it really depends on the motor that you put in it.

So if I wanted to increase the speed, I just have to buy a better motor? That's all? Will I have to do anything else?

an esc is short for electric speed controll witch you will need to get,dont worry to much about knowing the names of the parts youll find them out like the arms and hubs witch are the things that hold the cvd, the thing that comes out to spin the tires. i dont know what all of the parts are. if you do need any other help well be here

go to www.rc10.com to find info on the car... you can dl parts lists and manuals which will have the exploded views you're asking for...

the Team Kit TC4 and RTR are excellent first time cars...

Thanks

That is what I kinda figured, I'd rather shave them then use the weak stock ones from AE. Shure would be cool if RPM made some lo profile ball cups.

I used the Barry Baker IIC setup from rc10.com. It seems like a decent starting point.
