I would start with a battery amp setting of 480 (3C) and a minimum battery voltage of 126 volts (2.8 vpc.) I would put the low voltage dash lamp at 135 volts so you can see if you go under 3 volts per cell average. I would set the max motor current no higher than 600 amps initially. Now I wouldn't start out of the garage door by planting your right foot in it, but I like to start with settings that are reasonable to leave in place and inside of the manufacturers specs.

You can easily turn things up later if you want. The Datsun had settings of 5C battery amps and the minimum voltage set at 2.6 vpc. I don't like to play nice though.
