Default AC. Conversion Pott#2

Will try to give some info on our 2000 cc. conversion to 3-phase ac
My neighbor called and asked if I would help him do a conversion in my garage as a surprise for his family for Christmas. Since I am retired (retarded ha ha) and have the time on my hands "yea right".
When we started the cart was a bare frame power washed,all components removed, all panels removed. we did a 6" lift kit first front steering, assy. rear spacers, ect. new bushings and shocks,and installed the new throttle pot while under the car. Correct adjustment per instructions is important.Then replaced old motor with new 48v 3-phase ac motor, which fit right in.The instructions that come with the kit are actually very good. the only part that is reused is the original OBC.
Next the component mounting on the vertical plate under/behind the front seats.Front passenger side new controller (it is rather large) driver side the old OBC., back side of same panel is a bracket for 300amp fuse to positive side of batteries. With some spare room in this area we mounted an electric winch controller (not part of kit) to control a winch unit to be mounted under the front bumper later.
Next installed a cool mirror finish stainless dash panel which has hi/lo speed switch,key switch, digital meter which gives battery %,speed, ect. and battery warning light. Note: at this point we put a secret switch up under the frame to disable the high speed range as there will be youngsters running the cart, hi is close to 30mph, may be to much for them.
Will continue at a later date if anyone is interested? also will try to include some pictures and the diagram for the wiring which is hard to get unless you buy the conversion kit. I might add this is a rather pricey deal and will take 40+ man hours but is fun to do!

We had one of these done. I must say the results werew impressive. You can just throw the brakes away .... the motor braking and acceleration are both very impressive. NOT CHEAP

Torque speed and run time are all dramatically improved. If you have the $ it is worth the conversion...... AC Regen braking is more effective that stock brakes.

Will have to get back to you with the details on where the kit came from as I did not purchase the equipment, just installed it To much for my wallet but fun

We were told the advantage to the conversion is Higher speed and longer continuous use (cruising) com paired to standard use for golf, Start and stop
I can tell you the top speed on level ground is great I will say this there is no noise except the sound of the tires on the pavement.

Our cart was stock also ran 28mph and quick to get there ... The most interesting to me was the great de-acceleration

The de-acceleration is great, the whole build was a fun challenge to do
The spookie part is how quiet this cart runs there is no sound, just tires on pavement.
