Best thing to do would be spend some money on a more capable car than the TT01, get one where the shaft isn't plastic, and is designed for powerful motors.
The 3.5 is a very powerful motor and the TT01 wasn't designed for it. The plastic dogbones will twist, the diffs would lose a lot of power etc etc.
The amound of $$$ you would need to make it suitable would be more than the cost of a new car.
Alternatively lost at least 1 or even 2 cells off the batteries and then it may work, although the torque will stil be very hard on the drivetrain
