the shunt slows the motor down .... and limits the rpm

the 4 field thou would produce more torque on start up and have lots of rpm .. jsut cant hit it as long

as for trying a 4 field motor at high volts go ahead ... nothing is quaranteed with a warranty is it?

my club members swear thou on prestolite oldschool plus motors...

Shunts only work at 12 or maybe 24 volts.....and dont cut them out,at higher voltages the shunt balance out the motor...keeping a full north to south magnetic feild

4 feild motors have more torque but they dont spin faster...they spin slower becuase of the nsns feilding as where a 3 flield is nsn w/shunt allow infinite battery to rpm increases
