Default Converting 85 DS to Solid State

I bought all the stuff needed from ScottyB to convert my 1985 Club Car 36v to a solid state 48 volt cart. New 10 horse electric motor, potentiometer, etc. I will post pics as I complete it. Here are the first couple.

Funny you should ask. Ever heard of the show called 'Sliced'. Was on for about a season - where they cut stuff in half. John McCalmont was the host of that, and is a good friend of mine. I had him under the cart installing the motor!

Looking good! I plan on doing this conversion to my '85 this summer, so I'm watching every step. No detail is too small to report.

Looking god John, Very Clean. I like that ... Tell John M. were sorry we don't watch a lot of TV and surly we missed a good show but if he keeps standing around with his hands in his pockets, the only getting sliced in half around here is his wages

I've always thought that the more lead the better when talking about batteries, so is it better to upgrade to 6 x 8v or use 8 x 6v?
