Default Mr. Ed's Yeti Restoration project

Been out of the Hobby for a couple years now, wanted something different to spark my interest again. Traded my much loved
Land Cruiser for this Yeti. I have a few local friends with slashes and stampedes and wanted something to run with them and yet still be able to crawl too. Seems like a good platform to use. So some suggestions and ideas would help out because my Nobbiery is back in full effect. Hell I had to search how to post pics again

I'm ignorant when it comes to brushless, never had or used. So help in that department would be great.

Here's what I have to work with

I run 3cell lipos, but this thing was surprising slow. It has a16 tooth pinion gear and a stock spur. Is that axial motor just slow? Should I toss a traxxas velienum ( or however you spell it) set up?

I know the crawling will be substandard until I get a sensored esc or switch to brushed

Is there a brushed motor that will push this hog?

Plans...make it fast, yet still crawler friendly-ish

Switch back to brushed or upgrade to better esc

Bug body, possible a fj-40 body, haven't decided

Yes the easy answer is mamba max and red motor everyone raves about, but that's big bucks so I doubt that will happen

I'm running a Holmes Hobbies Puller Pro XL 3500kv with a Trailmaster BLE ESC and love em. I'm running 20/64 on 3s (I'm still new to RC and not sure if I should be running that gearing on 3s) but it hasn't exploded yet. Fast as all hell though! smokes my co-worker who's running stock RTR on 2s.
