i have no experience with your ESC and the motor, so i cant tell you how fast it will go. I am using a HW 120A V2.1 with a Team Powers 10.5T motor, with boost and turbo on up to 50 degrees, my car is as fast as a nitro car on the straights, perhaps even faster, and i am driving a car that is as old as the tc3, from 2001. If your esc has boost and timing, then you will go very very fast. The trick with a shaft car is to accelarate gently, so set your punch to the lowest. I think you shouldnt concern yourself about top speed only, without control, speed is nothing, beleive me i have been there, struggling to get my car to grip at the rear under braking and punching out of corners, now that i have the grip, i can really go all out.
as for 70mph, i dont think so, perhaps 70kmh...
