Default 86 club cart lift

I'm want to lift my club cart ds 86 36v to either 3 in or 6 inch spindle, but people are saying not to do it because I have resistor coils on it and they have problems with burning up. Should I lift it or just a nice set of tires and rims

I think they mean if you put a really tall tire on it. Maybe then it causes problems? These cart are kind of slow to start with, so straining the system might not be the best idea.

I have a similar one to what you're working on. No lift, but have some 12" wheels and street tires coming for mine. I don't expect any problems, since they wont be much taller than stock, but I may be wrong.

I'm sure someone else will chime in on this and get you squared away.

Ill put it to you this way, if you wanted it lifted with big tires you might as well go ahead and do it. you don't wanna walk out to the garage, look at it and be disappointed. you wont be the first guy to lift one and im sure there is aftermarket support for any direction you choose to go with it

Sure go ahead and lift it, but you will need to upgrade it to solid state at some point. These old resistor system are good for stock tires and that's about it...

I think that is more for the resistor carts that used a Vglide to handle the high current.

Those old 5 solenoid carts were much better a handling the high current, the main issue is not to spend too much time at partial throttle where there would be stress at the resistor coils.

The solid state setup would definitely be better for partial throttle driving with big tires.
