    small spur + big pinion + big battery = go fast You may also want to consider tires that are less prone to ballooning.

    Garmin makes a few diff models of GPS that are small. I have a older Trex GPS that i use velcro to stick on the upper chassis. Its a lil heavy buts thats ok i feel it helps keep the Rusty on the ground at high speeds. Also i think there are some apps that track speeds and and distance.

    if you have a iphone4 hook up the telemetry sensors and get a TQi controller if you dont already have one. The you can see speed, battery volts and motor temps.

    With the vxl system, 31/76 gearing is really as high as you should push it. Maybe 33/76. JConcepts G-Loc tires would be a great choice. That'll get you into the 70mph range if you use a good 3S Lipo battery.

    Move the shocks out all the way on the a-arms, put in some heavier shock oil, maybe add a little weight up front under the shock tower, and cut some holes in the body for ventilation and airflow/aerodynamics. You'll be going super-fast in no time. 70mph in an RC car is flat-out moving.

    I have a garmin nuvi that works well. Just strap it down!

    Start with 25/83 gearing and go up from there. That should get you well into the 40's mph on 3s.
