How to set max input voltage to over 57 volts?

My battery is 57.82V on a max charge. I've tried to edit the max voltage settings but it won't allow me to go over 57V. If it's physically impossible for a VESC to run on over 57V then I understand, but if not then I feel like users should be able to override this safety feature (maybe with a warning message).

Is there any way to circumvent this? Would I have to edit a new version of firmware myself or something?

Which VESC do you have?

If it's a version that's rated to 60V regardless of what you set you've got almost no headroom for voltage spikes and will likely kill the VESC extremely quickly.
