Why on earth would anyone intentionally cut the sticker and gouge it in such a way as to hide what it is, unless they were trying to lie about what motor it is when selling it to an unsuspecting newb? Seems to do nothing but draw suspicion in my opinion. I hate when people do that sort of stuff.

At least it's 3.75 hp and not some measly 2.1 like my melex... :)

Well, I really just want more power for off road use. I would like to get atleast 18 to 20 mph out of it but basically just want more power. I wanting to get a 450 or 500 amp controllor and 4ga cables to achieve this.

The 500A controller and bigger wires will help with starting and climbing torque. You may not gain much if anything in top speed.

Nathan! Could he dump a stock 36v 3.5 motor in this cart and get what he wants? My 36v cart does what he is asking on 48v. So is it feasable to ?

ohhhh, good idea . Nate,I'm not really looking for speed,this buggie will be off road mostly. I'd just like to maybe get somewhere around 18mph. But it must be able to climb hills.

Not sure but it has a NFS number witch is used by the dod. Might be why this is all scratched off.

Yes a 36V motor on 48V would increase Wizcart's torque and speed. To get the most torque out of a 36V motor on 48V a bigger controller is recommended. If you are going to try the 36V motor anyway then try it with your existing controller first and see if it does what you want it to.

Shadowman, that probably means it is a cheap GE motor. One way to know for sure it to open it up and take a look at the windings. If the shoes can be removed individually and the field coils are what I call a "true wind" then it is one of the better motors. If the field can only be removed with a press then it is a cheap motor. The cheap motors are more difficult to get the armature in between the brushes when putting it back together.

Fyi, I've been running a 36v resistor cart on 48v for a year. Lifted ands 22s. goes about 18mph and climbs 45 degree slopes 10 ft tall agressively on a full charge. Now I have ordered a 480amp logisystems controller for it and pb-6. So I can let you know if that improves it's already kinda impressive ability.

Bh fear and I took this cart to my constuction site where D8 dozers where digging 20ft deep holes and this thing went in and out of those dozer pits. LOL BH has many years building carts and was impressed with what the little CC on steroids could do....
