Try switching the throttle switch to forward or if it is forward try switching it to reverse.

Perhaps the motor is wired backwards.
Appears to be a brushed motor, only 2 wires going to the motor right?

If so try switching the 2 wires.

If it runs much slower this way, well that wasn't the answer, due to motor timing. But a little run to test it won't hurt anything.
