There are a TON of options for you out there....but don't expect any change on your series until you swap the motor. The controller upgrade will open the door to future increases, but in itself won't change your performance. Be ready to be in it for the long haul!
Oh I do plan on changing the motor in the future. I'm going to start with the controller upgrade first.

That's not entirely correct.

A bigger speed control allows the motor to access more amperage. The motor will make additional torque with the increased amperage. There will not be a speed increase unless a lack of amperage is restricting the motor as in the case of too big a load or tire size.

If I went with the raptor motor, is it ok to run it on the stock controller before upgrading the controller? Or is that not suggested?

Phil, if you intend to get out in the mud and sand, I would NOT recommend the Raptor Motor.....its really strictly a SPEED motor, from what you describe your intended use, you are going to need something that will supply more TORQUE, than speed.

I came across a motor today known as Beast, 8 hp @1600 rpm. Is this the type of motor I should be looking at?
