    There isn't one.
    Why do you want to do this?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Two motors will give you more torque, but not much more top end.... as a matter of fact, you could actually be going slower due to all the added weight.

    What do you currently have for a...
    motor?
    ESC
    spur gear?
    pinion gear?
    tires?
    rims?
    battery?

    Once these are answered, we can point you in the direction of speed.

    EDIT:
    Also, how fast do you want to go?

    Did the KB come brushed or brushless?
    Does it have slicks for tires?
    Gearing is different on some 16ths... can you find out what you have?

    dont know what the purpose of wheelies on a kb. but its your rc so go with what you like. lipos or maybe throw in a castle combo.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    I am going to compare your KB to my Boss...

    2200 2S LiPo's in parallel
    HPI 31mm vintage tires/rims
    28/45 gearing
    ********* ESC
    stock V 4000Kv motor
    aftermarket, stiffer shocks

    in PERFECT conditions I can get it to wheelie.
    Now, the exact same everything but dirt hawgs for tires in my MERV; I can get it to wheelie no problem.

    There are a few different ways to go about this...
    fortunately, they are in stages so you can start at the top and continue down until you get what you want.

    1) 3S batteries...
    but you will probably fry the stock ESC, so

    2) A different ESC.
    I suggest something that can handle 3S all day long... 60 amps or better.

    3) Neu motor... a bit pricey, but worth it all day long.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I think they are the same as what you currently have... maybe different springs/weights, but basically the same.

    HR makes shock bodies that are aluminum and cheap... and take all stock hardware.
    or...

    I will get another member chiming in here... they have some great information too.

    Thanks Jimmie!
    What kind of budget are we talking?
    Like Jimmie said definitely a better esc and when it comes down to it it's power to weight is what your are looking for!
    With 2 motors you would need double everything and with the size of our cars we are limited to small batteries you would need 3 or more. It would end up weighing ten pounds!
    In my merv I have a mmp esc and a neu 1110 1/y .the neu is expensive but is fast and runs cool a good combination!
    You could run a lower kv neu and run it on 4 cell batteries for some real fun!

    $8 Motor Plate (7380)
    $4 Gear Cover/Hardware (7379)
    $10 Motor Mount (7360)
    $10 Rx Cover (7024x)

    This is a picture of the difference in Rx covers:

    New style (for big block) is on top.

    FYI: Big block is going to give you a higher COG... which translates to "harder to handle".
