      to be honest…the RTR 3 is pretty well equipped with a tuned pipe and all…When I was racing mine at the HPI challenges, the Nitro Stock cars (like yours) were only a lap or two down from the Mod Nitro cars like the R40….and thats on a big course…

      Once you add a tuned pipe (which your car has) there isn’t much to do except adding a bigger motor for a real speed increase ( like an OS .18)….You could change the gear ratio for a little more top end…but if that car is broken in right and tuned right…it should go every bit of 40 MPh, which is plenty fast..

      If you wanted a top end only car, the traxxas is the way to go…but that is an old design, and to be honest, the traxxas motors are crap…

      You should see if you can find somewhere to race the car on a racetrack…I think you would find the car is plenty fast in a confined area like a race course…

      If you need more help, just ask..

  • thx foer you’re help oll let you know how i turned out .

      yep..it’s a great hobby…..You should really consider racing it in some way. Even getting together with friends and racing on a parking lot with a make shift course is fun…way more fun than top speed runs, LOL…

      Heres a tip I learned with 18 years ago..

      Set up a series of cones and practice figure 8 driving….but do it at different positions like standing at different ends, in the middle (outside the racing area)….It will really help getting used to driving and your reflexes and control will improve greatly…

      Stay in touch, let us know if you go racing….
