Default Re: SPEED UPDATE; 97 CC VGlide 36/48 conversion

hey oxford did a complete charge give you any more speed?? My solinoid just burned up but still had 36 v solinoid. and to BRS 64 volts would be another 30.72% increase on top of the 33% from 36 to 48 v. Some one I know is running 72 volts and it runs 43+ mph!!!! a little too scary for me but that thing hauls a@@. he been runing on 72v almost a year. I read somewhere some people around 100 volts

gsf,

So far all I changed was the batteries and wire (and charger of course).

My next step is the EMP upgrade and I'm toying with the 2-speed mod, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra $75.

I cant give an honest answer to this one...while I was waiting for the battery charger to turn off, I decided to fill the tires up to prope pressure, which were all down @10 PSI so I dont know if the full charge helped the speed.

...AND YES THE THING WILL CHIRP THE TIRES WHEN MASHING THE "GO" PEDAL FROM A DEAD STOP

4 guage copper lugs with a 5/16 hole. You can get them at hardware stores or online.

Please correct me if I'm wrong(I know you will), but I have a potbox instead of a V-glide...why 4g cables here...I' don't get it. I have 4g for all batt. and controller, f/r, obc., but why at the V-glide? Am I missing something?

BRS, there are 2 styles of v-glides. 1 Resistor type (which he has) and the other style is a pot box. It has a series of resistors inside the Vglide switch. They both are commonly called "v-glides".......

Roady, dumb it down for me...
Are the resistors negating the need for thicker wires...I'm very confused or just dumb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lemme break it down barney style. A resistor type v-glide switch....has terminals to bolt cables too. It is similar to an ezgo speed board only in function. It has contacts like an ezgo resistor speed board. A pot type v-glide has a series of small resistors, like you find at radio shack, the small ones. Cables do not bolt to it like the resistor type v-glide. It is used for electronic speed controllers.
