I was actually just thinking of some cream trimwork on it :) progress has been slow the last couple of weeks as it is planting season here, so more work in the fields and less time at the bench, but will be back at it soon :D

Well, after that, I HAD to watch Jeremy Clarkson with "Brutus," which has a 48 liter bomber engine.

I concur with your thoughts on the possibility of connecting the batteries up incorrectly (see my previous comments). That said, IMO Matt doesn't state the batteries were wired in series, but that maybe exactly what he was suggesting.
"the airwire board (first generation) and a series of two battery packs. Each pack is 4-18650 3.4v batteries."
FWIW: I'd suggest an Accucraft C21 with two 18650 2200mAh or so batteries wired in series would provide great voltage 28.8v, yet it would be rather anemic from a run time and or duration perspective I believe. And it makes sense as you suggest; the engine would run slower IF two batteries were previously wired in series with 14.4V batteries @ 28.8V verse operating with a single 14.4V battery at halve the voltage.
14.4V 4S2P (5200-5600mAh) Li-Ions batteries are VERY common in todays battery powered G scale train-world. Albeit IMO a better less expensive solution garnering like performance is two separ... less

I have to figure out how many finished boards I can get from each "blank" and that has to take into account the 1/16th inch of wood that is turned into sawdust with each pass. That way I can figure out how many blanks I need (boards ripped to the larger thickness), plus 10% for "oopses". I always try and cut more then I need, and what I don't use goes into some trays I built. Then, when I need one of a certain board, for some project, I usually have one in my overages trays. less
