Most speed controller is designed only for 4 to 7 cells ( 8.4V ) max.

If you double the battery in series to get more speed like u said, there will be 12 cells ( 14.4V ), ...... Your ESC, Rx and Servo will leave this earth and straight to nirvana for good.

If you want to go high voltage properly, buy novak super duty xr

You could get a cheap 19turn that will make it go plenty fast.

Default 7t motor

the 19t should have been faster if the are both the same type of motor. less turns is always faster. i would recommend i little bit more battery capacity if going to 7t, which would be ungodly fast if youve never experienced it. What the heck though, if you're just f'n around at home, get a 7t and have fun, just try not to hit anything

Don't use a 7 turn... It will destroy your car in an instant and the motor won't last long.

A checkpoint 19t money motor should be faster than you need.

A "cheap" 19t is going to be slower than the higher quality 23turn.

Possibly due to wrong gear ratio?! 26T pinion on 19t motor might take a while to reach top speed... If you're bashing in a hugh space, with enough straight, should get to its top speed eventually. Not idea if doing it in a tight rc track.

19t should have more RPM, 23t have more torque. Base on the same gear ratio, 19t runs faster in a bigger track with its higher top speed. 23t runs better in a tight, short track as it reach its top speed faster(higher torque).

WAY back in the day when I had a TL01, my buddy and I threw in a 6T Trinity D2. I was BLAZINGLY fast .... but then the plastic bushings melted and I had to upgrade to bearings

If you're after more speed, try 11.1V LiPo, or even 14.8V....

If looking for more run time, a 6000mAH LiPo... ?

I'm not sure if a 6000Mah Lipo will fit in a TL01. It has a very specific battery...slot/tray/holder? If you were going to buy a Lipo I would either do it in person to make sure it fits, or buy one that claims to be the same size as a standard 6cell pack.

Exclamation batteries

....and I wouldn't use a 11.1V on a 19t motor though. Can you say "burn baby burn". If you are still confused, just know that everyone who has replied to your thread is right in their own way, these kinds of things need to be even more specific.
