Bigger engine or buy a more performance oriented engine of the same displacement, use a taller spur for higher speed or use a smaller one for more punch off the line...

You could also use smaller tires but you'll have to change the gearing.

Another thing is a higher nitro content but youll need to change your plugs can't remember if it's a colder plug for more nitro or a hotter plug.

Yes try a gearing change and fuel with a high nitro percentage, but smaller tires will make it slower, not faster.

Just remember there is a ying and yang with all mods. Going up in nitro will also tax the engine and shorten its lifespan.

Smaller tires give it faster acceleration...right? I've never experimented with tires.

Also have I mentioned leaning the engine a little.
