You've got 24 cells in both systems. 2 volts per cell... But with 6 8 volt batteries the cells are larger. More volume. Less power drop under load. Longer run times, longer life expectancy.

I did the "free" conversion to fit the 6-8v in and it didn't take long to do. It took me about 2-3 hrs, and all the batteries fit right in and it looks great. There is directions in the Electric Club Car stickies! Follow the directions and it won't cost you much and you don't have to be all that mechanically inclined, just need patience and it will save over $400.

It is a matter of preference. I used the kit for several reasons. First, I did not want to cut the battery box and I wanted the factory look. There was a fair amount of corrosion on the aluminum heat sink in my cart and the kit eliminates the need for the heat sink because the electronics are moved to the outside of the battery box where there is much more airflow. You don't need an upgraded OBC to make this work, but an upgraded one comes with the kit, so that is not a bad thing. My kit was more in the $300 range than $400. If I convert another one, I am not sure if which route I would go. I can understand why folks use both methods.

One thing about having electronics in the tub is that even after several years thestuff looks brand new, the electronics when placed in the motor compartment are more exposed to the elements. Also I thought the kit came with a new heat sink.

Not the case with my electronics. My cart is an 07 and the electronics in the tub looked bad. I bought it used and can attest to prior maintenance.
With the kit, electronics bolt to a piece of sheet metal on back of the new battery box. No heat sink involved. They are enclosed in a plastic cover which protects them from the elements. I have used mine for about 9 months and the electronics area looks like it did on the install day. I assume it is the same configuration as the newer precedents.
