SO you have a 48 volt series Club Car and you took the 48v motor out and put in a used 36v CC series motor and got the 30% gains we talk about?

Noooo.... I bought a new 36v motor Luckily for me the guy I bought it from was aware of this "series" thing I took the body, roof, tires, seats, and other items off a 2005 CC and put them on the the 97 CC. And yes, the gains reported here brought a big smile to my face. I was hoping for a little and got a lot. I guess it pays to read, read, and read some more.

Great forum, thanx again

Okay, not too much difference between a new and used golf cart motor in the first 10 yrs ..... they take over 30 yrs to begin to wear out .... but I am happy somebody finally took advantage of this little theory of mine...
Many times we have put 48v to a 36v cart to improve them. You are the first I heard of who actually took advantage of the reverse action. It has got to be the biggest improvement for the least amount of $ possible Thanks for letting us know how it worked out.....

Theory, schmeory! Of course it works, scotty. There is absolutely no reason why it wouldn't. Trust the science, it will set you free.

Ohms. It's the LAW!

Yeh, Until this guy it was pretty much unproven, even though it was rock solid logic What a cheap thrill. Used Stock Cc motor = $100 ? Stick it in your series 48v CC and gain 30% torque and speed..... Wowser

Well time to send my old PQ motor back to the boys and have them send me a 36 Volt back ?
Hummmmm perhaps this is what PQ/DD are really doing all along, Very VERY interesting

We all know that in order to get the most out of this the cables, controller, and solenoid need to be upgraded as well.....
