Default Re: Ordered a 48V Plum Quick Speed Motor

The Plum Quick's are multi taskers, if you get a standard upgrade motor , you
get both ends, hi and low , so no difference than your factory motor, more torque and speed.
If you call them and get a motor wound only for Speed no extra torque then
Yes , at low speeds it will cause extra heating .

Hope this helps !

Default Re: Ordered a 48V Plum Quick Speed Motor

I installed mine and only used for a little while (very cold outside)and had a gain of about 2 mph. This was with their 48V speed motor. Im now running a steady 19-20 mph. I shipped back my 36V to be redone, Robby insists I'll see better results with that motor being reworked, for some reason the 36V motor rebuilds better I guess..I dont know. Wasnt quite the results either one of us thought I would get which is why I was posting my question about battery voltages and testing the battery packs..as a whole and iindividually.
I mistakenly posted my battery testing question in the "electric Golf carts" forum under repairs and trouble shooting, but if anyone has anything to add on top of what ScottyB has already suggested, which has started me in the right direction..it would be great.
My batteries are new "Wal-mart"(yeah I know) Johnson Controls GC8's, and have realized that even after charging all night the battery charger doesnt turn totally off....still running at 53 or so volts...this doesnt seem right..is it?

could the charger be acting that way because of the upgrade from 36v to 48v and not having an obc to control the charge?

I don't think his has an OBC, the charger controls the charge, I think I read somewhere on here that the 36v carts don't have obc's

Default Re: Ordered a 48V Plum Quick Speed Motor

but in a 48v does the obc help to control the charge? i have a 2000 cc DS 48v and from what i know the obc helps to control the charge, so depending on the charger could the lack of an obc be playing games with how the charger is treating the batteries in ox's cart?

yes, your suspicions are correct!!

The charger as you have requires an obc, others don't require it
