Default 1990 Club Car DS Conversion

Instead of converting my 1990 to 48v, I want to convert it to a controller cart. The cart is a 1990 Club Car DS 36v V-Glide resistor cart with one selonoid. What I want to do is convert it to a controller cart and eliminate the resistor coils but using a 36v system. What is needed to do this? How expensive would this be?

1990 Club Car is probably a resistor cart also?

Here's the thing, almost $700 is a lot to spend right now. That's why I am wondering if it would be cheaper to get everything myself and figure it out.

Ok, so you will need a controller and maybe a new throttle?

Go with the ScottyB conversion. He charges you for the parts. His knowledge is free. Trust me, $700 is cheap for a conversion such as this

I think I am going to piece the kit together myself. What else do I need other than a PB-6 0-5k throttle and a controller?

I just did this, except I went to 48 after not liking the range of my 36. I went for the 700 amp controller because it is a hunting cart. To make it a reliable cart, I think you are going to need the throttle, linkage and hardware, potentiometer, controller, solenoid, 2 or 4 g cables and heavy duty F&R switch.

I am fairly new, so I cannot speak to whether you must have the solenoid, the cables and the F&R switch. However, based on what I know now, I do not know how you would get by without them.

I know it's a lot of cash, but if you go with scottyb, you will not be sorry. You will save yourself a ton of headaches. Need info? just email or call him. Need installation instructions? They are included and if not specific enough, again, just email or call him. I cannot say enough about how easy he made it for me. Yeah, I dropped some coin, but I got a great cart for far less money than I could have bought a new or used one.

If I was buying just the controller and using the V-Glide as the throttle control, would I need to buy a controller set at 0-5k or 5-0k ?

The V-Glide on your 1990 36 Volt cart doesn't have resistors in it to provide you with either of these. 36 Volt V-Glide cars didn't have controllers so these throttle frequencies were unnecessary. To answer your question, it doesn't matter as long as the controller and potentiometer match each other.
