I found my new GO starterbox had an adjustment for this and its made a big difference hitting the wheel when its spinning at full rpms.
+1 you have to let the bump box motor rpm's top out... the other thing is run Deans or some other high current plug... I am running a 25c 4S lipo in my ofna truggy box for over a year now... If you are running the stock plug like a Tamiya type IT WILL MELT>>>

here is mine
