I wonder if you could make the motor turn faster by repainting the inside
cover with less segments.

I fear not. If the system is indeed using those painted segments to
commutate the motor, then messing with them would result in the motor
"thinking" it was in a different position than it was in. The
relationship between the magnetic flux of the magnets and the pole
pieces would no longer be maintained, and the motor would become
erratic or stop.
Unfortunately no. I did not have to disassemble it completely, so
that's all I got.
Thanks sooo much Bill! This is a fine piece of work!
