You've wired the motor in its bipolar serial configuration. You will get better performance if you wire the motor half-coil which is:

Black to A

Yellow to A-

Red to B

White to B-

Half-coil gives you 70% of the torque of a motor wired bipolar serial, but it gives much better speed. Because of the limitations of the gearbox, wiring the motor half-coil will still give the motors all the torque that the gearbox can handle. So, wiring the motor half-coil gives you all the advantages and none of the disadvantages.
