You race on the track or just playaround in the street and dirt ?

If your just bashing get a castle creations sidewinder.

Best value for money would be the Castle Sidewinder w/5700kv motor. Do you plan on still using a 6-cell nimh?

With a decent 6-cell nimh you should get around 35mph out of the 5700kv motor.
If you want some cheap power for now until you save up you could look at getting the Venom 17Tx2 Fireball Motor which is around $15. Not sure what limit the ESC is so probably be best not to go any lower than a 17T

I wouldn't go with the 5700kv motor it would damage those plastic outshafts and CV axles in no time.. I have one in my sp and its more the enough motor than anyone will ever need.

When Xtreme RC did the review on the SP they ran a 6900kv on 6 cell and got 42mph out of it

If you think you might want to race at some point, you should find out what the class restrictions are at your local tracks. This way you might be able to find a setup that will be fun for bashing but you can still race with later.

You can make it faster with a brushed motor as well. Really a personal choice. Not sure what the ESC in your rtr is rated for motor limit, you would want to check that before you bought a hotter brushed motor.

The sidewinder fits nice and is affordable. Brushless motor is a little longer but works for me.
