You can go at this a few different ways...

1. The stock motor is already pretty "hot". If you opt to go with a 7.4v Lipo pack instead (check the Compatibility List thread for lipo options), that's one way to upgrade

2. Atomic released a new motor for the Micro-T called the "Atomic BB". Supposedly the motor is about equivalent to the stock, except is uses Ball Bearings.

3. Go Brushless. This is the most extreme option as you'd have to swap in all your own electronics (ESC, Receiver, Servo) but there's been quite a few people who've gone this route and enjoyed the project.

If you're not looking to get too extreme, too quickly...I've recommend option #1 and check out the new offering coming soon from Team Losi directly (a Lipo and charger package).

I picked up the team losi li-po battery an charger combo
and it's pretty damn sweet, I put the largest pinion gear
on and it'll still do wheelies when the charge is fresh.
