Default Re: Roll away braking

Now I'm starting to feel guilty!
(not really... that was huge what you did mrgolf, thank you again!)

If, by chance you'd like to reinstall a regen solenoid after you get your motor back, I'll get you set up!



CCFan... hold on to that regen solenoid and resistor for a little bit!
(If you don't... I'll ban you from BGW for a week or two!)

Don't feel guilty. I do not want the regen braking, it can get you killed. On my course we have two very steep hills that are curved. About once a week even in dry weather someone will start off the hill too fast and loose control of there cart because the regen kicks in when they take the foot off the GO pedal. One wheel will lock up and they go sliding uncontrolled over the hill. Most just keep the wheels straight and go over the cart path into the grass. When it is wet they go on down to the bottom and have to be towed out.

One of those trips is all I wanted.

If the regen would hold both wheels it would be good, but because of the differential rear end it will hold one wheel and the other will turn backward.

I keep my brakes maintained good. If I start to slide I have control of my braking. I can ease up a little. Much better IMO.

No problem! you did right by me, and I'll do the same for you! ... the offer is still open!

I don't remember the regen braking being that bad on my 98!
(but, then again... I had 22" knobby Duro's on it, and when I did go down a hill, it was on asphalt! )

Mine certainly isn't on my Regen 1 - its very gradual and controlled at cruising speed. The only time its aggressive is the hill brake (release brake on a steep downhill after full-stop). I did recently drive a commercial cart (Precedent...not sure if IQ or Excel) on a mountain golf course that was programmed for aggressive braking. I hated it! It felt as dangerous as mrgolf just described. The newer carts can set the degree to which Regen braking is applied. Maybe mrgolf has forgotten how Regen feels with the solenoid and resistor in place. Without them....its aggressive!

Don't worry Don, it's not going anywhere

Mrgolf, if you do decide you want the solenoid / coil, let me know, I'll hook you up

My guess, though - is that Plum Quick has disabled Regen in their rebuild of that motor - only mrgolf will know the answer (and hopefully will share the info) when he does the install.
