How to increase more speed in my caldera 10e?
 
<span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">The top speed of my caldera 10e can only go 48 mph. I've try different pinion gears with stock spur but still top out the same. I have the tacon 3650 4000k. Will a 1/8 motor make it faster or will I need a 1/10 motor with a higher kv motor? Just looking to get more speed. I'm using 3s</span>

Go for a 4 pole. Here is a very reasonable one.

This will allow you to put a larger pinion and go faster.

You could go another step up and go for a 2650kv 1/8th motor but you'll need a big pinion to get it up to speed.

The Caldera is limited in the size of pinion you can use: I'd say go up in KV instead: though you're already running on 3s and the Caldera isn't really designed for land speed records :). Once you get up around 5000kv it's harder to find a motor that says it will take 3s that's not too expensive, maybe this?

I was looking at these two tacon motor:<div>Tacon 3650 6t 5900k or 3674 6t 2800k</div><div>
</div><div>How much different can I gear these two motor if I plan to use one of them. How much bigger of a pinion to the stock 51spur to get a higher speed? Since there's no smaller spur I can use. Unless there is one?? </div>
