I thought to myself as I was typing earlier, "Dang I wish I had that coil diagram of CTD's to attach here."

Wow u guys know some stuff!! This is all great info. After driving the cart a bit here is what I have noticed...when starting out it is very smooth and then you can feel a slight kick and it really takes off. Like it hits another gear. But this thing has no torque. Going up hills is very slow but on level ground it will move.

Also what about this coil getting red/hot...normal thing?

And now that we have some info could this motor have been "turned down"?

coils have the sheld over them because they do get hot .. as for red hot ? never seen mine do that but never really looked eather

you may need to clean the V-Glide .. i use some emery cloth and "shine" them up


yep our carts do great on flat ground but bad on hills .. but are ez to fix

i have found no way to turn motor up or down

Seems your cart acts pretty normal, but I agree that you may wanna clean the Vglide. While you're in there, make sure the wiper goes all the way up on the contacts when the pedal is all the way down.

as you push the "gas" pedal down the wiper brush rises on the v-glide
what he is saying is make sure you have full movement in the assembly

Once again...cant tell you how much you guys are helping me.
So I looked at the V-Glide and it is pretty clean but I am going to give it a wipe down.
When I pushed the gas pedal it slid very easily up to the very last contact and on the last one it sticks a little and only covers about 1/2 of the contact. I can pull the slide out a little and it then goes up a bit farther on the contact. Looks like it is rubbing on that contact a little as there is a little wear on the last one.

Also for Crash test dummy...you say you have a cart with this type of motor and you really like it...I really did no research like I usually do and kind of bought on a whim...you think I did good with this model I take it??

Just out of curiosity lets say his v-glide is a little dirty if he was to polish it up some more would that help a bit with more speed from motor? ;) I'm going to go check my V Glide!
