Default Resistor to Solid State 36V conversion ?

I'm trying to make my pit cart faster but Ive made a mistake ordering parts. I ordered a G.E. D392 high speed motor, H.D. F&R switch, H.D. Solenoid And heavy gauge wires, but didn't realize my cart being resistor mattered to the new motor. I am buying a Solid State 700 amp controller. The question is, can anyone shed some light on what I'm doing ? Is it terribly difficult to wire, what extra parts do I need ? How fast should it go with 26" tires ? Thanks in advance ! Mike

Welcome ..... there is some stuff here that has to be syncronized....the controller and the trottle control need to work together.... What type of throttle control is in the cart? What is the cart?

Thanks for the reply, The cart is 91 CC 36V. The throttle control is I believe a V Glide ? not sure.

There are 2 types of throttle indicators out there. Their signal is in ohms resistance. CC stock controller carts use a 5k-0 signal (thats the throttle signal). Everybody else uses 0-5k.... You are going to start from scratch...so you should (IMO) go with the more common 0-5K controller and you will want a Curtis made PB-6 ( Potentiometer = common throttle body used for electric vehicles and that's the ezgo part you mentioned) These two things must be matched..They both need to be 0-5k....You need a good hd 48v solenoid. 700 amps is an awful lot of controller. Who said you needed that much controller for that motor?

ScottyB, I am a newbie at the cart mods game, So I have to take direction from often multiple sources, some good some bad thats why I am glad to find this site. With that being said I was told to buy the 700 amp "matching " controller, Should I ? or what do you suggest ? I have not ordered it yet BUT would prefer to order from Jerry @ cartzone ! Hes been a big help so far. Also what hooks the throttle linkage if I remove the V glide ?

You are gonna have to fab up a mount and possibly a linkage mod depending on how and where you mount it...
