Default Re: 1990 Club Car DS Conversion

Instead of getting a seperate potentiometer, I have the intent of using the V-Glide as the throttle control as Club Car manufactured the 36v controller carts between 89-03.

Club Car only built a 36 Volt controller cart for a year and a half actually. 1993-1994. Everything else was V-Glide/Resistor. In the case that you were to find one of these V-Glides, the frequency would be 0-5K

So the V-Glide that's on there now wouldn't work?

Not unless you've got a controller on your cart already, and with it being a 1990 model it shouldn't have one.

If I put a controller on the cart would the V-Glide work?

I'm using the stock V-Glide on my 93, and yes it is 0-5k. I didn't know they only made the controller carts in 36 volt for that short of a time period. Since they're relatively rare, it's a good thing I have 3

The back of the V-Glide for one of the 93-94 36V controller carts has resistors stepped off on it.

With good enough pictures of a V-Glide from a 36 volt controller cart, some resistors, and a some math, couldn't you convert the resistor coil type V-Glide over to one that would work with a controller?

The simple answer is yes. You can convert a standard V glide into a multi-step potentiometer such as CC used in 93-94. Nivel sells a kit #6344 list is $140 for the conversion.
