Default GEM car motor in Club Car?

Hey guys, I did search and did not find anything related to my question. I have a GEM car that is torn apart and used a lot of the electronics to repair another. I will eventually be putting a gas sport bike motor in it, but was wondering if I could use the electric motor from it in my club car, if so, would it be any faster or not worth the swap? I know the best route would be to order a better motor, but I live in Cancun Mexico, and it is very difficult to mail order stuff here, basically have to order to a friend in the States and have them bring things when they come. Thanks

I am new to electric motors, total gear head when it comes to gas and diesel cars and trucks, what makes one electric motor stronger and faster than another, I am guessing something to do with the wind of the copper? I have a few extra club cars in great shape, missing batteries and chargers only. Wondering if I could take one of the electric motors out of them to a shop here and have them rebuild it to make it faster/stronger? I am probably going to have to break down and order a lift and wheels and mods and have someone bring them down, just dont want to wait 6 months till my buddy brings his boat.

you are correct in assuming that the windings affect speed. there are other variables between motors of different design, size, lamination thickness, brush size, timing, etc... but apples to apples, a motor with less turns of copper will spin faster than the same motor with more turns. this increase in speed comes at the cost of a increase in current consumption (Amps) and a apparent decrease in torque.

a easy way to visualize this is to think of it as changing gear ratios. make any sense?
