I've got an account at Allied Electronics in Canada - they have these in stock. AND - they're gonna have one less in stock tomorrow!

Good deal, order a few 1n4007 diodes if you don't have any, you should use one accross the relay coil.

OK, Sergio - those puppies are on order (I actually ordered two relays, because they're cheap and in case I break a mounting lug or something dumb).

Thanks for reminding me about adding a flyback diode. I generally have used relays on AC, or very low voltage DC and hadn't really thought about the voltage spike potential. I'm going to use an SAE connector when I break the green sensor wire so I can "return the cart to normal" by plugging a shorted one into it (if it ever came down to that).

OK a while back I put a bandit motor on my 99 regen 2 cart. I took the 2nd solenoid off to do away with regen braking unhooked the speed sensor to allow full speed of the bandit motor upgrade.

That done away with the roll away braking. I live in eastern Ky and we have hills on every course I know of. For that reason I wanted the roll away braking to work. If I hooked the speed sensor up it would work, but that would limit the top speed to something like 16 mph. And the dynamic braking would give you whip lash if you let up off the go pedal while going very fast. I looked into using a seat switch to disable the speed sensor while on the cart, but I hated to splice into the wiring on the sensor.

They don't make a high speed magnet for the regen 2 motor. Soooo, I did.
I filed and sanded on it to get things to work the way I wanted. Now the cart will roll or drive as fast as the motor will take it, you can take your foot off the go pedal and it will just coast to a stop. If you are stopped and release the brake the roll away braking will hold the cart back although it does it with a pulsing action.

I'm hoping this photo will post. It is not good photo but you can see what I did.

I remember your kiss-the-windshield dynamic braking challenge with the solenoid removed. That's a clever solution. I'm planning to go the electronic route using a n/c relay, diode & Sergio-identified wires to defeat dynamic braking when WOT only. Mine still has the 2nd relay so my nose is not at risk.

Trouble is other than my spring cosmetic touchups I'm working & golfing too much and haven't made the time. I want to do it slowly & properly. Not just dangle a relay from wires. It'll be done before end of golf season somehow.

The magnet was very easy to get to. No jacking or removing body covers. I just laid down and reached under with a 1/4 in wrench to remove the cover off the magnet, Allen wrench took the magnet out to work on it. I did put the cart in tow just in case.
