Default DESC210 RTR

I recently got the Durango 2wd 1/10th scale. I want to upgrade the motor so I can go faster. Though I am new to RC cars and not sure what to look for. Any suggestions would be great. It has a 13.5 brushless motor stock.

About how fast is it now and how much faster do you want it to be?

13.5T is already a pretty quick motor for a 2wd SCT for most tracks. I run an 8.5T in my Losi 22T and had to gear down to get traction, even with really grippy tires on a hard dirt track. Are you racing it?
