The Trinity {green} Monster motor wil add -I'd say another 5mph. Get a six cell 1100mah pack. Team losi sport has one with the wall charger for about 35. Or you can get a peak ac/dc chacrger from dynamite for about 70. The dynamite will charge in 20 min. The wall charger takes 2 hrs. If you want to fly, try the Epic Baja motor or the Venom racing fireball{if you cn get it- mines on backorder}. Remember that these motors really need 7.2 volts to do the trick and your batteries lose power quickly. In your travels if you run across any titanium turnbuckles or 9 tooth pinions please let me know. Hope this helps

For turnbuckles you can use Ti tc3 turnbuckles they all must be 1-1/8" and you will need 6

But i used the steel ones and work just as well because they are so much better than stock and half the price of Ti. Oh and the ball cup you need are racers edge they fit right onto the stock studs. You can get those and the steel turnbuckles thru stormerhobbies.com for about 20 bucks or so.
