Default brushless gear for a TC3??

I found an old TC3 that I got and ran twice when the TC3 first came out. Looking to make it go fast in the street in front of the house...what would be a decent inexpensive esc/motor combo? New to the brushless side.

I have 2s lipos now..so that is what would be powering it, but going higher is not out of the question.

the diffs cant take the extra load,you could make a spool for the front but getting a rear ball diff to work with a hot b/l motor is asking for trouble,i ran my old tc3's with drifting tyres and 10.5 motors and the diffs struggled even then ,if its just for bashing you could lock up the diffs,but then the drivetrain comes into play as its quite easy to strip the diff ring gear

as a starting point you could get a 5.5 motor that can also be run on 3s also the same with the esc and if its not quick enough on 2 s you can upgrade the battery,ive seen a tc3 last about 10 minutes on 3s with a low kv unsensored motor and it would backflip,killed the drivetrain within the first 5 minutes the continued to destroy it for another 5 untill it finally gave up
i would go for a low wind sensored as your limited on gearing also
