    well it's kind of hard to do that with an electric motor. Because of there limits. But there are some very good electric motors out there.

    You should try to sell it and get a nitro powered truck. Because you sound like me. More power, and then more power. You'll never be happy with electric. My truck right now hits 60MPH and i am still not happy

    replace one of them with the epic and you'll probaby get it past 80 and you'll have great low end power as well as high end.

    You know what would be cool, if you put a remote on a real car and drove it around a track. now that would be cool, rc to the limit

    Higher battery voltage. if you are running 7.2 try 8 or 9. but after a little while you'll burn it out.
