Default motor and esc question

hi
i dont race or any thing like that but i want to get more speed out of my car
would i be correct in thinking the less turns on the motor the faster my car will go if geared correctly
if i got a esc with no motor limit rated at 690 amps(dont know what it means but it says that on the box)
what would be the best motor to buy for my setup
thankyou

What kind of mph speed are you looking to get? If it's around 50 you can get that just with a mod motor and 6 cells.

i wonder if that old of a car can handle that kind of speeds , you can get a touring car up to 50 easily, just have good batteries.

its a bit old but as you have mention it still run 50 not bad. batteries do help much on the top end speed as well as you gearing set-up. In terms of battery go with gp 3300 or the new release sanyo 3600.

no, no, no, don't get the 3600's, first of all, wait until they have there second or third generation of those batteries, and those batteries have horrible resistance and volts, all they have is runtime, they suck for performance. I say, get a trinity D6 6 turn, GP3300 batteries, a Novak esc that has no limit, A put a very small spur gear on it and a medium size pinion gear.

If you want to go to a low turn motor you'll really need a motor lathe so you can keep it in good condition. Maybe an orion revolution 10t, you can get alot of runs out them before having to do much and you could just go to a local hobby shop now and then and have them cut the comm for you.

So you mean 3600 batteries are not yet tested best in racing??. Good thing you said it coz next week my buddy is selling me his 3 sets of 3600. maybe thats teh reason why he selling it to me for half of the actual price?. tnx..
