Default Motor question

I tried installing a 36v moyor in my 48 volt club car. The speed was excellent 26mph but the tourque sucked.Like wouldnt climb a 10% hill . It took a few seconds to get up to speed as well around 3 seconds so speed wise it was excellent.
The part number n the motor is
GE.
5bc58jbs6334
3000 rpm.
3.5hp.

Like I said speed is outatanding but torque was terrible.

must be a stock moter cause thats whats in my 93 36v cc

the added voltage causes the 36 Volt motor to turn faster
but the torque is not as good probably need to upgrade controller

ps ... my stock 36v club car goes 21mph

Is this a high speed motor I wonder?

All other posts completely contridict what I an seeing.
Seems that a stock 36 volt resistor cart couldnt supply as much current as a 300 amp 48v altrax controller.

If its a high speed motor I can see how you would need a lot more current to gain some torque with a high speed motor.

Ok. Finally had time to go look at the motor and cart closer.

It is a GE D377 motor.
Which I can't really seem to find out much about. I have asked several people and done a lot of searching and cant really find out if I can maintain the stock torque and keep this motor.
I have 2 gauge cables, have a 400amp solenoid on order, and am trying to decide which controller to get. 400 or 500 amp.
I don't care about going all that fast 16-20 is fast enough, I am more concerned with torque.
Anyone have any input on this D377 motor?

Yeah, I saw that.
I just wonder if that motor will ever give me the torque I need for hills around here.
