uh i belive you can get it go faster than the 12 mph that its been radared at stock, you can put down to a 23t, into it and its fairly popular for crawling, + servos, and all the other useuall hop ups, i've heard they're a lot of fun but tops out at 12 stock but can go faster with better motor so i'ld get one

Yeah save your money.. I got one a couple months ago and am not to happy with it. It is fun to mod but for anything other then making into a crawler it sucks.. I'm actually looking at putting back together and selling.

As mentioned, it does ~12mph. Out of the box it is not meant for speed, but with a gearing, esc and motor swap, you can turn it into a quasi-speed demon. A few of us used to do this with our Lunch Boxes and Midnight Pumkins back in the day.

ohh crap i forgot to mention that the wheelie king holds the officail world speed record for an MT, i'ld personally get the sidewinder with the 4600 (about 9.5t) its 130 and you can go all the way up to 11.1 lipo vs the 5400 it stops at 8.4 v with the sidewinder

It has a very strong transmission and axles. It can handle some power. The main issue is going to be keeping it off its roof...........some suspension work (lowering) will probably be needed for maximum effect.
