Neither of these options are ideal and I am mostly regretting my decision to buy a large motor without considering space, but I am learning :)
Hey cat,

I wouldn't let a early part purchase ruin or encumber your whole project. Cut your losses so to speak. 2-pole motors are rarely used, if ever, for EVs. Look for a 4-po!e. Also try a 15kw model planing to run twice frequency and reconnect winding nodes for half voltage. You'll get same power and more torque for a lot smaller motor.
