criticize my notions of a 6s 800 watt Teksumo

I have been bitten by the speed bug and I was wanting to upgrade my Teksumo to fly a little faster. I have already modified it to be super rigid.

I already have a 6s 40 amp speed controller and some 3s 1000mah batteries laying around, so I was thinking that all that was needed to finish the equation was a motor somewhere in the ballpark of 1200 kv and 700 watts or so to have a 6s setup that would spin the prop at 27000 rpms.

1) eprop calc won't even take a guess at what prop I need. If I want to fly at a max of 35 amps what prop should I get?
2) would this be a good motor? Turnigy D3542/5 1250KV: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ner_Motor.html
3) is Teksumo an airframe that will fly fast, I'm shooting for 115 mph or so.

update: 6s 800 watt Teksumo hits the point of diminishing returns pretty fast. Perhaps a nice smooth laminate would help, but I am back on the ol 300 watt 3s setup and liking it better.
