Default Need Help with V GLIDE

So here is a picture of what happened the other day to my v glide assembly. Notice the melted top resister pad.
I broke the wiper arm trying to get the wiper pad back in to place and somehow rig it?!?!?!? Can anyone sell me a complete v glide assembly? I know that this would be the best time to upgrade to controller status but I just can spend the 500-1500 bucks right now!

HELP PLEASE!

I have the same problem and also need a V Glide. Should I replace everything? Can anyone say why this happens? My top resister pad melted also.

Maybe because you like full throttle too much for too long

Question, I have read this before and do not understand. I have a 2000 DS with a vglide but have a motor controller. Are you speaking of a different kind of controller for the throttle, maybe MCOR?

They are very different systems, these guys are melting resistor coil drive system Vglides.
Your system does not run high amperage thru the V glide like these older systems did.
Hope this helps
THe guy that started this thread and posted these pics called me and he did convert his cart to solid state speed control. He is very happy with the way it runs as is the guy who sent me this email today....(below)

Scotty - I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help and your great products. The throttle conversion extension, bell crank assembly and potentiometer mounted easily and works perfect. Combined with the Alltrex controller, super duty solenoid and new 48 volt system, my '87 Club Car now runs over 26mph!!! and has plenty of torque. My previous attempts at upgrading this old golf cart all ended in failed and melted components and I was ready to call it quits. I'm so glad I found your products. My cart is now better than it was new and for a lot less money. I'm ready for hunting season!!!

Sincerely,

G___ Davis
