So let me see if I follow.

You're saying the motor is capable of much higher speeds but the weight is keeping it to just 13mph even though it's "geared" for 40mph??

A 40mph top speed is unacceptable but perhaps using a 2 speed trans would provide me the grunt I'd want off the line with a top speed more around 60mph.
