Default Looking to build up a wltoys 144001 for speed runs!!!

hey everyone. Been a little while. Still having fun with my dromida. Although their about obsolete. I知 about to buy a wltoys 144001and set it up for speed runs. Having metal gears I figured this would be a better platform than the dromida. So I知 looking for information on setups guys are using to hit 70-80mph and above. I知 thinking above 80mph would be 4s.

I知 pretty sure the 3650 brushless will fit. What about the 3665 or even larger....?

Right now on hand I致e got a 9t with a 45a esc ready to drop in something. I know the esc is too small for speed runs but what about the 9T. I tried looking up info on this motor size (after a friend gave it to me) with no luck. Will a 9t create enough power for my goals or should I go with something different?

What size esc would be recommended, 120a?

Thanks for any comments or advise!

I think a 3665 will fit but it will be a tight squeeze you might have to shave the servo mount a tad.
Is it a sensored motor? If so I would go with the Hobbywing 10BL120 sensored esc, I've seen guys running it on the 144001 Facebook group.
