I agree. That's the ultimate solution.

It would be hard cooling a solid aluminum panel with a fan, but the heatsink definitely works.
Do you have a picture of the heatsink you could share please?

Also - installing an oversized control and turning it down a little seems to help a lot with these too hot systems. When this is done the control is working below capacity and tends to stay cooler in general.

Good info, I'll try some of the suggested things. Cart has the OEM controller and motor with a magnet. Didn't really want to drop a ton on a new controller but may have too.

Unfortunately no, I don't sell new ones. They're no longer available. However, Club Car used to use them on the 1st generation Precedent and I've hoarded quite a few cars that I did the i2 battery box conversion. I think I've got 3 left.
