What plane are we talking about? a fast prop may not always be the solution.
sometimes you need sufficient disk area to make thrust, depends on the plane's drag, fuselage and wing shape

Also, you cannot just add pitch to go fast. a 9 pitch prop will be too much for that engine to perform properly. Your diameter would have to go down to like 8". You just do not have the right equipment to go fast. Sorry.

evo engines are not fast no matter what you do, they are very reliable but simply not fast. a 10x7 is the prop fot that engine, if you drop down to a 9 you won't get enough revs to get a significant increase in performance.
