    160 max. I still run a handful of Fantom Modifieds and like to keep those in the 130/140 range.
    My way is like the wrong way....only faster.

    That would be a good start but you might also try disengaging the motor and rolling the truck back & forth to make sure there isn't binding somewhere else that is causing extra friction.
