Default New D&D Torque Motor (4:1) - Not Seeing 40% Torque

I have a 2006 EZGO TXT Series cart with the 4ga upgrade and now a new D&D Electric Motor (4:1 - described as 40% more torque with stock controller and 36v). My neighborhood is full of hills and we use the cart to take our kids to the bus stop and goof off around our neighborhood.

After adding the motor, I was expecting to see a little more power and speed going up our hills than I am actually seeing. Am I expecting too much from a golf cart? Do I need to continue down the path adding a 500amp controller? What is 40% more torque suppose to deliver if not pull up a hill at higher speed than 2-3 mph.
