Although the stock top speed may not be as high as expected, having Two engines gives you more than enough power to do some serious gearing work. Changing gear size should push it way over 45mph.

Id love to see that! With the right gearing maybe. However, not likely in stock form, if ever.

I have 13/17 cb's on my twin which gave me the top speed without sacrificing torque.

I do not actually have a radar or any guage for top speed.

But, honestly, if my T-maxx 2.5 goes 40mph, my estimate that the twin goes around 45-50 mph.

Don't quote me on this though.

Radio control Magazine had a review and said they clocked it at 43 mph. Sounds reasonable.

What issue was this which clocked the speed?

Thanks.
