This just doesn't really make any sense for me from a logistical standpoint. I'd be investing time and effort into rewinding perhaps the fastestest and most high fill motor of its class, in order to get a slow, low fill motor, that is in much greater supply. It would be like buying a $600 Cromotor just to gut it and turn it into a 9 continents motor or something, and thats not even mentionimg the fact that I can gain much of the advantage provided by a higher winding count from wiring up that delta/wye switch.
For that matter, motors don't kill controllers; people kill controllers. If you had a 200a 120v Kelly controller to feed this thing with a nice steady diet of 100 volt goodness at a max of 160a there would be no problem whatsoever with "the motor" killing controllers. People aren't doing that though, they're taking 40a controllers, beefing the crap out of the traces and paralleling an ass load of low amp 100v mosfets together so it can handle 80a, then wondering why their controller "suddenly" makes a sound like putting a Jiffy-Pop tin in the microwave when they try to pull 10kw through it.
I'd really be much better served by using it to turn a little 16" bmx into a high powered mini racing bike and selling that, than fooling around with rewinding it. Hell, if I was going to bother with winding anything, I might as well do my own motor.
