It would be wise to start from the beginning, Are you fully charging the batteries you have?

Yes you can get maintenance free batteries besides lithium. I would if I had the coin. The only thing I don't like about my buggy is the battery maintenance and it dripping regularly.

Wow. More details?

Just to give you a simple answer to your question... You could potentially lose some speed due to the extra weight of two more batteries which is around 120 lbs. specifically I lost 1 mph overall on my build but I gained 32% more range. Now to offset that you could change controllers, motors, tires/wheels... The list goes on but the simplest method to get more range is add battery capacity and the simplist way to add capacity is more lead.
