Default 1991 club car ds build help?

I have just been given a 1991 Club Car Ds resistor cart with a VGlide. i am new to this style cart (series cart)as my previous build was a sepex regen cart. i want to put a moderate lift and tires on this cart and curious as to how the stock setup will handle this. If upgrades are needed do you go with a solid state conversion?

If any diameter tire taller than stock is used, the V-glide carts tend to have issues with the V-glide melting. A solid state conversion is generally the way folks go if they are going to upgrade a V-glide cart with larger tires. Beware it gets expensive kind of quickly.

One thing I'll add right now since you have to convert, go 48 volt if you have to buy batteries!!! The stock 36 volt motor runs awesome on 48 volts, and it's just an all around better setup. It'll cost slightly more overall now, but it's cheaper to do it the first time than to convert to 48 volt later, and worth it.

I know. id love to do it but I then I'm also gonna have to have a new charger as well. Id really like to get the solid state conversion done and hope that it i can get a solid 15 mph out of it and take hills well.

You may not get 15 by just doing the SS conversion. Close, but probably no cigar.

Now, going 48v on the 36v motor will get you at least 15 EASILY
