    did you try different batteries? it could also be any electronics or the drivetrain. something might be locked up.

    timrock told me that if you get a 10c battery and a 12t motor that and electric will run up 100mph. I don't know what you think but that's fast for electric!

    ya thats true. ya but your esc needs to be able to handle 10cells. the duratrax streak works great and its only $40

    thats pretty good man but the traxxas nitro rustler goes 47+mph stock but 60mph is pretty impresive

    You people are so gulable. 10 cells,12 turn will NOT get you 60! its will get you around 45. Nitro is much stroger than any electric,t will cost you much more than nitro to get you going fast.
