Try a Neu 1100 series motor.

This video shows the NEU 1105/1.5y motor geared at 19/45 with a final drive of 5.99:1 with the Evolight 2s lipo pack and a Mamba Max ESC that I saw on another board.

Your controller might not handle the following, but if you want the fastest here you go:

Mega Motor

ACn16/15/1 (9200Kv, 6 pole great torque) (http://www.megamotorusa.com/BrushlessNew/ACn16-15-1.htm)

Neu Motors

1105/1Y (10500Kv, 4 pole a little less torque then 6 pole)
1105/2D (9700Kv)
1110/1D (9200Kv)

If you call Neu, they might even make you a 1105/1D and a 1107/1D, but those would be crazy 20000Kv and 12000Kv (Just guessing, but D winds are usually about double the Kv of Y winds).

Just wondering why you need the fastest motor? Guess that's ok if you are just going straight but I've seen plenty of RC cars that have far more power than the driver can use. An RC18t can easily be made to jump huge distances with just 7.2 volts. The problem is being able to land on all four wheels.

There used to be a kit out to put a 540 motor in a 18th scale micro sedan. Trouble with it was you couldn't keep tires on it. Smoke a set in one run.
