There are 2 throttle positions that this cart can run on 48v, they are wide open throttle and off. Anything in between will result in the pictures above.

Pics look like a 110v unit plugged into a 220v outlet . . .

Woah. So minus the batteries, what's a rough cost figure for this upgrade?

About 6-700
There are many levels of upgrade to choose from. You can buy or make cables sets and throttle conversions depending upon your likes and needs.

What do you mean 'Make cable sets and throttle mechanisms'?
Whats going to be the bulk of the costs here?

Can you give me a layout of what all I should get to have plenty of room for 'voltage', so to speak? Controller i'm assuming, solenoid, batteries, charger connection, charger, then what?

A throttle conversion and potentiometer mount is $129. You will need this to replace the V-glide with the potentiometer. You won't need a new charger receptacle if you get the right charger. Mine comes with a plug to match your cart.
Some guys have used the 36v charger and a 12v charger on the 2 extra batteries in the rear. Depends upon your budget. A choice like that can save a few hundred dollars going into the project with an eye towards upgrading the charge system later.

you can keep the v-glide by adding resistors... its not the smoothest pot, but its cheap and reliable.

It would be a 'step' instead of a variable potentiometer.
This is how Club Car set up the early years of controller cart throttle systems. They soon went to a true potentiometer in the MCOR system.
I have never seen a 'multi-step' used on an off road cart with 500 amps and big tires, so I don't know how well they work under those conditions.
