Default Re: 5k-0 or 0-5k does it matter.

Extractor,
I'm upgrading from the v glide and resistors to a controller. From what I gather that is the only reason to do away with the v glide. Let me stress the fact that I know nothing other than what I have read here, so don't take my word for it.

This is what I just ordered to get rid of my v-glide. Coming soon are 4ga cables and then 72v with new controller and motor. Can I hook up my PB-6 to work with my current stock controller/motor?
Here's what I ordered:

It depends on the type V-Glide you have, there are 2 types. Ones uses a muti-stepped series of resistors (controller type) and the other just has the contacts. If you have a resistor cart and are going to convert to a controller you will need the multi-step v-glide or a PB-6.

They both have there pro's and cons.

Multi-step will bolt right on but power delivery wont be as smooth as a PB-6.

PB-6 will require some modification but be the power will be smooth.

Yes. As long as you have a 5k-0 ohm or 0-5k ohm controller. You can swap the wires around inside to change it up if needed.

There I go jumping the gun. I'll check to see if I have that type of controller... um, and I do this how? I saw an earlier link about this, hope I remember where it was...

Thanks for all the info so far, I should be posting pics of my progress, it'll be more of a golf cart for dummies thread!
