PROS:
 
if you have electronic skills this mod is almost free
 
you wont loose your board for days
 
CONS:
 
now if you do this pinokio will void your warranty and if you mess up the board, you will need to buy a 
 
new one so this mod is up to you 
 
will drain batts faster
 
 
 
you need to remove the voltage regulator chip 
 
use a shop vac to remove the weld
 
then use a wire to bridge it 
 
this will allow the full batt voltage to the motor

I'd advise against this, you're basically changing the amount of voltage the circuit receives. The purpose of a regulator isn't just to drop the voltage down from 18v it also serves to prevent any spikes and it limits current draw. This allows consistent feeding of balls by ensuring constant motor speed. By removing that regulator you're drastically shortening the life of your motors and board. 
I would assume that a PBoard uses different components

I bought an Ion.... in hindsight it was a bit of an Impulse buy
