Default Home made speed controller is it possible

Ok so im on a slim to none budget to make this cart work, is it possible to make a home made speed controller? or would it be so bad to just make my gas pedal an on/off switch? this is the idea of making the home made controller Fig. 20 is what im looking at http://diyfiles.com/golfcart2

NO.

Buying all the right solenoids might cost more than a controller. On/off is not a very smart idea either. What are you going to do if the solenoid welds itself shut? Save your money and do it right so no one gets hurt. Keep checking ebay and the for sale section.

Welcome goob,

What type of cart do you have? I have a used CC controller I would let go pretty cheap. Its out of a '94, 36v cart. I think its a 1204. I plan on taking it out this weekend. I'm upgrading to a programable alltrax.

Does it have a solid state controller now or resistor coils?

Well if you can use a stock curtis controller I have one. It is off of a '94 cc 36v.
