Chances are you will not be able to upgrade the motor in this car.

If it did in fact use a 540 size motor which is what pretty much all 1/10 "real" cars use, the amount of current the motor would draw at 9.6volts would most likely burn up the electronics.

The best way to find out is to take the car to a local hobby shop and have them look at it. They might be able to come up with a motor that would be mildly better than what is in there now but, don't expect to get a motor that will make it twice as fast.

Good Luck and let us know how it turns out.
