Give him another beer and tell him he is full of crap
Wot is bypassing all of the coils already. All you would do is eliminate 1st-3rd gear. Touch the gas and you would get WOT only

Unfortunately speed upgrades in an electric car are anything but inexpensive

It will work for awhile and eventually melt the speed control components.
Unless done properly which is not cheap .....

Yea. the old Club car resistor carts aren't the best ones for upgrading to 48 volts without modifications.

speed control is the pie shaped box with wires going to the resistor coils?

Ah yes, the Vglide. Here is what they look like after 48v is put to them for awhile

Ran mine for a year on 48 volts with the resistor coils, never really had any rough use. Never had a problem but i was waiting for one. Put a pot box and a controller in and eliminated the burning smell. They do run warm on the old system.
