All that sounds far fetched . I Havnt had the chance
To run them yet because I haven't bought batteries
The 9T combo will not give you those speeds. and besides that if you do attain those speeds, controllability might be an issue. If you are just running at will in a parking lot you can just put in something more powerful. But if you wanna drive it in a circuit with other cars, then you need a car that handles somewhat ok. The 9T combo will probably only give you a top speed of 30mph.If you want faster then go for the EZrun 5.5T combo. Get sticky tyres cause its no use to have fast but uncontrollable car.
Its always better to use the aluminium motor mounts no matter what.
I do have a traxxas 4-tec track report from Rc Car action if you are interested.
My advice is just dont think of speed, but factor in drivability too. Dont forget at 60-70mph your tires will wear out very quickly and any hit will damage your car.
