Default Older Club Car 36-48v conversion?

Got a chance to pick up an '88 CC, it's a 36v with bad batteries and no charger.

Is it worth changing to 48v? What all is involved with the upgrade?

A CC is a great platform to build on. Aluminum frame means no rust. Since there aren't practically any batteries, now is a perfect time to go 48v. Site Sponsor Carts Unlimited (member on here as ScottyB) has a kit just for this (minus the batteries and charger). There are many options. Check it out HERE

I fully recommend ScottyB and his products

I forgot to mention that before. I meant it is not included in the one particular kit and must be bought seperately

Ha!.. Yeah, I'm not surprised. That seems to be the way of things.

I'm sure this has been answered a thousand times, but my forum "search" won't work. I don't know if I need more posts first or.....

Anyways.

What speed can I expect from a stock 36v system with new batteries?

With new batteries and an upgraded controller? Would that do much?

With the 48v conversion?

For the record, my usage will be around 90% golf course, 10% campsite. I ask, because a buddy has a Yami G1 he runs on race fuel, that hauls pretty good.

Sure. Being my first cart, I should probably just take it one step at a time.

I am wanting a small (4") lift and some wheels and tires. Even with just the controller, would I be in decent shape?
