Default Motor size and kv help needed

So I am building a mad beast.I'm running the toro 150a esc and at the moment the stock 3674 2400kv motor. I am budget concerned. I almost always run 4s.to my 6s packs come tomorrow. (They are 2 3s packs bought to run in my pede).any ways I do feel a little underpowered. Need a little more speed. The truck weighs in at 11.5 pounds. And im still a bit green on the eighth scale stuff. This is my first. Everything else I have is tenth. And don't have it all figured out lol. Thanks for taking the time to read. And share knowledge!

measure and find out if a 40mm motor will fit the mount if so that opens up a wide variety to choose from

It is a floating mount. (That's what I call it)as long as the mount pattern is the same as a36mm can it'll fit

i run that on my tmaxx which is a heavy truck and have geared pretty high so its a great motor. and cheap priced too! its not as long as the one in yours and you should prolly only run 4s. may end up gearing higher on yours because it is lower kv

This is what I was looking at. Just unsure. Not knocking hk but I hear they are very slow to ship. Another reason in looking at this one is I need a couple other things for the same truck and they carry it

Youre on the right track picking a 40mm diameter motor that's nice and long. I just don't like the fact that motor is a Delta (3D) wind motor. Wye winds are more efficient than Delta so they generally run a bit cooler as well.

http://www.hobbypartz.com/96m801-4074-2000kv.html would be my pick from that site and in that price range.

One of the reasons I was looking at that one is in the reviews one of the people used it in their flux xl and bragged hard on it. My truck is a savage clone. Would you feel I could possibly regear and gain speed over my 2400kv stocker.
