Default converting IQ to Series is it worth the $$$

I was going to upgrade my 2003 Club Car IQ cart but after doing some reading and talking to some people I think I've decided to convert my cart to a series cart can anyone tell me if they've done this, if it is worth it, and what all do I need to change and at what cost?

Wink Re: converting IQ to Series is it worth the $$$

My personal opinion is yes it's well worth the money u spend up front to have a torque monster cart. U will never get the torque out of a IQ cart you can get out of a series cart.
I built my daughter a cart out of a old IQ cart. It's the only 48 volt golf cart that I know of that made the Mammoth hill climb at the CAW last year. Her and Brandon's daughter were riding together and climbed it before I could get up to see them.
Here is a link with some numbers on pricing.



Advice on best starting point for custom electric project.

Here is what I started with.



Pulled the motor.



Gutted all the elctronics out of it and installed a 400 amp Alltrax.



Used the F/R switch with a 400 amp F/R contactor.








New usa extrem 8 volt batteries.




Had Robby do me a Pink motor, High torque and it runs about 20 MPH top end but it will climb a tree if you get traction.



After being painted.



At the CAW ride last year!

Can I use a stock f/r if I can find one from a series cart, and will the year of the cart matter? And what do I keep out of my IQ cart?

Thanks

Yes but if you look at the cam all the juice has to pass through those 2 little screws and they will be the weak link of the system.Pretty much keep nothing.
