Default Please help me set up my "pavement pounder"

Hello everyone,
I've got one of those stupid ideas where I need to go wicked fast.
I have a 4300kv rustler that suits my dirt and gravel needs. I'm needing to put something together for parking lot fun.
I don't race as there are no tracks ANYWHERE near me and I couldn't really afford to if there were.
That also brings up an important point. This NEEDS to be as low budget as possible.
I have the following to work with....
an unknown 1/12 pan car
unknown 1/10 pan car
Tamiya F103
all three have spurs but no pinions

and I just bought a TC4 from a forum member

I have several 2s lipos, several spare receivers
I have two g-force 3650 4 pole motors, a 4300kv and a 5200kv
I'm leaning toward selling the pan car/f1 stuff and focusing on the tc4
using the 5200 for speed runs, and the 4300 for everything else.
what do you guys think?

Not very familiar with speed runs but I can tell you lot of people use the TC4 for such a thing. Appears you already have a TC4 so your halfway there

Hello Marc from the opposite end of the state, NW corner here.
Speed run may very well be an improper term for what I want to do.
What I meant by it was straight line top speed. Like going to a big parking lot and just running flat out.
Obviously not something I would do often as I imagine it would get REALLY boring really quick. But it would be nice to occasionally go out and just crank on it.

I still think an over powered TC4 is the best bet for wooing fans in the Wal-Mart parking lot. On a perfect surface the 1/12 stuff would be faster, but that's not what we are talking about is it? Only the TC4 can handle that kind of abuse. A Rustler would be better than the 1/12 and f1 stuff. Just because it's better at getting tortured.

For top speed make sure your car reaches it at about 70% down the straight. If you get to the end and still haven't topped out, after a while you may overheat the motor and or ESC. Good luck.
