You chose your props based on the motor and esc you are using. Over proping will damage your electronics.

What motor and esc and batterys you got?

My son and I just purchased a new traxxas spartan also.
We have upgraded it with dual intake rudder to cool the ESC and the motor separately. We have also upgraded on the trim pads and outlets.
I think I read someplace that if not careful, we can damage the flex drive. So, before we start experimenting, we are going to stay with the existing prop(s). Work from there.
We are running with the two 3s 5000 maH battery packs.
Going to take it for test run in a few days.
