Hi Dave,
How can you link 2 together make 72 v ?
I would say with caution. I'm not too sure if you are having fun or placing a serious question. But if you are going to run a C5 motor at 72V then take care, you can expect melted motor cables and brush holders, even a welded relay. Anyway, av phun. Karl.
