As I mentioned, this thing uses a MY68 100W 24V 2300RPM motor. Could any of you dc motor experts out there tell me if I can over-volt this motor?

Also, Ben told me that his motorcycle had the same acceleration, but lower top speed, when he dropped the voltage and greater acceleration when he upped the amps. Would i get better starting push from this if i paralleled the batteries? I assume i'd get way better system performance if i added a second pack in parallel. Oi... i need to do some current testing.
