I use a trinity monster HP stock motor in mine, works good.

Lots of torque, and pretty fast.

Yes, every time you punch the throttle.

Go with a 550 Titan, my buddy put one in his TLT-1 and it just fits without having to shave anything and on an old 6 cell 2400mah sub-c pack it has gobbs of torque.

it doesn't wheelie!! you'll have to lock your diff first!! and a titan come's out of an E-maxx right? that's an 14.4 volt motor! use a 19 turns corraly streetracer motor and that is fast enough!!

I use a venom fireball 21turn motor in my tlt, its cheap($14 ebay) and it wheelies like crazy, can't keep the front or back down
I use integy 55turn's in my clod, they are awesome for crawling but you won't get any wheelies out of them.
