you do know there are a few other things to consider when you say "faster engine".
a fast reving engine doesn't nessarily mean faster running truck as the engine may not have enough HP to pull your truck at that rpm and gearing combination. conversely speaking, a low reving (high-torque) engine may get your truck ran faster with the right gearing combo. you should also understand that there will be trade-offs between accelleration and top speed and its quite hard if not impossible to get both. in most cases, you settle for what best suites your driving.

i believe you're looking for engine upgrade, i'd search for a direct drop-in engine for your t-maxx. engine size of .18 or .21 or even .23 is available without any or just slight modification to your truck. OS, RB, Sirio, Picco, Fantom and a few other brands have engines in their line-up that are direct drop-in to your maxx. then get the right CB and spur gearing combo for your set-up that translates to the truck response that you desire
