Default resistor cart

Does anyone know anything about resistor carts, if I'm even spelling it right. Is there any upgrades for them I have a customer with a 2003 cc 36 volt that wants to increase the torque. Never messed with one any info would help.

Could add 48volts to the 36volt motor but then you need a new charger. Or you can convert it to a controller cart.

You could do the 4ga cable upgrade to gain a little torque. Without going to a controller and upgrading everything about the only real improvements would be to do a motor swap. You could do a 48 volt upgrade but thats gonna be pricey by the time you figure in a set of batteries and a charger. 48 volts would get you a 20 to 25% increase in speed and torque.

There is a limiting factor with the resistors. You can't get a baddass motor because you will melt the coils. You can put a mild motor in there and it wont hurt it. You would be better off upgrading to 48 volts. Or call soome of these motor rebuilders and they can build a mild motor. I guess its all up to what the customer wants and how much he wants to spend.

He's not a cart nut like us so I'm just going to tell him to be happy with what he has or sell it and get another cart. Thanks for help.

The easiest thing to do would be put a battery(s) in the bagwell and charge with a seperate charger.

I installed 4 gauge wires and a manual 2 speed motor on my 36 volt resistor cart?fair amount of gain in torque and the top speed was 17.3 mph. One thing to remember is that you will still have a 6 gauge wire located on the wiper arm?inside the V-Glide?weak link there?I then upgraded to 48 volt and installed a high amp motor?melted the resistor coils and V-Glide?put a standard upgraded motor in with less amp draw?melted the V-Glide again?this was due to driving slow pulling heavy weight with the cart?he can add two batteries to the bag well and charge them with a 12 volt charger and still charge the main pack from the 36 volt charger?that is about the cheapest way for him to go?

Default Re: resistor cart

I've got an '89 resistor cart. I sent the motor to PQ for a bandit upgrade ($225 +shipping), went to 4 G wires (****.com for $72 - great service, all custom sized and lugged, all marine grade cable), bought 23" Desert Duros on 12" spoked wheels from Ebay ($370). I now get 25 mph and fantastic acceleration. The guys at PQ said the system would handle 48V too with only having to change the solenoid.

Since the wire company is not a sponsor, I didn't post the name. I'm not sure of the rules, if I can reccomend them here.
