Default 92 Club Car DS questions

Hello,

I am a first timer and I appreciate have a few questions if I may.

1. I am reading that a 36V will lack power and have various issues when lifted and with a back seat. How can I remedy this problem? (I have a 6inch lift with 22" tires that are about to be installed)

2. What is involved with a change from 36V to 48V. Is it as simple as switching from 6volt to 8volt batteries? Is there any real benefit to making the switch?

3. I may add a radio with small speakers. Any additional equipment need to be added to allow for the extra power draw?

Thanks a lot and I appreciate any feedback !

I'm a noob to this site as well even though I've been reading as much as I can about the questions you just asked. I wanted to suscribe to hear what the experts say...

First off, to each of you, WELCOME to BGW!
Here are some answers:
1) I would either upgrade your cart to 48v or sell your current cart and buy a 48 cart. 36v will not handle extra weight and lift very well.

2) it is not as easy as switching batts. You must get a new controller and solenoid and F & R switch I believe, but 36v motors run quite well on 48 volts, so you don't need a new motor.

3) you will need either a voltage reducer or separate 12v battery to power the radio

Jake,

Thank you for the information. I will look into upgrading the electrical system to switch to 48volts. I only hope its not a huge expense and I am glad I asked the question BEFORE I purchased 6 volt batteries.

Thank you !!
