Sure a higher amperage controller will help with torque and upgrading the wires will let that power flow through the system...
I'm not sure how the Bandit will do, I think that is mainly a speed motor...

PQ web site says you will see an approx 25% increase in speed and torque from the Bandit only upgrade. Did you? Jakesnake27 is correct. If you're going to go with bigger tires, 500-700 amp controller and larger gauge cables is a must to maintain/increase torque. Check with ScottyB or other sponsors as to what they say.

Will only help with torque, not speed.
