Does anyone know of a nerf sized motor that can run with 40 volts going into it? I'm planning on making a seriously modified gun this summer and I've started to research some parts. I've found everything ok except motors that can run that high of a voltage. If anyone knows of a nerf sized motor that can go that up to 40 volts or if anyone knows the highest voltage motor there is out there, please tell me.

They only motors that require a big amount of voltage are brushless motors, but these don't even need that much voltage. You might need to use less..

Why do you need so much voltage? MTB rhinos give pretty close to max performance (flywheel ceiling where the wheels spin fast enough that they aren't able to transfer all their energy to the dart, for stock geometry the dart will hit around 130 fps ) from stock cage/wheels, and hellcats give max from aftermarket cages/wheels (~150 fps IIRC). They both run on ~12v.

Just as a general rule, I would suggest against using any power supply with a potential that high.  40v DC is enough to bridge damp-ish-or-at-least-not-dry-leathery-hands skin and supply quite a shock.
