    4600 or 5700 will work good, 3800 has too much torque for the mini.

    so the 4600kv would be best for a high speed bash?

    The higher the KV usualllyyyy the more top end. The lower the KV usualllyyyy some more TQ. I know someone if going to tell me thats not totally true and I know that but its the basic rule for the motor KV.

    I have the 5700KV 2 pole. It gets hot pretty quickly running 3s so go 4 pole. I can backflip on command if I want to keep stripping my diffs. Crazy speed and TQ. Geared at 32t pinion / 50t spur I was seeing just about 50mhp, but I couldnt go any faster down my street without risking shattering my car against the curb. All out I could easly see 65+mph with added weight to the front to keep it grounded. That was with my MERV by the way.

    With the bigger summit tires and such I would probably go 4600KV, but stock setup right now... I see an easy 40+MPH on 3s. No reason to upgrade unless you brushed. If you want speed convert to a MERV.

    but i like the summit for the ground clerance and the the exo cage prolongs the life of the shell thats why i want to convert to a summit
    but on topic i would like to run 2s(parellel) with minimal heat . and with a 3s (planing on parellel)capability so the system wouldent have to stop half way throught the 3s run. still having a nice speed on 2s say 35-40mph and see what i can do with 3s
    but if there are eny other motors that would work better i could see



    whats a good low tempature gearing for 2s with the vxl well still having a good bash speed?

    thanks guys
