Welcome to bgw
scottyb,
Is the half power reverse all that bad if I'm not out trying to stick my buggie in the mud?
I use the buggie to get to & from my boat from the house and as you can see in the pic (the ramp was an AWESOME idea even with lift & tires - buggie fits on it fine) I don't have a lot of room to maneuver around. I'm hooking up the reverse buzzer and was going to wire the 1/2 speed in on the controller. I don't want to go flying into the lake after a few beers..

Maybe it is just because I'm used to the way the old resistor cart acted. Does the solid state have a smooth transition as you step on the throttle? Slowly increasing speed? Maybe I'm hooking up the 1/2 speed for no reason??

Yes, the throttle is smoother from a controller than any of the resistor coil systems. You don't have 1/2 power reverse in your car, or do you? what happens when you want to back up that ramp? also if you have a programmable controller you can set the throttle response and to a slow start ....... To each their own...... I just don't care for it...

Backing up the ramp has never been an issue with my cart. I see all the talk (or typing) about 36v carts that run slow, have no torque, and really slow on hills. Fortunately, I never had that problem with mine.. Not sure if I have a great motor in there or what But even after I installed the lift/tires/rear seat, mine still topped out at GPS 14.2 and slowed on steep hills to GPS 10.2.

Even coming up that ramp with 5 people on the cart (of course most were drunk) with ice chest the cart would cruise up and make it to the door.. Now granted last summer she finally started having burnt wires when I had my big/heavy drunk friends on there..

Anyway, I think I will skip the 1/2 reverse and just hook the buzzer up.

Man, I can not wait until this thing is running.

Ok fellas I finally finished it.

Thank you again to everyone who helped me through this process.

Just for the record I started with a 83 cc resistor and did the following

alltrax 650
pb-6
400a sylenoid
2 ga cables
hd F/R switch
6" lift
22" tires
6 new 8v US batt.s

Here are some pics, I got it a little dirty before i took the last 3, i just could not wait.

Yea its amazing how well the 36v motor handles the voltage. Before the upgrade the cart did about 9 mph with 4 year lod batts. Now it does 22mph.

GLad to hear about another successful solid state conversion.... 650 amps! That's crazy
On another note keep an eye on those ratchet straps you have tying the batteries down. It won't take long for the battery acid to destroy them. Order up some factory hold downs ASAP, you are going to need them....
