My guess would be it's just too big of a straight for the motor. If the gearing and motor is great for 90% of the track, but lags on the one straight, don't worry about it. No point in gearing or tuing to max out at the end of the straight if you have no oomph for the twisty bits!

The COG is important in off-road to a point. You always want to keep it low to prevent body roll, but ground clearance is more important for bumps and rough landings! Generally, there isn't a lot you can do except keep electronics on the deck and adjust the ride height, but again, that's usually as HIGH as you can get away with, not as low
