Default Looking at a Club Car DS 1998

I don't have the serial number yet but I am told it is a 36 volt and from what I can tell it is in good condition. Battery's were replaced about a year ago. It has the rear seat and side rain curtains. Owner is asking 1800.00 but I am sure I can get that down a little. BTW its in North FL so there are lots of carts and the lifted craze has hit here and the prices are going up from what I saw 2 years ago on used ones.

Here are 2 pics for referance


What should I look for in this cart. Can anyone shed light on any problem areas? What about the control box?

We roll around the trails and have rented a few when we go camping, but I want to get one and lift it and make sure it can haul 4 Large grown adults around the woods.

Thanks for any and all replies

This will be my first cart so I don't want to spend to much but I have heard that the CC uses a Aluminum frame so no rust down there. Thanks again for your guidance.

2 things come to mind on a 98 CC 36v will be a resistor coil cart not a good cart for big wheels or 4 adults and the 48 volt versions of those 97-99 years were early Regen 1 and 2 versions = also not a great system (soon revised or abandoned)... so all in all I say steer clear of early 48v carts pre 2000 and resistor coil carts (made till 03) of any kind... Good luck enjoy the hunt, and welcome to BGW!

How many volts? & which throttle input? I could be wrong ? I do know they made much better carts than those 1st 5 years of 48v... ask any CC tech that question. Ezgo made some questionable drive systems too in those years....

CC made series cars in 95,96,97,98and up.They were all 48 volt and very reliable.Stay away from 36 volt resistor car if you want to lift it.

If you happen to be ( REALLY VERY LUCKY ) you might find a 36 volt CC converted to solid state controller by by previous owner using after market parts. The stock resistor speed control is very battery power wasteful but at least you should have the ( V Glide pie shaped ) pedal speed control below drivers seat between batterys, that can be converted with set of electonic resisters that dont waste battery power when used with solid state controller unit.

FYI.... the 48V Series cart was built from 1995 until 2004. The first 16 weeks of 1995 it came with a 0-5K controller, and from A9517 until 2004 it was left unchanged other than minor OBC configuration and mounting designs. The controller, motor, wire harness connections, and everything else was the exact same the entire time. They're good carts. Scottyb is correct however, about the early Regen Carts... STAY AWAY!

What are the troubles you have with the regen 2 carts. The one I have is a 1999.Plans were to leave this cart stock except for a rear seat.
