Default FLM Stampede build help!?

I want a reliable, strong and fast truck problem is I was running it the other day for the 5th time for about 30 mins and the motor fried... I have a million different ppl pushing and pulling me in diff directions so I need some help please, only is NOT an issue....

Things to consider

-full FLM 1/8 scale conversion on my stampede, now obviously bigger and heavier
-I have the vxl3 system with the esc fan
-my spur gear is 56 teeth
-pinion is 18
-I run a 6400mah 11.1 3 cell venom lipo

Is the Vxl system fine or should I do a bigger motor considering its a bigger and heavier car?

Is the battery fine or should I run a 2 cell? I was told 3 cell is too much?

Are the spur and pinion gears fine or should I go higher or lower? (The current ones were recommended to me by the hobby shop although I think he was just trying to take my money instead of being really helpful)

All input is appreciated feel free to ask any other questions that may help the responses, remember I want it to be fast nothing crazy but quick, strong and above all reliable enough to play withal long as I got batteries for all day fun...

Thank you in advance!

The VXL system is about a 3500 KV motor and will support the 11.1 Volt 3 Cell LiPo battery packs. The VXL is installed in many Traxxas Trucks. Lower gearing would be best if you increase the weight or choose a 1/8 Scale motor.

Most 1/8 Scale Buggies and Truggies are running a higher Torque 120 AMP 2200 or 2650KV motors because of the weight of these 1/8 scale. WIith one of these motors you can run higher gearing.

Running a3 Cell battery on the factory motor is why they are burning up so fast as you have already seen. Too much power to the motor will get them veryhot and fry them
