    battery issue... try getting a good 2-3 cell lipo batt if your esc will allow it.... a 3000 nimh is nothing to the batts that a 12t brushless is made to run from. As you squeeze the throttle it draws power from batt, if your batt sucks and is low power there is nothing there to draw from thus....no acceleration or punch

    getting a new battery would help a lot. your car cant handle a 3s. but i would look into a 2s or a 5000mah+ nimh. you can do both for a pretty low price now. you can get a brushless setup for around $100 and then a lipo battery and charger for around $70-80, but you need the new battery.

    it really depends how much you want to spend....
    you would need to get traxxas plugs for the battery and charger
