I wish a GOOD walkthrough of evaluating and modifying a motor DIY would be made, I have a little 5hp 6 3/4" motor designed for 48v. I have been told repeatedly it dies at 96v as people have killed it at 96v.

Trouble is I do not know how the people made it fail, was it RPMs? Was it heat? Never can find out.

Anyway do most of the guys in the local club advance the brushes at HV?
