I'd suggest that the JPad conc limit should be somewhere between 1300 and 1400 horizontal speed (I don't think this is unreasonable given without the limits you can reach 1600),
The problem with a high jump pad + conc speed cap is that it doesn't address the following two problems:

There might be some magic value that makes the choice between using the conc + jump pad for consistency vs. using just a conc for speed interesting/deep, but I'm skeptical (consistency is a pretty nice thing to have). We'd also have to have separate caps for medics and scouts to address the second issue.

Vertical speed didn't change.
