I'll let you know first hand real soon, I have a 36v bandit in the works as well as a 48v pack soon!

According to ScottyB's website. Cartsunlimited.net a 36v motor should have 30% more torque on 48v power and run cooler.......

Indeed! Should be interesting. I will likely run it at 36v until I get a 48v pack.

I also wanted a motor that has been gone over. My cart has a 23 yr old motor in it,

I'm in same boat. Ready to ship motor for bandit upgrade and run it on 36v till I get my 48v setup when I have more funds.
On a side note it was a mission taking out my motor. I truly had to use a crowbar and hammer to wedge and bang it out along the shaft every 1/4 inch of the way. Went out fine but I did end up slightly compressing the little coil things at edge of armature when my crow bar slipped once. I guess they can be bent back if needed. Now to figure out how to ship the old lug back to them safely and securely. When I put the motor armature back in the casing it tends to bounce around a little bit and wondering if this can scratch or hurt something in transit to PQ.

Oh, the joys of seized on motors... Had to do this with my 93, and it was not fun at all, I hurt the armature pretty bad. I'm in the process right now of taking an old 36 volt motor I have from a parts cart off of the rear end so I can clean it up a little and re-brush it and have a good 36 volt motor setting around as a spare. I might just talk my cousin into letting me bolt it up to his 48 volt cart that I keep for him though Anyhow, the casing I got off of there with no problem, but the armature is still solidly on the rear end shaft. I'm being super careful as I pry and PB Blaster the thing as I don't want to hurt the armature. Boy is it a pain to get these things off of the rear end shaft!!

Yup tell me about it. Funny thing is the case come off easy and then your left with the armature stuck on the shaft with a dangling case getting in way. Seems like the case offers no grip around the inside armature so as soon as you unbolt the screws you are stuck with managing two pieces. I basically jacked up the rear end so the axle dropped and gave me some room to slide case out of way and then I went to town trying to free the armature from the shaft as best I could with a crowbar and a hammer. You would think they might have some better tool out there that would help wedge off that motor along the shaft evenly. There is just not room to work with under there.

I had one stuck on a CC so bad one time we took the rear end out and dropped it a few inches to the concrete drive on the axle end, this popped the motor right off onto the grass next to the drive. Sort of using the rear end and gravity as a giant slide hammer... Watch your toes

Sounds crazy but we had tried everything else, and after a few tries, it worked.
