I would but I got this from my Dad. I don't want to go off and sell something that he gave me again. Is a 48 volt conversion out of the question? Will be needing batts soon.

I guess you can't disguise a vega as a corvette. Stock it is. But if a rewire is needed to convert I can do that or is a 48 volt just out of the question? I have seen other post that say the conponents would be alright, but not with a resistor cart. Havent seen that one yet.

The motor will handle 48v but the V-Glide and the resistors will have a shorter or real short lifespan and may be a problem. You also have to figure out how to charge 48v. This type of 48v conversion is prone to trouble and reliability issues and is not recommended by many people.

1985 CC is a 5 solenoid speed control cart ..... Electronically, you would have to replace everything except the motor to go to 48v and I just don't see you wanting to make the $1500 investment the upgrade will cost

and this $1500 does not include Lift Kit , tired, wheels ...etc just 48 Volt conversion parts.

Alright you win. Anybody got some nice wheels for sale? It does run good for as old as it is. I guess it is time to paint it. may look for a type of knobby in the stock size.

just a quick thought. Would a piece oof plywood under the cart or something like that be a good idea to keep dirt out. or does there need to be airflow for cooling something.

It's an all weather golf cart.
Ask yourself this question, would you screw plywood to the bottom of your passenger car to keep the dirt out?
