    I know traxxas brushed motor isnít the best but your not gonna get much better with a brushed motor. Ide say save bite the bullet and go with a brushless system.

    The Titan 12T is not a bad motor, but the only one better that I can think of is the Holmes Hobbies Trailmaster Sport 12T 550. The Trailmaster Sport is made for trail trucks and rock crawlers, but it is a low-turn motor, so it should provide decent speed. Other than that, you will either have to get a larger-sized motor (not many brushed motors larger than the 550 size) or go brushless.
    Everyday's a gift, thus now is called the present.

    Maybe use the Traxxas power up program to get a discount on a VXL 3s system?

    Otherwise, I'd recommend theHW MAX10 SCT + 3200kv

    I'm thinking about getting a Castle Sidewinder SW4 ESC and a cheapo Amazon motor for my 2WD. I'd recommend doing something similar. Good quality ESC, cheap motor. It's worked for a few people.

    In the back of your slashes manual there's an explanation of how the power up program works.

    The HW MAX10 SCT is available at basicly every hobbystore
