Default What "amps" is my system?

Not sure how to ask this question. I have the old style 5 solenoid cart 36 volt. If you have a controller cart, amperage is constantly mentioned. Is there a norm for what amperage my cart is considered running? What reduces/increases amperage in the system? Is it the coil (coiled steel) between the solenoids limiting? If so can the gauge be increased for more amperage flow?? Not sure if this even makes sense. I am already planning on upgrading to 4g. Just curious.

Funny guy, right there

Okay the amp rating you mention is used to rate the solid state speed controllers..... The higher the rating, the more amps the controller can make available for the motor to draw...... read that a few times

Your cart is a solenoid / coil resistor speed control ... Not sure what the ratings are of each coil but one thing for sure is WOT is all she has got and you can only improve upon that with the voltage upgrade. No coils are in the amp delivery system at WOT........ Is that making sense?

I got 2 of em... let me try this again...... notice each of the coils is a thinner ot thicker gauge. The size and length difference results in each coil being a different RESISTANCE factor when placed in line between the motor drawing amps and the battery pack...( the switching is done by the solenoids)
Hence the term ... Resistor cart

So by removing the resistor coils you will only end up with 1 speed WOT , no low of mid speeds , Just hang ON
