and it held up for about a month until it wore out, but it's 1/10th the cost of a good one.

Only taking such motor apart with Chinese using thread locker compond is a challange and time consuming and their choice of Philips screws for cover is complete ignorance , because standard screw for such application is Allen bolts , well but they cost cents each more.
Machining new axle is only beginning of mods, reboring and replacing bearings is another mod, next replacing halls with quality ones, after that what else
China manufacturing is obssesed with cost savings?
Such modified HT/HS is not exactely cheap anymore,

There something wrong with hub motor needing cooling at even 2000W.
There is something wrong with the motor which simply needs to draw so much power, to much power to reach say 35mph comparing with other motors .
So the question should be why it needs to draw so much to produce?
