I've tested that combo in the e-Cobra, and it works great!
Only problem I have, I don't know what speeds the nitro's reach.
I drove the Ix8/2200KV with stock spur in the car, and 20 Pinion and reached a top speed of 75 kmh (measured with mylaps speedtrap).
Gearing heavier is still possible, but maybe going for the 2600KV LRP motor is also something to think about.
