One of the castle sidewinder system combos would work great I think.

Contact John @ BSR Tires - he made speed run CAPPED tires a few years ago that worked really well - unless you are trying to top 200 mph - then you'd want someone to build you TALLER wheels - maybe carbon fiber, and run FOAM that isn't too thick - so it doesn't BLOW off the wheel.

It's hard to keep tires on the cars over 120+ mph (and most regular TC tires - don't make it past 70 or so)

I actually was trying to go at least 100mph...I got a pretty stock tc4. . Got me a 120a 9100kv Hobbywing combo.. but I'm guessing I can't put a 4s lipo.. so I will have to do only.. 3s.. sooo.. i have a 60t spur with 45t pinion.. and some cheap foam tires..

Just order a 52t spur gear.. and 48t pinion gear..

Not quite sure what I'm gonna get out of it.. but hope it is good. got a match with a 1/8 gt with mamba monster 2200kv.. lol..his doing 100mph.. with 6s..

I might have to need a mamba max esc..to use 4-6s lipos! That's were the real speed is..

Yeah a mmp is rated up to 4,6s, but make sure the motor is also, most 540-550 cans are only rated for 2-3s max

If you plan to use a high KV motor and multi-cells, just remember HIGH RPMS blow the tires off really quick - and it's really easy to over gear and burn your electronics to the ground.

Get a good balance on your aero/downforce. Just a tiny spoiler on the rear wil pull your front wheels off the ground at high speed really quickly.

I also want a 3s combo for my touring car to run in nitro tracks with same speed of nitro models, but I don't know what to buy.
There is no much choice in this class, do you know something good for my target ?

Are you looking for something cheap? Or you wanna race?

Hobbywing.. Castle or Novak.. the kv depends on your track condition.. you really wanna gear right. for touring i would go for higher kv.. 5k or more..

Youtube search " 100mph rustler in traffic ". That guy runs 1/8 scale Castle power on 6s. Watch related videos, he "hints" about different things its took to go that fast without distructing. Foams are a must, all metal gears, lots of weight on nose, etc.
