Thats enough from me. No one wants to here any input from someone who's done this sorta thing several times before so your on your own. GOOD LUCK and have a nice day! LATER!
Quit being so sensitive --geez. If I wasnt looking for ideas from people who have tried it, I wouldn't ask for help in a help forum. Your input in the beginning set me straight on my wiring mistakes. Thats what this is all about. I think I have my final plan layed out as I tried to diagram, and awaiting some input on that. I would definately use a WOT limit switch so as to not activate across the coils, and probably grab activation feed off the f/r switch so as to only work in "F" also. Do I need the high Voltage diodes in the setup anyplace with the way I have it layed out?

Not looking to win the "catch on fire" race
But I do believe this can be done

Not trying til I get the "ok" or "not OK" on the 6 terminal solenoid diagram I posted and wondering if diodes needed anywhere inline. Still in the R&D stage I guess, any input???

Also UPS is fast but not that fast I dont have the switches or solenoids laying around

This stuff is Kewl.
Ox just put the 6 12 Volt Batteries all in and in series first , see what melts
as things melt replace them.
When the 72 volt is stable then we can work on how to split part of the pack out.
I'm like Roady I want to see action !

He's not doing 72 volts, he is using his standard 36 (or is it 4 volt setup, and adding a 12v battery for boost. So either 48v or 60v during boost... But, your way sounds the most fun, for US! :)

That would be intersting huh?? Running 72 Volts thru an old VGlide resistor setup. Im guessing the contacts would weld together in the VGlide and I would have some interesting driving experiences and stories to share

BUT---thats not what I was aiming for, but the scenario did help with some questions I had when Roady posted about that type setup, but not for this idea. As SP-Elec says and realizes, I just want an occasional boost of 12v and trying to get an answer if this 4th version of my wiring setup with the double sided solenoid is looking correct--and what about diodes??
So close to a solution and enjoying the discussion panel--thanks

Without knowing how the 6 terminal solenoid operates, I am not sure... Is it a "flip-flop" style setup, so it turns one set of terminals on and turns the others off, or ?

I still think it'd be risky, but might be FUN to try it anyway, provided you can afford to replace the motor and other components if they should break.

yeah its a "flip flop" solenoid--only one side makes contact at a time--unactivated, one side is connected, when activated, the other side makes contact---never a double connection

Default Re: Will this 12V boost theory work

OK heres an explanation of why I am trying to get this "boost theory to work. My ALLSPORTS 6" supersport lift and tires and rims arrived

Bigger tires than what I ordered arrived and I think the cart may need a little help getting those big tires up the hills and out of the cart path tunnels we have around here. On the flats shouldn't be a problem, time will tell I guess.
So this is what got this whole thought started--just so y'all know
