Default Re: V Glide Problem...Help!

Wariddle, obviously I'm no expert but I do understand those systems
If it were me and already bought the stuff...what the heck, go ahead and try it. just check the adjustments make sure the contact sits FLAT and as stated earlier covers 100% of the contact. If it doesn't work, you know that the big tires and pulling a heavy load is too much strain and amp load/drain for the VGlide and you need to consider a 'plan B'.

Oxfordlawn,

I have a 94 CC, 36v, 6" lift, 22" tires. It came stock with Vglide and controller. I have the stock controller in right now but I have a 650a alltrax on the way. I am going to run the stock motor for a while before I upgrade. Oh yeah I also have 4ga wires and hd soleniod. I bought the controller from a Guy in Wilmington, NC. He said he had the same controller in a 36v cart along with a raptor motor and was getting over 30 mph. with awsome torque.

Hi Willie,
The system Wariddle is running doesn't have a controller. Its all cables and resistor coils, with the main switching contacts in the VGlide housing. It was probably a good system for what golf carts were intended for, but when upgrading and putting motors and tires and such, the amp draw really strains the weak points, the contacts. Your controller system uses the same looking VGlide housing but its just a resistor box per say, and sending a modified voltage(throttle input) signal to the controller, which then sends the battery voltage to the motor. Its a much more durable system with less potential for problems and a bit easier to upgrade.

:added later: well after all that and going back to the beginning of this thread I see you were probably just answering my question about a controller in a 36V cart--LOL woops

Willie what is the model # of the 650amp Allrax? Is it programable? Or matched to your cart's V-glide ( 5k-0)
