Go for a high speed, high torque motor and then increase the pinion-to-axle gear ratio. Get the lowest pinion gear teeth number and the highest axle gear teeth.

This will add mechanical brakes, but reduce your top speed. Hence the higher revs in your motor.

Otherwise increase drag (rubber band over the axles, or tighter axle bearings, etc.)...but this will also involve getting more revs to combat straight-line sluggishness.

Don't add weight as this will force you to use more power and momentum will stop brakes.
