Default RC8.2e tekin combo help

I have an Rc8.2e rtr. I am new to this hobby and purchased this buggy because I wanted something to rip around at a large open dirt field and parking lots. After buying the rtr I kind of wish I purchased the ft as the build would have been enjoyable. Now I am slowly upgrading to fulfill that experience as well as make an awesome buggy. So after driving for a few weeks I would really like some more speed. I think I would be very happy with a setup around 60mph. I tried finding the information needed to make this happen however I see that most people who purchased this buggy take it to a track and therefore don't want that kind of speed. I like the idea of a 1400kv setup on 6s as it is efficient. Plus the increase in runtime is a plus. My goal would be to obtain the speed but with the most efficient setup possible. So is there a low kv setup running 6s that's right for my driving? Thanks.

I have read of setups running 1400kv 6s can someone tell me the top speed they are reaching with that setup? I would like to be around 60mph will that setup get me there? If not how about a 1550kv on 6s. Thanks.

I was really hoping to get a reply by now but I have become impatient. I ordered the tekin 1400kv combo and also a 1900kv. I'm sure I will enjoy one of the two setups. If not at the least I will have my answer.

If I entered the data correctly and the program is accurate it looks like that 1900kv should get me to 60 with no problem on 6s. I don't know how efficient that setup will be though. Thanks for the link really appreciate it.

I'm running a XB9E in 1350kv 6s, a JQ in 1400kv 6S and a Durango in 1400kv 6S at the moment and the speed is equivalent to a 2100kv 4S setup with much better efficiency of course being high voltage. I can't help you for the top speed as I use these buggies for racing purposes only but it's plenty fast enough. A 1550kv motor in 6S would still be efficient and even faster, but I wouldn't go higher in kv

Just be careful I blew the rotor apart on my 1900kv t8 buggy motor on 6s. I would consider a castle mmm with 2200kv motor if you are just bashing. It will take abuse. But nothing beats the smooth sensored ride of a Tekin system.
