I have a vector sr48 brushless boat that is great, goes a little less than 30mph. I want to upgrade it to make it go faster. I found a motor to use but am not sure how much of an upgrade it would be.

I wanna get this motor in 2800kv. This next link is the motor it comes with.

Can anyone tell me if this is a large upgrade or a minor one? I will obviously be upgrading the esc to a 60amp from the stock 20amp as well. Anyone ever upgraded one of these boats and have suggestions or tips? Thanks!

That motor you listed will not be a upgrade it will be a weight that boar down grade.. so go from a 2600 kv to a 1500kv not gonna be faster unless you add a cell or 2. then you will have to change prop...anyway good luck....

I wasn't going to get the 1500kv but the 2800kv motor. Goimg from a 2600 to a 2800kv isnt much of an upgrade but the motor size is much bigger.

Ok makes alittle more sense now. but I think your still gonna be slower in the end due to added weight.might stay with same style motor as oem... .id go with a 3500kv motor if you want more speed.
