not sure about top speed on a flat, more testing
is needed. Also unknown is how long this motor
will last at that speed, it being a "24 volt"
Additional FeaturesI designed and made my own controller, and it uses a Bluetooth serial
controller to pre-charge and control contactors, as well as Coulomb-
counting and talking to the BMS
