The answer to that could be yes, if you are using the stock Tamiya plugs, then yes, the Dean plugs will be better for you. The tamiya plugs generate heat and have poor connection. The Deans will solve those problems.

Find a gearing chart for the cars you are racing against & your car. Compare the final drive # and get as close to that as possible. Then, if all things are comparable, you should be about as fast as they are.

There are upgrades needed if you want the car to be competitive on the track, better shocks, a slipper set up (I believe there is a conversion kit to use the AE spur gears & slipper), tie rods...and other little bits and pieces. Make sure you are running the same tires as "the fast guys". Tires are everything on the track, off on tire selection, off on everything else. You have to plant the power your car has.

besides motor, gearing, esc, batts... tires!!!! are a biggest factor. after you get that straigth, I'd buy some Ti turnbuckle/hinge pins. I polish all my hinge pins for smoother action. Also the stock shafts. You want the suspensions as free moving as possible. Then I'd start buying all the lightened parts you can find. Those mods are usually not cheap for the amount of weight you same but they will start adding up and will give you a quicker car. I haven't spent the money for any ceramic bearings yet....I just relube them all w/ light oil..including all the diff/tranny bearings.
