Faster how? You do realize that speed is determined by gear ratios right? I don't care what motor you have, they all turn close to the same RPMs which means you aren't going to see much difference in top speed between motors. What you will see is a difference in how fast it reaches the top speed. If all you're wanting is more top end, go up 1 or 2 teeth on your clutch bell. Keep in mind that you will sacrifice bottom end to gain top.
I guess the real question I should ask is what are you doing and what is your goal? Are you wanting to turn faster laps at the track, or do you want to blaze up and down the road in front of your house faster?

JP2 or JP3 pipe, digital servos, aluminum clutch shoes, higher nitro content, changing teeth on clutch bell all help in making i faster.

How and why would you put a jp2 jp3 pipe on a small block engine?How are aluminum clutch shoes and digital servos going to increase top speed?

I would not spend $120 on a Nitro Rustler. There is nothing you can do with that money that will give you NOTICALBE speed.
