Default Electric Shrike 40

My Shrike 40 just isn't interesting, so I'm looking for a good electric motor with about the same power as a Webra 50 or OS 4gFX. Would like something that can actually get up some serious RPM. All suggestions - recommendations will be handily appreciated.

Add a pound of LiPo to a Shrike and it will get "interesting", all right.
