Btw Gator, your cart looks bad ***, makes me rethink lifting mine & going withsome nice rims & low pro tires. Plus I'd have less to worry about on a resistor cart without the lift!

Thanks, my family has really enjoyed it........

Unfortuantly the bug hit again and I bought a 1986 Club Car gasser

Very true and thank you for the reply! The $800 for tires and rims actually includes the 6" lift kit.... I think I got a pretty good deal.

I pulled the trigger on the 48V upgrade and although this whole thing is WAY over what I "thought" it would cost me .... I am certain I will be happy with it.

I went into this truly blind... the next one will be better. HA !

You will be truly happy after the upgrade. ScottyB and the gang here helped me with upgrading my 91 36v cart after I lifted it and was having the issue of things burning up. That was 3 years ago and my cart with the 36v motor and 48v upgrade screams around at about 23 MPH on flat and has plenty of torque to pull 4 large people up steep hills. I have been really happy with the performance. Here is a pic.

I have a 36 volt resistor club car with a 6 inch lift 23" tall tires and a back seat. As for the worry of burning the v-glide up what I did was used a schematic from Buggies Unlimited called the High Step V-glide bypass.

http://www.buggiesunlimited.com/golf...e%20bypass.pdf


It replace the High speed 6 gauge cable with a 12 gauge wire to a 36 volt solenoid. This way all your doing with the V-glide is sending a 36 volt control signal therefore taking all the strain off the wiper. Has worked great for me and I use it climbing hills and off in the dirt at the campground. Heck I'm starting to think that I could possibly add 2 more 6 volt batteries after the bypass solenoid and run 48Volts to the motor.

Of course I would add another solenoid to kill the feed from the resistor pack ( or to keep voltage from back feeding the resistor pack) and also change out the solenoid to 48v

I'm interested to hear other peoples thoughts. And in case your wondering yes going to a controller would be the right way. But hey when your putting 2 kids through college the funds aren't always there to be an adult kid. (I'm just making lemonade)

Interesting approach, I haven't heard of anyone bypassing the V glide like yours.

Interesting.... I might try this as well. I'm just getting into the cart scene and trying to learn. Where did you source the 36V solenoid that you used?

I'm using a white rogers 120-20 36 volt solenoid. It is a standard golf cart solenoid cost was around $20. It is the same as your main solenoid.

And in case you wondering I'm on my second season and check the v-glide this winter. There were no signs of arcing or discoloration. The cart runs right at 20 mile an hour on flat ground. I do check and clean the connections once a month.

Now I would like to say again if the wallet would allow it I would switch to a controller just for the simplicity. But my thought is if I'm going the controller route why waste the money on 48 volts. If you gonna do it it seems to me that 72 volt is cheaper in the long run.

That's impressive, my cart isn't running anywhere near 20mph. What else have you done to get that speed? I have two people interested in my 36v cart but if I don't sell it I will definitely try the solenoid.
