With my governed setups, I never try to set the HS much more than about 70% of the theoretical speed at 3.7v per cell, otherwise the HS will drop towards the end of the battery, under load. So on a 500 on 6s with a 1600kv motor and a 13t pinion the max governed HS would only be about 2000, which is on the low side. Using 14t would up that to about HS2200, which is still fairly mild on a 500.
