Default Whats making my slash slow??

Slash vxl 2wd lcg chassis with flotek fusion body

Hit the hobby store the other day and felt a need for speed so i picked up a 29/76 pinion and spur but when i clocked the speed on a 3s i only got 47 mph.

The oldest part of the car is the battery ive never had a new one because the gens ace lipos last so long but i will admit its been the slightest bit ballooned for the last 3 years but all the cores still read 11.1v Lmk what you guys think

what motor is in the truck? if it's in the 3300 to 3900 KV range you're reached the limits of that motor. 47 for a short course truck is fast a freak. racers are only hitting maybe mid 30's on a bigger track.
