My second question seems to have opened a can of worms.
So what is a controller cart? I am new to this and dont really know the terminology...It is definitely a 36 v (3 water holes per battery and a 36 V charger)...The previous owner showed me a big spring/coil by the motor and said that it can get really hot when run for a long time (even glow red if I remember correct). I think I will have more questions but lets start there.
is this your set up ?



post photos of cart battery area and any controls

Not at home but that sure looks like what I got...not sure of all the exact wiring details, but that setup looks like it.

when you get home check it ... the colors are factor colors so they may be different than your cart if someone rewired it .. the 38v V-Glide was from 88-03 ... the 36v controller model (88-03) does not have the resistor coils

the V-Glide refers to the fan shaped power controller

I just looked and the diagram looks like what I have...took some pics and will try to upload them after work.

Alrighty, you do indeed have a resistor cart, not a controller cart. These two terms refer to the method of speed control for the motor. Your cart uses the coils back by the motor to burn off extra energy as heat and therefore reduce speed. As you push down on the go pedal less coils are used, increasing the power to the motor. A controller is simply a newer and much improved way of controlling how much power goes to the motor when you press on the pedal, and it does it without wasting energy as heat at lower speeds. The Vglide is the wedge shaped thing on the left frame rail with the heavy multicolored wires running to it as CTD pointed out. It controls, in simple terms, which coils the power goes to, I think of this as the "carburetor" on these carts.

from my research today you have a " dual motor "
GE motor Model #5BC58JBS6334 = 36V 3.5HP 3000RPM / 48v 4.7HP 4200 rpm
it seems to be a recommended motor when doing a 36v to 48v upgrade that will work with our resistor carts
but i have been told that my 93 cc with stock set up will not hold up to 48v upgrade

GE D377
GE Model #5BC58JBS6334
48v 4.7HP 4200rpm
This will get you 25 mph and will work with the resistors

Some key "terms" to remember. The faster the motor will spin the fast you will go. The more volts you get to the motor the faster it spins. The more amps the motor has available the more torque it has. Motors can be wound to get these properties also.

PS: My speeds are approximate and were derived from simple math.
i found no way to turn it up or down except to incress voltage
