Q-500 electric motor

Hi, I'm looking for the electric motor to replace the thundertiger pro on my Q-500.
I have tried the turnigy 35x42 and the 35x48 . They don't crank a 9x6 fast enough
on 4s lipo 2600 pack. The 35x48 with an 8x8 prop preforms like a good 32 ,which leaves much to be desired.They are just not hot enough. I don't want to spend $200.
on an entry class pylon racer. Does anyone know of reasonable outrunner or in runner direct drive that might work with a max 5s cell lipo?

I would ask that question in the High Performance forum.

For $100.00 a rimfire .46 would work. Mine turns a 10x7 on 6s. If you're interested, here it is:

I'm planning on putting a cheap 35-48 in mine, but this is for sport flying. And I'm planning on running 6S voltage. Probably a big bite 10 inch prop.
