Hi Darren,

Not knowing your budget, (I am a budget boater myself) an adapted version of Mozzyrocks' set-up will get you running much faster without investing lots of money:
- Motor: your stock 1620KV
- ESC: the Hobbyking T-180
- Lipo: preferably two of the biggest capacity and C-rate 6S lipo's that will fit in the hull, wired in parallel.

With 32000 rpm at the prop (which needs to be sharpened and balanced, prior to running those high revs!) and once the boat is dialed in (strut height, propangle, CoG ect.), you'll be pleaseantly surprized how quick it'll run.

Things to do on the hull:
- sharpening all trailing edges
- sanding the running surfaces dull (600 grid)

Regards, Jan.
