Interesting stuff,

I liked the note about not being able to do this on a THINK or GEM car.

I noticed you are using an Alltrax controller and a 48V system, right?

Is there any reason why field weakening couldn't be done on the Forkenswift or my ElectroMetro?

The main thing would just be having 4 power posts instead of 2 on the motor to be able to easily wire it up?
