an 11.1 v battery will give you some serious speed, id say around 55-65 mph, or around 80-100 kph

Go dragracing when you want to go fast. They use lots of batts and low turn motors and they hit over 100km/u easily.

+1 curcuit racing will only unleash a certain speed out of your motor... then you are saying hello to the outside track boards ....
