I currently have a Hobbywing max 8 in my Kraton and was wondering if I could run a Leapord 1480kv with it or not. Thank you

When they post stuff like this with specs, is this as high of kv as you should go?

https://www.hobbywingdirect.com/products/ezrun-max8?variant=1701815620
Motor Limit Brushless Motor Limit with 4S LiPo/12 cells NiMH: KV≤3000 (4274 size motor)
Brushless Motor Limit with 6S LiPo/18 cells NiMH:KV≤2400 (4274 size motor)

I just noticed... it's a "≤" in there. lol!

That said, couldn't you run a 3200-3800 3550 type motor as well?

Just asking for future needs if I have esc overheating issues running 3S with my castle 3800kv sct motors in my stampede and jato. Or if I continue having the esc shut down on me in my outcast with 4S due to heat, or assuming it's heat. Was thinking of running the max6 , higher current capability, but 6S:KV≤1500 of which I'm guessing is for a physically larger motor than the arrma outcast 2050kv motor.

So looking at that I should be fine. I know it can run a Leopard 4082 2000kv motor.
The 2000kv is 140A, 25V 3500W
The 1480kv is 115A, 23V 4200W

The higher kv runs hotter. Maybe your geared to high
