Default i need peoples views

i have a HPI rush with 21 turn motor in and a eletrical starter(got too many blisters of the pull starter). the thing is with such a powerful motor in the backend goes right to the ground even with the hardest shocks in when it accelerates. i have had a looked at it and there is room to add another pair of shocks on the back, would it be worth it o am i better off changing the motor to a less powerful motor. any advice would be helpful

also if you are using HPI shocks, pick up some Tmaxx shocks (stock ones are fine, and can be bought in a set of 8 on ebay for like 20 bucks)

They are much stiffer and stronger than HPI stockies. I got them on the rear of my NMT right now.
