Default Motor replacement for my Traxxas Rustler

I have a traxxas rustler with the XL-5 ESC and just burned up my motor (Titan 12T) that came with it. I am looking for a good replacement that has more low end take off power and higher speed than the original motor did. Is there any suggestions. With all the different turn motors I am lost as to where to even start.

I currently have street tires and drive mostly on my driveway and street but I do get in the dirt sometimes also so a motor that will be a good general purpose use motor.

Thanks for any help.

You could look for a 19 Turn motor. That will provide you with the best combination of low end torque and top speed. You can look for the Trinity Komodo Dragon :


Or you could go for the Orion Element:


Both of these are great motors and provide tons of power. Which ever one you choose will not disappoint.
