Default 8-6v battery placement

I believe i put this in the wrong section before, lets try this section. Ok, I am upgrading my clubcar to 48v. I see that 6v batteries have more AH than 8v batteries. Can someone post a pic on where they places the extra two batteries? I can go with 8v batteries and be good, but I would like to see how 8-6v batteries fit in an early 80's clubcar.

Thanks

John

When people add extra batteries, they usually put them in the bag well.

Hope this helps,

Why not just put 8v in it?
They will fit right where the 6v went, and it will be cheaper and you will only have to maintain 6 batts instead of 8...

The reason I was thinking 8-6v batteries was run time. I wonder what the run time difference is between 8 and 6 volt batteries.

I guess if you can find a place to put the other two batteries. You only have so much room under the seat.

I believe it does increase your runtime and its doable, I did it on my 1990 ds.... I used 2 pieces of aluminum angle and got it to fit... I had to trim some body by the seat since they ride higher and set does ride on them so I use a piece of foam across them for now until I drop it down another inch or so.
