Default 92 club car conversion questions, new to the forum

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and cart modification world. Really enjoy reading the posts here while trying to soak up all the information.

What I have is a 36v 92 club car that was my grandmas, it has a v glide switch and resistor coils (pretty sure)

I have a high torque motor,
alltrax spm 48500 controller,
400 amp hd solenoid,
400 amp reversing contactor,
F&R club car rocker switch (for 2004-up precedent)
2ga wiring for upgrade to 48V system

The cart will be lifted with off-road tires.

I am confident I can do this with my uncles help, I just don't want to jump the gun and burn anything up. My main concern before I start is that the wiring diagrams I have don't exactly specify my cart.
- I assume we are basically just rebuilding the cart to 48v and will make some of the old components unnecessary. .. but I could be completely wrong

-Will the V glide stay? Will the resistor coils no longer be needed? I have read about the curtis pb-6, is this something I am missing that would replace the vglide? Any tips or help would be really appreciated, also any links to appropriate diagrams would be great. I can also post photos if needed.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to BGW!

Scottyb is your guy, he actually sells conversions kits for resistor carts.
The resistor coils will go, but I think the v-glide stays.

Also, we love pics!

Welcome!
You can use the V-glide to be your throttle control. Check out this conversion, page 3, which is basically what your are doing.

The Electronic V-Glide Resistors may need to be changed out to accommodate 48V, but you get the idea of how you can use the V-glide.
The Resistor Coils behind batteries go away!

PB-6 replaces V Glide in a resistor cart. and connects to a 0-5k controller. Controller replaces Resistor coils.

jakesnake I am in columbia. beau i was looking at the diagram scotter provided... it looks like it still uses the vglide... is the pb-6 necessary or is it just a higher performance part?

That kit is for a 95+. The Vglide in your 92 will not work to operate a controller, you need a pb6 or other 0-5k device.

I would contact Carts unlimited and work with them exclusively on this job.
