Unable to clone git hosted on gitea on fly

I’m hosting Gitea on Fly. When I try to clone a large repo, either the vm runs out of memory or fly kills the connection after 60 seconds. I’ve tried adding more ram (and cores) but fly does not scale my app. The UI and CLI both show “Deployment is running”.

Is there anything I can do? Because I really don’t want to lose access to this repo.
