    any motor rated 120A and lower should be fine

    Your gearing would be the issue with a higher KV motor.
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    If i kept it low like i have now 13/52 that would be ok wouldnt it?
    It doesnt matter if its 2 or 4 pole?

    A 4-pole motor is going to have more torque than a 2-pole, that's all. So a 4-pole motor with a higher KV would be the best of both worlds, kinda.
    Get a IR temp gun to monitor your motor and ESC temps for proper gearing.
    Just a schmoe....

    Depending on your ESC's switching limit, KV can be too high for reasons other than temps. However, a 2700KV on 3S is well within what the WP-SC8 can do. I currently use mine on 3S with a 2800KV.
