Cables probably. If they're swelled from the corrosion then replacing them should help you a lot.

The regen solenoid on these can stick causing them to go slow, but usually MUCH slower than you described.

That's what I was thinking. They're covered in blue corrosion and stiff. One of them was corroded about 6" up the cable from the connection and when I bent the cable I could feel the corrosion breaking up in cable.

Thanks for the suggestion my man!

Well done on getting it up & running - there's a surprising amount of little things that can prevent that from happening, so you've cleared that one big hurdle. There is a distinct pedal-to-actually-going delay in my Regen 1 - its definitely designed to gradually accelerate. No wheel spinning takeoff with these. So that may be what you're experiencing.

On the speed side - healthy cables are important (even more so for climbing hills rather than speed). Also you've got new batteries which really don't hit their stride until about 20 cycles or so. All that considered; you should be at least 12mph so there is "something" to discover on that front. Well done so far!

Thanks Joe! I understand the pedal delay however it seems like it's a little more sluggish than it should be. It does feel like it would struggle up a hill but It would make it. I'm gonna change all of the battery cables including the ones to the motor and go from there. I feel like that's gonna help a lot because pretty much all of the cables are suffering from a good bit of corrosion.

Also a couple of the nuts that are on the terminal posts are pretty sad looking and in need of being replaced. What size are the posts? 5/16"?

Alright. Thank you sir. Luckily I have access to a nut bin for free so I should be ok for now.
