You didn't get a gearbox? (https://www.instructables.com/answers/How-do-i-slow-down-a-toy-car-motor-without-using-g/)
You're problem is there: not enough torque. Get some gears or a belt-pulley system.

A gearbox (technic Lego?) doesn't really need a link, I could Google something but you'd be best investigating gearboxes yourself, as you know your own design.

Oh good, you need to have the motor running reasonably hard and fast, but mechanically reduce the speed - best wishes for it. L
