@SamuelS not really, your acceleration and speed is based on your controller, motor and battery combination. Your motor will probably accept a bit more so that’s fine but your limit is your battery BMS limit. Your amp draw is what gives you your acceleration, if you can up your battery current as well as change your controller you can certainly squeeze some more out of it.

@samuels parallel linking another battery will certainly give you extra capacity and double your amps but your stock controller will only draw what it is already. Be careful when connecting two batteries in parallel. Have a read up about it first.
I have been using a sabvoton motor controller which seems really good so far and they can be easily found on AliExpress. they are Bluetooth programmable so there’s a tone of settings you can play with although it’s not 100% plug and play. You may need a little rewiring.
