Default Castle motor problems help!

I have a traxxas rally 1/10 with a mamba max pro sct 2400 motor and ESC. It's geared with 25T pinion 50T spur, and ran by a 4 cell lipo. According to castle, I should be going 80 mph, but realistically with drag between 70-75. Problem is I'm going 60-65, which is around what I was doing with velineon. Am I doing something wrong? Please help!

Remember that the velineon has about 1000 more kv, so quite a bit higher gearing should be used.
