Default 2002 systems explanation??

Has anyone got a simple explanation of the systems used? I know (from the pictures in the sticky threads) how to tell which is which. I want to know, in practical terms, what is the difference? Why the 2 systems on the same model and year? Both are 48 volt - I can obviously see the benefit of 48 over 36. Any info would be appreciated.

2002
36 volt = resistor coils, copper contact speed control and f/r switch

48v series= copper contact manual f/r, efficient due to controller, but not as efficient as i.q. system.. stock speeds around 12-14 mph depending on motor installed. Good Car, series controllers are hard to blow up on accident, and a little easier to work on.

48v i.q. = most efficient, speed adjustable by dealer 8-17.5 mph stock, or about 19 with speed codes. all solid state f/r and speed control.. Only real con, is playing with these yourself its a little more sensitive to wrong wires being hooked up etc..

Why the same year and different cars? Real simple.. $$$ different levels of quality for different prices. Helps achieve bidding wars...

Power Drive Plus diminished Club Cars ability to claim their high quality.. They redeemed themselves with the IQ...

PDP is extremely faulty, I almost never replace the original controller with a OEM, or actually I NEVER replace with OEM controller. Horrible.
