I'll bet your 9116 would not keep up with my Stampede!
This was a Stampede, but an original brushed one, probably 10 years
old, at least. It's got a Green Machine stock motor, with ball bearings added.
The tires are Pro Line Street Hawgs and are pretty heavy, and to top
it off, I need new batteries. It's geared for torque and run time, so top end is only
around 25 Mph.
With a hot mod motor, high gearing and foam tires, I've probably had it going 50+.
The blue anodized aluminum screws are a great way to shave weight.
The shocks are from a Duratrax Evader that got cannibalized.

EDIT: My mistake, this is a Rustler, but we have a brushed Stampede as well.

If yours is a brushless, I've seen those run, they are stupid fast
