Default sepex to series conversion

I want to change a 2007 Precedent from a sepex system to a series setup.
Will I have to change anything other than the motor, controller, f/w switch, wires, pot box & solenoid?

That sure sounds like a lot of work and money for parts. Just wondering why? Probably cheaper to go buy a series cart.

On board computer and F&R, probable some of the wire harness too? Not too certain on the wiring because I've never seen this done.

That seems to be almost like a downgrade...
Sepex is a newer style compared to series i think?

IMHO, I would either sell or trade your cart for a series cart that you like. You'll spend a ton of money on a conversion that you may not break even on when you sell the cart!

I already have a d380 to put in; controller should be biggest expense.

I've done it. And I'm about to do it again. I can walk you through it if you're interested.

Look at the 8th post on this thread and it'll give you some ideas...

Because I prefer a series setup for this application. In my experience, series controllers and motors hold up to a whole lot more abuse than any shunt style system I've ever seen. I'm constantly seeing shunt style systems come back with overheating problems when people use them in hilly terrain. In the neighborhood I may reccomend a shunt style, but in the woods it's series.
