Default Re: Keep 36v and modify or sell and get 48v?

I was/am in near the same boat. I use mine at work and kept the 36v so far, with upgrades to wires and switches, wires alone will boost performance.
I suggest looking at the controller on the 36v, some can go 36/48 some 24/36, mine is the 24/36 so Im kinda stuck intill Im ready to buy all at once. Post pictures, the guys here are amazing when they can lay eyes on it:)

if the 48 volt has a rocker for the F&R than its a reagan......if a lever its series...............if its series i would keep it and either put a high speed motor in or put the motor in from your 93 but if you do that ( motor from 93 ) its gonna be harder to sell, but whatever you decide yes get your elec,s done 1st................................

Is there any way to tell by reading the Serial Number? I'm not sure, without seeing one, that I could tell him the difference in a rocker and an arm if it's not OBVIOUS as can be.......

Maybe this will help. The "rocker" is like a switch and the lever is more like, well...a lever. But the picture shows all the key things on differences between the two. http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/elect...en-system.html

There is also a serial number chart in the sticky section above showing some series and Sepex/Regen variations. I wish I was in your position now needing new batteries. That way, I could go ahead with a full upgrade on all the electrics. I'm afraid there is a lot of life left in mine now, and the wife will strangle me if I go dumping another 1700 into a cart that runs to her just fine. Keep us updated on what you decide.

So I think the 97 is a Regen. Is that bad for modifying? Seems like I read somewhere that is was.
Here are some pictures that the guy sent me. I know, rough......
and the last one is my current cart in its "Stockness"

Okay so this cart is a Reagan that makes it a little more difficult to modify, it can be done but it's not as easy as doing a series cart. My suggestion would be to talk to David or Scotty and see what they think. If you have access to the cart can you lift the seat and look under it and tell us what color the controller is?.....................................

I don't have access to the cart. It's about 1 1/2 hour away from me. I'd say i'll just forget about the cart and buy one of scottyb's packages to convert mine to 48 and a controller........

Thanks so much!
