Default Just Something I have Experienced With The 36 Volt Motor Theory

OK, installed the motor as per my other thread

Is this a candidate for the 36v motor theory

I've noticed although i have one bad battery, which is being replaced this afternoon, although the pack voltage draws down from full charge to 48.3 volts, almost immediately (due to the bad battery dropping to around 6.24 volts under load), the cart still keeps going almost as good as with a fully charged pack. It only seems to drop about 2-3 mph on the GPS.

Wow

Sounds like the motor is running well.

What kind of top end speed are you getting?

I have a 91 36v CC that I just converted to 48v solid state and running 20.4 MPH on the GPS with brand new batteries. I'm pretty sure I will gain some more as my bat's get broken in. But the torque and speed are awesome with that 36v 91' motor. It's original..

Tire size plays a big part in this...... I ran 18.5mph on 20 inch tires

19 mph with a bad battery and drops to 17 after a few yards

What my point was is that even with a bad battery down to around 6.2 volts its still pulling around 17 mph. Is that because its a 36 volt motor and only requires 38.2 volts, But because its getting around 48 volts its still pumping out the speed and torque. If thats the case then its a double wammy in that a 48 volt motor would barely move

One thing i would say is that the motor casing does get quite hot. You can touch it though (its not burning hot). Is that normal?
