When you say faster do you mean all out in a straight line down the road or do you still want it go off road etc.
If all out speed is what you want a 3s lipo would give you that for sure. let us know how you use it and what type of terrain you run. For tires you cant go wrong with pro-lines, I run the dirt works on my truck and they handle most terrain great. They do ballon alot over 40 mph though.

alright, most of the essential upgrades are already on your truck with the rpm parts. there is one more part that you need to make a pretty much bullet proof rustler, and that is aluminum castor blocks and bearing carriers. with those, you'll have a pretty much bullet proof truck. it still might break, but it's not as likely. i'd get several 2s lipo's, 5000mah 20c at least, from www.hobbyking.com or www.hobbypartz.com and one 5000mah 30c 3s lipo for when you want stupid fast and showoff speeds. 2s is plenty for normal running, but 3s is nice for speed runs and stupidity running.

You have a VXL rustler so that mean VXL-3 and VeliNeon 3500kv motor so you can run on 3S lipo and you want faster? Any faster and it wont be steerable.
