Got ya.....Not trying to be a PITA but your numbers don't work out quite right. Why are you thinking you would get 36v 20a? That's only 720w and if you have a stock Currie controller (24v 35a) the stock controller would supply 840w. I'm thinking your stock controller running 36v would deliver a full 35a for 1260w. Otherwise, your taking a step backward. Of course all these numbers depend on the battery being able to support the load. And those 10ah lead packs just don't get it done so you kind of "get what you get" with them.
The nice thing about jumping to 48v is you can use the stock battery mounting for 2 packs. Of course the stock controller would need to be replaced. And of course you would need to monitor the motor's heat.
