Ok leftie let me be more clear:

It doesn't. The throttling back only happens if things overheat. I'm not throttling back the inverter. The inverter itself would throttle back power, ignoring higher torque commands if the motor or the inverter gets too hot.
The VCM, vehicle controller, is the one taking in the throttle position and speed and sending out a torque command to the inverter. The idea is to intercept the torque command message from the VCM, change it to a higher value, then send it on to the inverter.
