The problem is a 3.5t can't handle 3 cell, so once your at the peak of speed that's pretty much it. You can only go as fast as the rotor will allow before coming apart.

That's the fastest motor I've got at the moment.

The plan is to run it on 4s eventually, I'll have to do some research on a lower kv motor that can handle 4s and a suitable esc.

Also found this article that explains a lot.

I got some electronics in the car, a bit of a tight fit and rats nest but not going to be too fussy.
