Default Making an FS12-SS Tamiya engine faster?

I know it's a starter engine on a TT01 chassis but i'm trying to squeeze an extra couple of mph out of it as my friend has the same setup yet i'm being left behind

I'm running it lean but not too lean, I still get a fair bit of smoke but I don't know what the average speed for these engines are.

Anything cheap I can do?
