Good God don't encourage this poor guy !! Here's what you really need to know. You can make any of these things go really fast. The other part of that equation is 1. can you make the car FULLY capable of handling it and 2. Can you drive it at those speeds.....safely. Given your comments I'd say no. Stay away from this kinda stuff. It's unsafe and can get expensive.

realisticly the acutal chassis (for the most part) isnt going to be a big deciding factor in straight line speed. the motor, electronic speed control, batteries, and gearing is what is going to decide the top speed.

you wont find many onroad cars claiming top speeds on the box like you see on traxxas offroad products.

See what parts are carried by your local hobby shops. That way when you're doing your top speed run and jams itself under a parked car tire, you can buy all the parts to fix it. I'd love a 416 but where I'm at there's a better choice of Cyclone parts.
