You could try running her on 8.4volts that should see a bit of a difference in speed O0

If you not happy with the motor up the voltage and see how she goes if your still not happy then it might be worth changing to a faster motor but then you have to consider changing the ESC to cope with the extra output of amps.

make it lighter by taking one of the batteries out? It only takes a min or so to replace when one set runs down.

Have you got the battery packs in series or parallel?
I've got a 24" wooden hydro with the same motor and two 6-cell packs in series and it shifts a bit.
