Default need new electric truck that can withstand 70mph

Im looking for a new truck/buggy! i just got a traxxas VXL system wit ha 3s lipo for my tamiya dark impact and it cant take the power. the gears strip every time i drive. i want a new truck that can take it. what good buggy could take the lipo pack and the motor power? or should i go with an associated T4? which would be a better choice? thanks guys

Default Truck

I would go with a T4 if you are going to race or a rustler for bashing.

Its as simple as... T3 Factory Team!!!
It's the best R/C I have owned yet.
If the trans withstood a Hacker Brushless running at 14.8 volts I think it should be good enough for you.
T3's are as tough as nails, Parts can still be found, And still do pretty good on the track.
BTW nice Bug Shirk. (Ill be getting one soon)
