Go through some of the old posts on this forum. There is a ton of information of what works and what doesn't. Yukon Don

The two main "parts" you can get to improve the Villioan performance are props and a water cooling system. You can also get new motors, ESC, and servo.

I am currently running with the following modifications, all of which I couldn't live without anymore:
1. Traxxas water cooling (helps more than you think it does)
2. Octura propellers (polishing helps them look a lot better and they almost double the speed of the boat)
3. Team Orion Orbital 2 Pro-BB 13 turn motors (they spin so fast they hurt to listen to (two of them is even better))
4. RCHydros SC3-LP ESC (best ESC on the market, excellent customer service, very reliable)

I haven't even put mine in the water yet, still waiting for Traxxas to deliver the Whip that was missing from the box.
I have already replaced the radio with a Novak XXL 75MHz FM, Installed the E-Maxx Rooster Combo dual speed controllers, installed 17 turn Trinity Motors.
I have a water cooling kit on order at the LHS which I'll modify to cool the Roosters as well.
I don't want my Villian to end up like my Blast (went up in flames during the first run).
