    Which powertrain are you looking to run? And which voltage as well? The part list which needs upgrading highly depends on that information

    I can make this pretty easy for you. It is an expensive venture....

    On the Slash 4x4 LCG I hit 83 mph on 3s with the Mamba monster 2 esc and castle 2200kv
    (imagine what it would have done on 6s? )

    Setup was as follows:
    Saga center motor mount (places motor over the center drive shaft)
    Saga battery trays to run 2 batteries
    Slipper eliminator (eBay)
    Spur: Revo 34t spur (mod 1) (metal)
    Pinion (mod 1) size but something around 30t would get you to your goal (Saga is also good for this one)
    Castle Mamba monster 2 esc and castle 2200kv motor
    MIP X-duty axles or the Tekno M6 conversion axles/hubs set
    MIP 17mm hex conversion
    GRP S3 tires/wheels
    Delta Plastics speed run body for the Slash (held with proline mounts)
    GTR Shocks XL front XXL Rear with very hard revo springs.
    500k diff fluid in the rear

    i was thinking beginning on 3s to see what it can do then when i get the most out of that hop up to 4s and i am looking at the sidewinder 8th motor combo my plan is to do a somewhat budget build not to expensive but not with all cheapo parts if that makes sense
