Well I wanted to gps these two carts..... But we got lots of rain coming down and the dirt road won't dry out for awhile so I will have to wait. Both carts are same year, same make, motors, voltage, bodies, lift and tires. Different controllers....results later.

......I don't know but perhaps it is the fact that I was using a different brand of PB-6
what brand are you using? The good Curtis or the china knock-off? when you post your results..would you mind refreshing my memory as to what controller and motor combos you are testing..I though you used to have it in your signature but its not there now if you did...Thanks and cant wait for the results

OKay they are both 1989 DS both have identicle stock 36v motor, 3" jakes spindle lift, 20x11x10 Carlile Trailwolf tires at 8psi ( I am not changing the tire pressure just to get a couple more mph out of the tests but you could). Both have six eight volt trojans, pack readings will be at 50.2 to 50.4 at test time. One cart has the 480 logisystem with a curtis pb-6 and the other has an Allrax 650 AXE with the chinese pb-6. Both have the same oil in the rearend. Neither will have a roof on for the test.......THey should run the same......I will check brake adjustments first....but it has to dry out this muddy road first

Scotty, Thanks for your help on my cart as well ! I have all the bugs worked out. The conversion to solid state is the way to go, also it seems to run longer on a charge than it did on coil resistors (imagination ?) We use the cart every day around the neighborhood and its very dependable for the last few weeks anyway . I was reading this thread and have you looked into the GE 500 amp controller from Jerrys ? Its the cheapest 500 ive seen and it seems like great quality. My .02 cents... Thanks Again Mike P.S. With 25" tires and a flat road I got 26.9 mph w/36volts, plenty of speed for its height.

Catboatracer, Good to hear it is running well Not your imagination the old resistor coil system was dumping amperage. There was no control of the amp draw. The coils wasted varying amounts to achieve varying speeds... SO each time you touched the peddle you drew full power. Now with the controller you draw just the amperage you are asking for. This is why you are getting longer run time on your battery pack Can you estimate how much more run time you are getting? ( a % ?)
And ...can you post us a link to the 500 amp controller you mentioned?

Two identicle 36v carts with controllers on 48v...... Cart #1 with a 480amp Logisystem controller GPSed at 18.4 mph on 20 inch wheels. Not real fast but gets to 18 mph real fast and has loads of torque. Cart #2 has same lift, wheels, and tires but a 650amp Allrax controller....I think this cart ramps up faster than Cart #1 but it topped out at 18.0mph. Also with loads of torque... SO really no difference here except the off the line jerk . I think this confirms what has been said all along that 400 amps is about all these stock motors can draw. There was no big gains in the larger controller in this test.
