Default My First CC DS

I have built may Ezgos but this is my first CC. It is a 97 DS series cart. I am wanting to convert it to 48 volt, get a PQ motor, change the controller to alltrax 500 amp, 0 gauge wires(because I have them),48v solenoid, and get rid of the f/r switch and use reversing contactor. I have done this several times on the TXT's but they do not have the OBC. Is this something that is needed in these carts if I am changing all other electronics out and has anyone done this? What were the results?

If your 97 CC is 36v it is a resistor coil cart and needs a solid state conversion.

I am pretty sure it is not. It has a Curtis controller in it. Like I said though I know vertually nothing about CC so any help would be great

Are you sure it is 36v? With a Curtis controller it should be 48v. I could be wrong but I don't think CC put out a 36v controller cart!!

It is possible. The controller says 36-48 volt input @ 275amp. The controller looks factory and is mounted in the factory location from what I can tell by doing a little research on here. Are there other ways to tell what voltage it originally was? I got the cart with no batteries but all the wiring is intact.

Ok re-read everything a few times. I think I see you are saying you have a 48v controller cart. I changed out a 96 almost the same way you want, only using 2 gauge wires, heavy duty f/r switch, 500 amp Altrax controller, heavy duty solenoid, 36v motor (because I had one), 6" Jakes spindle lift, 22" tires, switched to a 8:1 rear end, coil over shocks on the front with Monroe gas shocks in the rear and most important 4 wheel disk brakes. WHY? It does 35MPH. It is also inspected and titled in Ohio as a LSV. Loved the look on the inspectors face when he test drove it!! Got to watch going top speed!! they get a bit squirrely at that speed!! They are top heavy when lifted like that and they will start to wobble if you aren't careful. I even added 2 in wheel spacers to try and stabalize it some. This is Old Yeller!!!

The charge port, is it round or kinda square? If round it is a 48v, if square it is a 36v!!

Not necessarily, I bought a 48v cart once that had a 36v motor already in it. 36v carts do not have an OBC.

CartTrader thank you. When I aqquired the cart it was complete minus batteries and motor, but everything else is there. Best part of that was it was free. I was just more or less going on that I was told it was a 36volt cart and not knowing anything about CC I just went with that. In this case though I guess I will be keeping my eyes out for a stock 36volt motor (do you happen to have another one?) and I will do the rest of the upgrades I was thinking of. I plan on a 12" wheel with Low profile tires for more of a neighborhood cruiser. I don't seam to get very much life from my all terrain tires on my neighborhood streets. Here's a pic of the last EZGO I did. It wasn't done a month and someone made me an offer to good to refuse so she had to go. It was a 2000 48 volt conversion on the stock motor with the Alltrax 500amp spm controller and reversing contactors for the f/r. It only had 4 gauge wires though. It would run 28 mph.
