just a question of "potential" if the controller (dc500/1000amp) was driving a
WarP11HV (inter-poled neutral timing dc motor) with a
controller controlled reverse contacter and some
software tweeking
could this setup do regenerative breaking (more for the breaking with no mechanical wearing parts then for power).

My thought with very limited knowledge thinks the inter-poles will allow the motor to do reverse with no commutator sparks etc, if its controller controlled it can be done right (kill power, energies reverse contactor apply desired power level to get regen/breaking).

Setting up the logistics of getting the hardware controls (break pedel/controller/break master cylinder/reverse contactor) might require another control board if the controller cant handle it natively.
