Hello everyone, a month ago I purchased a redcat shredder, 80A 1500kv 4s and love it but now have been infected by the mod bug...

It's very durable except for the body! It first started off as a green decal filled body, then sprayed truck bed liner inside, then debadged, then sprayed exterior with truck liner, and duct tape(also used flame duct tape as mud flaps,hilariously simple and cost effective!) in between breaks.
I'm wondering if I should get larger capacity lipos or run a better esc and motor. There's a guy on youtube that installed a mamba monster 2200 combo but it's meant for 1/8th scale.
I've added larger wheels (big joe with axial beadlocks) and also added leds front back and inside with seperate lipos, so it adds up to about 20lbs compared to the stock 10lbs so maybe 8th scale motors will suffer? I have no idea.
Another route I'm thinking of getting a 150a esc and run 6s lipo but don't if the stock 1500kv would handle it, there are no specs for this motor, any help would be awesome!
