    That combo would work well. The esc has tons of adjustment options.

    That will depend on the kv of the motor. Maybe try the 2050kv Tekin. Should have good torque and turn more rpm than the stocker.

    How well would a 1800kv motor do?

    The 1800kv should be fine. You will pick up a little bit more speed vs the stock motor. Always keep an eye on temps for the first couple of passes and gear accordingly to heat. I've always wanted to run a Tekin so if you pick one up let me know.

    Yep you will still get more rpm with the 1800kv motor. Should work well.

    I am running the tekin rx8 2000kv truggy in my e-revo. it has more than enough torque for an e-revo, for an XO-1 I would consider going to a higher kv. I don't think you will have a problem with a lack of torque. I was considering the 1700kv for more torque but ended up getting the 2000kv because it was available first. I think the 1700KV would have been to much torque for me. I hope this helps, and I am sure what ever you go with you will not be disappointed. If you want some more information on the tekin set up you can pm me.
