    What are your temps like? If they're under 140 degrees, then I would think it's safe to go up to 6s. That should get you pushing 70mph, but that's just an estimate.

    A temp gun. But what you need is. A 6s Battery or Dual 3s lipos. 22 pinion. and that's about it

    What is the stock pinion? Where can i buy a 22t? Will it work with my stock spur gear?

    Also is there any upgrades i can buy for this buggy?

    I think it's a 14t that comes with it. And yes it will work with the stock spur. And you find pinions at tower hobbies or any rc hobby website really, makes sure the pinion is for a 5mm shaft.. And I wouldnt upgrade anything until you break it

    What!. are you sure? if that's the case you should be going way faster on 4s. get a good 6s battery as your next choice. then go from there if it isn't fast enough for ya

    well next step is 6s. But for that gearing it doesn't seem all too right. just cycle the batt more and find out what tooth # the spur is

    Do you have pictures of the carnage? Where are you running it at, on your street?
