    So if they have the same torque you can throw them in the same truck with the same final drive ratio and the high kv will perform the same just with higher top speed? But you will be accelerating...

    I would get one, but the problem with this is that the chassis is soo short and wide to get correct positioning and having the wheels under the wheel wells, you would need to stretch the chassis. Now...

    Depends how cold it is... I've seen many do that in the cold (below 0) get a light bend, or crease and the paint flakes like that. It seems more common on a paint that is not original factory paint.
