    Mamba Monster would be the best ESC/Motor upgrade. If you run the monster with two 11.1 4000+ lipos it'll hit it's potential 5 horse power. Best ESC/Motor on the market for large 1/8th and up scales.

    mamba monster
    Dealer for..Redcat, Traxxas, Associated, Cen, Racers Edge, RD Logic, Losi, HPI, E-flight, Himoto, Venom, Heli-Max, O.S...etc
