Just a quick FYI from the Curtis 1268 manual about cable routing...

No I never took one. Sorry. Sold the cart since then. If I ever do another one I'll take a picture.

Dave ... I see how you have it mounted in that picture, but where is the device with the hole in it (MCOR?) mounted? I see an empty hole in the pic where it was mounted. Thanks.

The empty hole is where the On-Board computer was located. I removed it and bought a charger that didn't require an OBC to charge. The MCOR is mounted next to the accel pedal (not shown in photo)

All right guys i have great news, I called FSIP and spoke Matt Potter today he was off yesterday, I explained to him my problem and he laughed, he said yes the GE was over heating, he tested in several times and worked on it for weeks. They have a new software patch for it. Just send it back to Fsip and they will reprogram it. He also stated the new controller for the excel cart is the Curtis that jlensi has. He said that the curtis controller in the better controller, no heat issues at all, plus you can program it if you have a curtis programmer without having to send it back to them. That's the only difference between the two. The Ge controller was all they offered last year, the curtis controller came out this year, not to mention it's cheaper than I paid for the Ge. He did say that if the controller was damaged in anyway that they will help with the repair bill. But they are designed to cut off before damage takes place, All In all the software patch will take care of the FX500 over heating problem. he said that after the patch he tested it several times and it never once over heated. Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
