It could go faster but you lose the torque. The torque you need to climb up hills and/or push you over non flat terrain and the motor trying to spin but not spinning can burn your motor out. Ideally, you don't want that high of a KV unless you don't mind burning out motors.
Ideally the minimal parts that you would need is the following:
Standard Longboard Setup -
Ideally ABEC wheels for the bigger size allows for more clearance.
ESC Speed Controller -
Haven't found any for $25 IMO. Looking at least $50-60. You want a car ESC.
Lipo Batteries -
From HobbyKing 6S 5000mah and/or (2) 3S 5000mah. Or 8S if you plan on going 8S.
50mm or 63mm. Turnigy SK3, NTM 50mm, Tacon Big Foot about $50-80.
RC Controller GT2b, Quantum Pistol Grip about $20-25
Motor Mount for Trucks -
$100-150 depends. Cheaper if you make your own.
Drive Train Setup -
You need a motor pulley, belt, drive wheel pulley. $40-100 depends.
Motor Mount/Drive Train can be usually found on kits. $225 I offer the entire single mechanical kit. Trucks, Welded Motor Mount, Drive Train Setup, 83mm Wheels, Bearings, Spacers.
