Default Motor help please

I just got my 91 Marathon running with a Curtis 400a controller, 36v, f/r contactor, 1/0 cables threw out. I got a good deal on a new GE D295 motor to replace my stock 2hp 2800 rpm motor. I like the speed I am getting out of this motor 23mph but the torque has suffered. I can get a AMD A95-4005a but was wondering if it would help my torque and not totally kill my speed. Just looking for around 17-18 mph. Trying to keep this on a budget as much as possable so i can finish the rest of my build. Thx!!

You can have the orignal motor done by PQ and it should do what u want. About 18MPH on level ground but should put some torque back under it.

Glad to see those scuff plates go to good use. The cart looks great.

Thanks man. Slowly but surely it's getting there. Scuff plates turned out good with a little bumper paint.

How old is your batterys? I'd dump another 12 volts too it and you will see big increase in torque

^^^^^^ what he said, so they say 33% increase in torque should make up for your loss

I was thinking about doing a 24v boost set up. That way I won't have to change my controller and charger out and will have the extra when needed. I have everything I need to do the boost but the diodes and am not sure what diodes I need. Anyone know what diodes are needed?
