Thank you for your response.

ok after three days we replaced everywire with 4 ga and soldered welding leads to everything. the fiberglass board that hold the coils is shot, but it is only 30 at local store. we put something together for now. with the mention large wires it seems to run cooler than before. we found some wire terminals that look like two strands held together so i think we found problem.

ok so when i called golf cart shop about the board for the round coils i got to talking with owner. he said with the system that we have with the larger wires we could put 8 volt batteries and find a 48 charger and have a bad *** cart. is it that simple with the vglide and coil set up? the 6 volts or about two months old so how about making room for another 6 volt. any one have ideas? yea we could by a newer 48 system cart used for 1500 minus tires rear seats and other gadgets we have. but dont want it that way rather leave 36 volt.

help

It will melt If you drive at anything other than WOT it will melt the Vglide... resistor coil carts are not good on 48 volts....

Here is a little info on how resistor coils regulate motor speed in a golf cart...
How a resistor cart works:
The application will differ from cart to cart but the theory is the same .... The speed wiper selects a resistor coil to feed through depending upon peddle position. Each resistor has a graduated resistance value which regulates how much amperage is allowed to flow to the motor. This use of different value resistors is how your cart changes speeds. The amperage that is not allowed to reach the motor is simply burned off. Increased Voltage increases this heat to the point where stuff begins to melt. The only throttle position where the coils are out of the circuit are stopped and wide open throttle (wot). I have driven 48v coil carts but it was at wot and off ... then wot and coast with very little driving at speeds in between wot and coasting... As soon as I let somebody else drive the cart they melted the Vglide

I'm not saying it can't be done. I'm saying it can't be driven by somebody who is not constantly aware of the heat problem ~ A meltdown can occur in less than 5 minutes of improper use. Hope this helps

I have actually had cars at 48 volts using resistor coils that quite literally caught fire...... Resistor cars were never designed for handling the 48 volts......
