I`m looking now for the best price on 8V batteries for it thru local resources.
From what I have seen, AC conversion will cost in neighborhood of $2500 - 3000 . . . . may be less, but I haven't researched it too thoroughly . . .

Steve what I found looking at website prices for it is $2650-$2900. For my use thru the woods and up and down hills the regenerative braking seems like it will be a plus with my crappy stock brakes (wich need adjusting). Plus it sounds like it will put some juice back to the batteries. With a high torque DC motor I was planning on front disk brakes so I'm hoping with the AC kit I can get by with stock brakes.

Erict I called on the price for the 6x8v's and $750 sounds good but I called another place and the lady said $580 for the same US batteries! I'm skeptical about that price so I'll have to drive to that store and double check.

I looked over the post for Offtwice cart envy and found his pics on how he mounted his controller and thats kind of how I'm thinking I would do it. Maybe add some rubber sheet from the bottom of the cart up towards the controller to keep debris off it since this is a trail cart.

Let me know about the $580 price. Does seem too good of a price. Did you talk to Jeff?

Not sure what his name was. I did't ask for him because it might be months before I buy the batteries. But they will be in before next fall.

Eric,
That price was to good I went there and the price is $129 ea. Deffinatly a better deal at Great Lakes.
Steve,
I've been debating and debating that AC kit price tag and I think I'm going to stick with DC motor and controller upgrade along with some disk brakes. All I really need is the torque for what I'm using the cart for.

Ckeck on ausco disk brake conv. for C.C. work really well.Also alltrax controller which is progamable for torque and other stuff, also go with 6 -8volts and you will still come out cheaper than A/C conv. I run 48 volt with a 600 amp. controller and hunt in Ky. where there are some really steep grade,s and have no trouble with torque.motor in my cart is a C.C. stock d/c advance 3.3 motor. good luck and hope this help's.

Happy Holiday's
