Take a look a the www.4qd.co.uk website, it really isn't worth trying to build your own.

It may not even be necessary - on our electric racing car we used a simple on off button operating the motor via a relay - This works fine with the operator able to adjust speed by blipping the button

As a passing thought your motor may well draw 20+ amps and as much as 70 amps on start up from stationary so any system has to be able to cope with these currents.
