Default Electrical Engineering Senior Project

Evenin' Ladies and Gents.

The name is Brandon. My good friend Brian and I are seniors in Electrical Engineering Technology up here up at the University of Maine.

We've got our hands on an early 90s club car complete with an empty battery bay.
motor pn# 1012191 (2hp 2800rpm 36v)
v-glide/resistor 'speed control'

the project is focused on designing and building a solid state controller. we need to pick up batteries. the plan is (6v batteries for 48v. We'd like to hit 500 or 600a on the controller with all the standard features of most aftermarket controllers.

beginning questions for you well versed club car fanatics:

motor: what kind of limits can we expect from the stock motor? if i were to just do 48v upgrade and buy a solid state controller, which controller would you recommend? at what point do we need to upgrade the motor?

batteries: from what ive read, we want (6v. not (4)12v, or (6)8v, for best range/performance/durability. whats recommended? how many Amp-Hours per battery is acceptable?

This is not my first forum experience, and your search feature works great. just lookin for some clarity, and a place to introduce ourselves.

What your goals and budget for the project is, that should be a more efficient way to exchange info.
