48 volt motor won,t work in a 36 volt cart......... unless the rearend you have is from a 48 volt cart then your ok but go with a 36 volt motor anyways...............get a 36 volt motor a controller and a pot box...........scotty has them all then all you need worry about is batteries and charging............................

Use the stock 36v motor and run it on 48v ... the increased voltage will wake up the motor.
Results are best if you convert to electronic speed control (ESC).
Resistor coil carts will meltdown on 48v.

how long till the melt down, or will it last for a little while? the esc, is this something you can just add to a resistor cart or this replaces the coils? if you would please explain please im learning these cc slowly but surely what you can do and what you cant do thanks sorry i had to add to this i have 2 diff carts this above is purtaining to my 89 cc, i also have a 99 cc it has a controller what do i need to know about putting 48v to it, just hook it up? or....

The meltdown depends upon the condition of the motor prior to the upgrade; the weight of the cart; the size of the tires; the terrain; the weight of the driver's right foot

The electronic speed controller replaces the resistor coils, the potentiometer replaces the V-glide, and the grin replaces the frown


Your '99 may be a 36v resistor coil or a 48v ESC cart?

Thank you for all of the information. From what i see from ScottyB in order to get my 1994 CC faster but also have torque is to go 48v into my 36v motor. The process: drop in a couple more 6v batteries (8 total), upgrading the controller, the solenoid, and battery wiring, and getting a 48v charger. I might need a massager as well for the bruise in my wallet!! Ha.

its a stock cart, wheels, tires etc, i removed the access panel theres a controller box in the middle and 2 solenoids 1 on left an 1 on right, the one on left has small coil maybe 3 coils coming from it

peter are you sure you have a 36 volt cart? you mention 2 solenoids and that should be a 48 volt reagan cart...............how many water fill holes in batteries and what does end of cord look like that plugs into cart? is it round or a crows foot??? if its round thats a 48 volt cart...........................
