Default High power 1/8 motor suggestions

Looking for some suggestions on a power house motor with a 5mm shaft to run on 4s.
Its going into my 1/8 converted OFNA LX buggy.
Currently, the best I have found is a turnigy motor putting down 2300w on 4s. It works out to an estimated 3hp.

I need to pickup an ESC so amperage is not an issue.

Any suggestions on a high power motor that won't break the bank?

I had looked at the sidewinder 8. Don't remember now why it wasn't on the list of potentials.
It is waterproof which saves me the hassle of plasti dipping the ESC.
