Default Brushless upgrade from a Firebolt 15t?

I picked up a Sprint 2 Sport kit recently and it came with a 15t motor. I do some parking lot "racing" at work with some guys who have the Sport 2 Flux cars on a short asphalt course. Their cars are quite a bit faster, though they can't really use all of the top end on our little track. I was wondering if I came across a really good deal on a Vektor 4000kv or a Vektor 4800kv, would it be a good upgrade compared to the 15t? I figure it wouldn't be as fast as the 5900kv but that's fine, so long as it's faster than the 15t I have in there since it would be more usable power and I'd get longer battery life.

I put a Castle 1406 system in mine, made the car a lot of fun. Right around the $100 mark. I also got a Venom 2S right before which ate my Firebolt but was fine for the Castle.

Consider getting a spare rear drive belt too after the power upgrade (ran mine for less than a month before snapping the rear belt ... no prob it's a whole $7).
