As stock the Su26 and the new 'XP' version have brushed motors with a reduction gearbox. Brushless conversion, as noted above, requires a new speed controller and if you want a serious gain in performance then you need to up the voltage by going to a two cell battery. The easiest way to do it is buy the kit off Dan.
Give it a go as standard first.. plenty of fun to be had with the standard motor.
