Default *HELP* with XTM Rail Motor upgrade please

Hi guys,
Im new here, Basically I have just bought an Xtm rail. At first i was very excited by its power and then realised it was not as expected, i love the design and realistic look. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with telling me what motor i could upgrade it with. What is the best castle creations engine and esc i could install while running on 6s.
Thanks

Castle 2200kv motor paired up with the Mamba Monster esc. It will have STUPID speed on 6s if that's what you're after. But you better have spare parts.

In order to fit a mamba monster, it will require you to space up the motor mount. The stock motor mount will also limit you on your gearing (I believe to 3 different sizes) so choose wisely on your motor setup and make sure ur gearing will be safe on 6s.

I only know this because I have had a buddy do such a mod on multiple XT2s for other people. He did his on the original xterminator race roller
