Default some people put 48v to old resistor carts with no problems, or is it that a bad idea?

I have a 82 club car with the multiple solenoid setup. Other than a couple small problems it looks and runs pretty good.

I just did a little research on them, and see that some people put 48v to them and only change the charger.

Is that a dumb idea, or does it work? The charger is having problems anyway. And I just put SAMs club batteries in it today. So I still have time to exchange them out.

What would I gain? Extra speed and torque?

Or will the extra voltage too many cause problems to be worth it?

it will burn out eventually
you would need charger, plug, and batteries
all that for maybe 5 mph more
IMHO not worth it

If you need a charger anyway I'd buy two more 6v batteries and a 48v charger for sure. Your resistors will be fine for a while, longer if you run wide open more than slow driving. You would either need a 48v solenoid or wire your activation circuit at the original 36v. This sets you up for a controller conversion down the road when you can afford it. IMO best upgrade you can do for the money..
