Oil for street try to use softer oil. around 25-30wt 3 holes piston. And the spring you are using is really stiff...... try something 2.8 to 3.0 front and 2.6 to 2.8 rear. In modified class we are running 4.5t motors. As these motors with right gearing and battery you can get around 90-100km/h speed on the straight. You really need some good tires, surface and setup to get the car handle properly. On dusty street surface try some 24 or 25 degree rubber, or for foam use 30 or 32 degree foam for nitro touring. For the foam make sure you run the tires design for front in front and for rear for rear. Even the hardest is same the compound is different.

try losi or associated shock oil. and look at compaines other than thunder tiger, yiu will quickly see there are many better products out there to choose from. tamiya has many great touring cars that can be had for cheap and will perform better at speed.

The esc can, the motor cannot. It will spin at rpms that are too high.
