Do you want big, or faster? Bigger (more torque) won't help unless you're going to run a bigger prop as well. You could go a bit bigger, and higher kv and go faster on the same prop.

I believe the mystic is the same boat as the MG with an upgraded 1800kv motor . I would not go much bigger then a 3674 2200 kv motor with a x440 or x442 the 442 is the biggest I would go with this motor . Use the same battery packs no more then 4s . That said ,I've heard this boat runs well right out of the box . I would first try tweaking the set up and different propellers . Just my two cents .

Try props with higher pitch but less mm in size and keep 4s power.
