Default What should Load Test numbers be...or not be?

Ive done some searches and not found these answers. My pack volts and hydro readings are good, but hoping to understand the load test better.

93 CC Resistor 36V Vglide (for now)

a good 6 volt battery should hold 6.1 or 6.2 for 10 seconds......these #,s arn,t out of a book or anything as every battery is gonna be different but whatever voltage battery you are testing under a general load should hold at least what voltage battery is......just my thoughts.......................

Wow, I ha ent recorded them yet, but I seem to remember my pack volts going to 27 or 28. Ill have to do this again with charged and rested batts...pack and singles.

Thanks SMan, I always appreciate your help and the fast replies. Curiously, is you cart ever going to thaw out? It looks so sad all alone in the snow.

if your batteries are dropping from like 36 to 27 or 28 volts yes i would be concerned at the most it should drop to maybe 35.............as for that cart thats just one of my carts i don,t even ride it just sits there and i,ll start it every once in awhile and take a look under the hood to make sure nothing is nesting in there..........i have 3 of them that i don,t even drive i havn,t rode them in 3 or 4 years......i keep them because i like them and they were very dependable carts when they were run....as for the snow i love working in it and driving the carts in it...........i have rebuilt plenty of motors sitting out there in a foot of snow using my picnic bench for a workbench..........i have a few carts that i keep so others can drive them when at camp and a few that me and the wife drive and a few works in progress..........my works in progress have no set times that i want them done they just give me something to do if i,m not working on someone else,s or if i can,t sleep.............theres nothing sweeter than being out at 3 am working on a cart using a headllamp and a clip on floodlight......i have tore down and rebuilt more engines in the middle of the night than in the daytime.........i think i do it just cause i like to and if it ever gets to where i have to i,ll just quit cause it won,t be any fun then........................

Well, I dont think I was full charged when I did that and honestly not sure now. I will try a good reading this weekend and update.

I have to say that driving in the snow was about as much fun as Ive had on my cart so far. we had a rare 7" in one day and I was amazed how well my cart handled it.

But now I have to ask. Is this what it comes too shadow? multiple carts...ones you dont even drive...working at midnight..IN THE SNOW? Im getting addicted fast....obsessed even... Youve got me worried that this is just my "gateway" cart. Please stop it...you're scaring me!!!

Your hooked, there's no turning back now, there is a support group anround here some where, but they just mostly talk about what new parts there going to buy for the cart,

It's funny you say that shadowman, about the 3 oclock am, working on the cart, I do the same thing, I find my self at 2-3-4am out working on the cart or my bike
