Default changing gears for more torque

Well hunting season is almost over here in Alabama, so I was wondering what to do with the cart for the rest of the year. I have several minor improvements that I want to get done in the off season, However 1 that I am considering is changing the gears in the rear end to improve my torque and slow it down some as well. I installed new motor similar to the "Beast" and it made a vast improvement to torque also got me to about 19 or 20 mph. Speed is not what I am looking for. My question is what gear ratio would be better than the stock in it now and how hard of an install would it be?

I think the only gear option you have at this point for more torque would be the 15-1 gear, I believe you have a 12.44-1 ratio now. not sure on the install as i have never done one, but seems to be pretty staright forward.

So does that work out in simple math to be roughly a 20% increase in torque and a 20% decrease in speed?
