Thrust and movement

Hey guys, I have a trolley with a mass of about 80kg on castors (125mm, able to handle up to 100kg), and I want to make this a propellor powered car.

What I want to know though, I have a 3.2kw Brushless motor with a KV rating of 230, along with a 19x10 prop. I'm running the whole electrics system off 24v with a maximum supply-able peak current of 480A, My ESC is rated at 100A.

How can I know whether this setup will be able to push my system or not? 3.2kw of motor seems one hell of a lot as I have built go karts and other such projects on just 500w successfully.

The trolley has to be air powered.

Cheers, Harris
