Hmm! Well they sell an optional 25T pinion for it BUT I'd question whether the tires could cope. Ballooning at 60+ is huge at 80? Should one blow out you've a $700 car (plus cost of batteries) weighing about 16lbs going through the air out of control if it hits you it will break bones, if it hits your own auto it will cause major damage to both. I did the stock speed test to see how quick it could go. I wouldnt make it go faster - the places you can run it at max stock speed anyway are few and far between. I top speed test a lot of cars on my youtube channel. The Typhon is the only one I feel safe to modify! To give you some idea 60mph is 88Ft per second 80 mph is 117ft per second. If anything goes wrong you've less than a second to react - or face a 16lb missile. Not saying I don't love speed tests as I clearly do, but this is the one car I wouldnt want to run fasterIs it possible to get 80 or 90 mph with a simple gear change ?
