Default upgrading tt-01 motor

Hey guys.

I'm new to the forums and this will be my first post. Anyways I have a tt-01 that I want to upgrade to go faster. I'm not going to track it or anything like that, Just want it to go faster. After looking around the forums for suggestions, I found out it'd be best not to upgrade to the strongest motor, but one that isn't going to wreck the gears. So.. I chose the motor Novak Havoc 1-10 Spec Brushless System 17.5 NVK3035, which comes with the ESc (correct me if I'm wrong). I don't want to get in the business of changing the gears or that kind of stuff. Do you guys think the motor I chose is compatible with the stock tt-01? if there are any other motors or any other parts that you guys think will be better, please lmk.

Btw, what is lipo? I hear all these new terms that I'm not aware of... gotta get used to it... I am just running Nihm batteries with the stock motor and it lasts really short.

I ran my tt01 with a 5.5 brushless system and 2s lipo and had no problems but im sure a few people on hear wouldnt recommend it! I did upgrade the driveshaft and swapped all the bushings for ball bearings both of which dont cost very much

wow, 5.5? ... I'm running a 10T and I personally thought that's was a bit too much for the tt01 to handle, but it could also be the balance of my car I guess if your running 5.5 perfectly fine.

mkim11, definitely recommend you upgrade the plastic bearing to metal ones as suggested - a bag on ebay is usually 10-20 depending on quality - you;ll get a much smoother ride and increase in speed as there is less friction.

If you decide to go with a brushless motor certainly get LiPo batteries, NiMh just didn't do the job for my brushless motor, it couldn't sustain the current needed.
