Default Losi Speed T clocked at 72MPH

I got a bone stock Speed T with a 26 pinion (stock is 20) and a Max Amps 3S 8000mah battery. Sent it through the speed trap at 72mph twice. Motor was not hot after the runs. My friend has the VXL Rustler and it went 66mph. The rustler had the same pinion and was very hot.

I know this is a squid post, but I am very impressed with it's speed out of the box.

That speed is impressive, but along the same lines and thoughts of a Jato - what can you do with a truck at 72mph, besided explode when you wreck or try to land a jump.
