Haven't tried it, no. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to do with this motor as some others. We don't have the external (through the case) field terminals. Ours are soldered internally in series with the armature.

On top of that, I'm less interested in top speed as acceleration. The highest speed limit of any road the car uses is 50 km/h (30 mph).

Have you tried it?
