FWIW run the warp like a chevy 350, sweet spot is around 3500 rpm redline is 5000 because the armature tends to unwind at the commutator throwing stuff everywhere. they will turn faster but need better balancing, comm banding, forced cooling and wont make as much HP due to back EMF making the applied voltage higher than what the gaps in the comm will tolerate, AKA ZORCH. so you advance the brushes about 7-10 degrees, but that buggers up reversing and any regen you might hope to get, not that they regen for poop.

i also advocate recycled Volt packs bullet proof as can be, best bang for the buck.
