Default Re: Choosing the right cart.

Thanks dcannow. That's the info I'm looking for.

Somebody educate me on what is a series cart? I've looked around locally and have found DCS, PDS, and IQ carts. Where should I look for a series cart?

I'll definately start with a 48V cart vs a 36V.

Thanks for the help so far!

What motors have a good reputation for reliably running the higher top speeds?

Also what is considered the best controller?

If running 23+ mph requires changing the controller and motor, why start with a series vs a regen type cart? Is there more to a regen cart than just the controller?

Run "search" for motor & controller combo. You will come up with info. Then get on the phone to some of our sponsors for info and prices.

Still searching for a cart. Looks like I've settled on Club Car. Since I'm looking to upgrade the cart for faster speed, what year/model would be the best to start with?

I am partial to 48v 1996 to 2000 . They are easier to upgrade by motor and controller replacement and initial cost is low. A key to cost is the age & condition of batteries. Keep in mind a set of Trojan 875s will run about $650. If you find one with new batteries make sure they are Trojans or equal. Contact two or three of our sponsors for a package deal for motor, controller (400amp min.) a full set of #4 battery cables, 6" lift kit and wheels/20"tires and any other goodies you can't live without. Several will give you a BGW discount. Then be prepared to just stand around grinning and signing autographs!! Good luck & keep us posted.

Did the IQ carts start in 2001? I understand they are the regen type. Is this what makes them harder to hotrod?

I just don't think a regen fits with an upgrade project. Plus you will lose the regen anyhow with a motor rebuild. I am more old school and find that the simpler, the better. Others on the forum have had good results with the IQs so if you do get one hop back on and they will help you kick it up a couple of notches.

What's a good price to pay for a 1996-2000 48v cart?

How much more should a 2001-2005 be?
