I think you should run to the LHS and pick up a better speedo.

I'd go with the suggestion to upgrade the ESC and drop in a decent motor.

I have a HH handwound 45T on my Tundra + MFC-02 ESC. Torque is ok BUT the stock motor runs even faster. 45T might be ok with a nice ESC or a 35T, if possible a 7T Cobalt Puller, for sure.
