That controller doesn't look too bad.

I havent' heard a ton about Kelly controllers yet, but I haven't heard anything bad about them either.

I suppose the rule of thumb is to get as many amps and highest volts you can afford.

I think that controller would suffice for you.

Doubling up motors and controllers would get complicated and expensive.

Jim Husted of Hi-Torque Electric has been building some "Siamese" motors with great success, but that's kinda a wacky drag racing thing.
