Default V-Glide to Mcor Conversion

I have a resistor style CC and was wanting to convert it to a solid state controller set up, and was wonder what would be needed to make this happen. I know that i will need a controller and a mcor but i was wonder how the mcor could be installed on the cart and if there is a kit that would allow it to be connected to the throttle, since my cart was not designed for it?? Or any other option to make this happen.

It would be easier to put a potentiometer in than an MCOR.

Like SCOTTYB said get yourself a potentiometer unit ( PB5 or PB6 ) and if you have a V glide unit now ( you need to give year and model of Club Car you have to make giving info easier) you will be able to adapt your linkage from V glide to hook up to PB units.
Read all the posts and pick what you want to use.
Be sure and update all your cables to at least 4 guage welding cable with proper ends crimped and soldered with shrink tubing to cover bare parts of cables.

Thanks for the info guys. I will now start looking for parts!! I have the resistors that go in the v-glide to make it a pot, but from what i hear it is not a smooth acceleration, so if anyone wants them let me know and i will let them go for cheap.

sorry i forgot to mention it is a 98 36v CC that has been upgraded to 48v, but since i am changing all the components, all i need to do it make sure the ohms match on the controller and pot

It is easier to find good parts for 0-5k than 5k-0 systems.

would you recommend me buying the "pb-6" off of ebay made by fourthgen or go with the curtis product?? i am concerned about quality and i am very sceptical about buying anything off of ebay?? The one on ebay is half the price of the curtis version that is why i am concerned. Or does anyone on here have on for sale???
