What battery are you running it on?

The stock motor is 4500kv, and the traxxas is only 4000kv. Unless you change the gearing it'll actually be slower on the traxxas motor.

I think if you run it on 3s and/or change the gearing you'll get a bunch more speed out of it.

Doesn't matter how big the motor is unless you change the gearing. The larger will absolutely have more torque, but unless you change gearing it won't make top speed any faster at all.

To be honest, I would go to a bigger pinion (keep an eye on motor/esc/battery temps) before swapping out the motor/esc.

You'll also need a bigger lipo or a higher C pack to run the traxxas system.

How about a mamba micro pro or the sidewinder micro?I've heard many bad things about the VXL-3M ESC.But I've had no problems with my VXL-3S till date.

From what I hear,the merv does 30-35 mph stock with NiMHs.On 2 6-cell NiMHs in series,it hits 50 mph.

I just did the sidewinder micro upgrade with the 8000Kv motor and I can't punch the throttle any more (on 3S 1300MaH LiPo). Crasy fast.
