As I clarified in post 15 I wasnt Brand bashing just asking in the brands why one CC would work out better than another CC and the same with other brands.

Maybe thats where you missed what I was trying to get at.

BTW this is what I do in alot of my free time.

So I'm guessing that a PDS cart isn't a Series cart??

No they are both TXT body styles but the controller and motors are different.

Visually to tell them apart the PDS has a F/R switch on the dash, a series TXT has the F/R switch by your leg under the seat.

To put it simply the series is more simplistic and durable. There isn't much you can do beside cables without a Controller and Motor upgrade to make it go faster or climb steeper stuff.
Same kinda with a PDS cart but it is a little more exotic in that it has regenerative ability with the motor, it can help charge itself (so I was explained today) it also comes with a basic programmable controller with chips.
A series cart can cruise slow without doing damage but a PDS cart cant cruise slow for a long time without the potential to cause damage to either the controller or motor.

Both can be upgraded with a larger amp programmable controller and motor.


See I learned allot today.

Scotty and the other dealers I spoke to about them, EZGO that is.

Remember I said Simply. If I am wrong please correct me. I too am still new to these.

I was told that going 5mph or under in the PDS cart can cause extreme heat which in theory will cut it off but can cause failure or damage to the controller, motor or both. The series can cruise slow longer without that kind of immediate damage but that the extended slow cruising is what builds the heat and kills them.

Again this is EZGO info and is better served in that topic but I guess could help in a CC cart as well.

Larger cables help flow more amps cooler than pushing alot of amps through a skinny wire. The skinny wire will heat up like a stove because the resistance is more.
