Best options for boosting speed on a Combat Wing?

Hi all

We have a standard XE Combat Wing, with 6V speed 400 motor running on 7 and 8 cell 600 ae nicad batteries. I was wondering what our options are in terms of boosting performance. Should we be using a hotter battery, or changing the motor? What's will give the best bang for buck?

Thanks

Peter

I think a search of the site wil start you down some good tracks. typical upgrade is Magnetic Mayhem car motor with 6*5 prop. I've seen 10 cells as well, don't even bother with 7. Motor timing helps, too.

that or alot of people are and were using a astro 020 revers rotation. You can even go with the standerd rotation as long as you get a Pusher prop. Mega motor 16/15/4 or 5 turn would also work well.

I was wondering about car motors - we will soon have a surplus 20 turn motor that comes with an off road truck. Would this be suitable?
