It was the Potbox. They should have all been fixed under warranty. I've seen it a few times. Although very rare. I wouldn't worry too much about it if it hasn't done it yet. They didn't run at full speed. They'd sit there and shudder like they were trying to go. If the brakes were locked they couldn't move.

Thanks, David. I'll take my lawyer off speed dial now....and I'll be a little more attentive about using the park brake from here on in. Better safe, I guess. But now you got me thinking again about using my battery money in spring to buy a Precedent instead (darnit).

So, how much is the cost to convert from regen1 to regen2?

Both technologies are dated, harder to come by - and expensive if they collapse. If your getting an absolute huge-killer deal on the cart, maybe the right question is - if I change the wiring harness and controller to IQ (and add a run/tow switch), will it fit and can I keep the Regen 1 Sepex motor? And of course, what is the cost (come to think of it, I might like to know that answer too)!!

But if the potentiometer needs changing, and the OBC - then the math just doesn't work in any case.

But - to answer you question - here's a link for someone who did it...

Don't mean to scare you at all but you can't go wrong with a Precedent. I absolutely love them.

Check around with the site sponsors. I'm sure one of them has a conversion kit. To me that's money wasted though. There's no gain in performance at all unless you use an aftermarket controller.

Hmmm....lets see....$1000 for batteries, $300 for a charger - so that's $1,650 apiece, right? I think you can cruise Craigs List and do as well, maybe. Even if you have to rent/borrow a trailer in the non-immediate area.

I did this once...

I wouldn't need to purchase chargers, I have 48v chargers from my other carts. I have my own trailer, and I have an Interstate place near me that has used batteries. So even if i had to do 4 12v in one cart and 6 6v in another, that's still at a good price because they are used.
