Default What model 36 volt motor do I need for my 48 volt cart?

I've decided to swap in a 36v motor for more power/speed into my 48v 1996 DS.

I just need to know what model motor to get & where to find one. I looked on ebay and they have new motors for 36v/48v carts. I want an actual motor just for a 36v cart.

My DS is stock as far as the power goes. It does have a 6" lift with 22s on it, which makes it a tad sluggish on an incline.

Thanks.

If your looking for more torque instead of speed and are willing to put the money towards a new motor...why not just get a bigger controller? that solves this problem and theres no guessing game involved...

It sounds like he wants a 36 volt motor so he can avoid the expense of a new ccontroller, which I believe a 36 volt motor in a 48 volt cart would yield more speed and torque.

But if it is not an expense issue I would look into a new 48 volt motor with a new controller. That is what I did with my 2000 DS and I get about 25MPH, goes up hills like they were flat.

Which motor/controller do you have?

I'm looking for both speed and torque, from what I've read on this forum a 36v motor will do that when installed on a 48v cart.

I'm not willing to buy a new motor, I was actually looking around for a used one out of a 36v CC.

Expense is an issue, I would love to throw $2000 at this thing and have it go 30mph. I was hoping to find a used motor for around $100-200, slap it in and go.

I put this theory out there back when I started putting 48v to a 36v motor (cart).
Several bgw members have confirmed it works exactly as described. Just find a stock 36v series motor and put it in your SERIES cart.

I really don't know. I'm guessing its all stock, I'd have to get under it and look. It does about 16-18mph on a flat road. The small hills bring it down to about 10mph.

Exactly, but i'm having a hard time locating the stock 36v motor. Any ideas?

I have a 36v EZGO motor I'm getting ready to sell, hoping to come out even after finding a CC motor.
