Default 93 cc v-glide melt down x2

I asked this about a year ago and didn't get a reply, hope someone might help me. I have a 93 carryall that is just like the ds set up. 36v, resistor coils, etc. I took it up a fairly steep hill and the v-glide and wiper melted to the point of starting on fire! This happened at WOT. So I bought a new wiper and a new v-glide, upgraded to 4 gauge wires on the batteries and all the leads going to the coils and motor. Took off all the coil resistors and wire brushed them and reinstalled them. Then put a lift kit and 22" tire on it. on a flat road you could smell a slight electrical smell, but not too bad. When I went up a hill again at WOT major melt down again to the point that you can barely see the contact. I feel that buying a nother v-glide is like pissing in the wind! I have thought about going to a pot box and controller, but will this really solve my problem? To get more power, would I have to upgrade to 48V and I know with the current set up that would burst the "hunting bugggie" into flames!!! It seems like the motor is calling for more juice and it is bottlenecked in the v-glide, but the cart slows down and then stops. I made sure the contact between the wipper and the v-glide were solid and the meltdown still happened. I sure am clad I had a beer to spit the fire out with, otherwise I would have just saluted the roman candle! I hope someone can help me..... Scotty B are you out there!!!!!!!!!!

I am sorry to hear about the meltdown. You are just asking too much outta the old girl. You may have been okay with the new V-glide and cables but the big tires just increased the demand for more amps.... Your motor is calling for more than your system can safely deliver. The resistor coil technology is 25 or 30 yrs old You are gonna have to get with the times. You can upgrade in stages but you need to go to a solid state speed control system That means a controller and throttle pot.

Thanks Scottyb and Doomsman for the reply. I kind of was thinking that was the case, but the melt down the first time did it before I made the modifications, so I thought maybe there is another issue. Sorry if I got a reply last time, I just don't recall it and I was new to the site at that time. BTW, you guys do such a great service to all of us that get frustrated and confused about these carts....thanks alot for all your help. I plan on going with the Curtis PB-6 pot box but do you have a recommendation for the controller? I use the cart a few weekends out of the year for bowhunting and it is hilly terrain - do I need a programmable controller or would a non-programmable work just fine. Also, what would you say the lowest amp controller should be that I look at. I know a 700 would be ideal, but that costs a bit more than I can justify. Thanks again for all your help. Jim.

If you are happy with the performance of your cart on level ground and the only problem is with overheated components when climbing hills and then I would suggest installing a Czonka contactor (rated 500A) in parallel with the FNR (does the CC have this?), the Solenoid and the V-Glide. Essentially adding #4 wire from the +36 batt terminal through the contactor and directly to A1 on the motor. You are bypassing all the troublesome components (actually shunting them). The contactor is activated with a momentary pushbutton switch. I purchased this contactor on EBay for $68 a few months back for my ezgo. You cannot use this feature in reverse, only forward.
This mod was simply a money issue with me.
