540kv on 8s won't help..... you really need around 780kv

Be careful changing your gearing, you could melt your ESC

Try the 190x60 then and see how it goes.... Doubt it will make much of a difference...

540kv on 8s is going to be slow!!

The motor is only spinning at 15,984 rpm

I think you are wasting your time with a 540kv motor on 8s either go at least 10s or a 780kv on 8s
