    That's correct. You can thin of it as more kV=lower turn, less kV=higher turn.

    Check out the Castle 4600kV or 5700kV motors. I run a 5700kV motor on 2s and goes 50mph on a mild tune all day long (160F if I had to guess). I run absolutely 0 timing(need a Castle ESC and Castle Link) usually and it runs even cooler (150F) and still does 45mph.

    Hope this helps you out a little.

    Yeah I researched it a lot after I blew the motor. Wish I had researched before I bought. Just thought bigger was better.

    Getting ready to go play in the snow and ice. The road at this camp ground is just the perfect mix of pavement, gravel, snow, and ice to make for a great rally offroad experience. It was a blast.

    Actually you would be better off with the Castle 4 pole motors - The 2 pole 4600kv is too wimpy for a slash...

    I got a generic 5000kv motor from some website. At least I think that's what it is. Works just fine, plenty of torque and speed.
