Default Slow this puppy down...

Need to slow our cart down some. Has anyone ever made a circuit that simply added addition resistance to the MCOR feed to the controller with a flip of a switch?

Am I dreaming... seems pretty simple.

Thanks,

M

Put a block of wood behind the go pedal.

I did spend money and I am 100% satisfied but my wife and a couple of her friends drive it around our neighborhood. The tendency to go too fast since they are not familiar with its handling could get someone hurt. I would like a switch for when I drive it and we let other folks drive it. No block of wood, that would be tacky.

Installing a switched circuit with resistance, much like the 1/2 speed reverse circuit, has been talked about before with hi-po carts. I've never done it myself, but I've seen it discussed on here before - sounds as if it'd be fairly easy to do.

If you used a 3 way switch and left the middle position dead, couldn't that be used as a kill switch for the cart? Put it in a hidden location and you've got yourself a theft prevention device.

Just thinking out loud...

Sounds like a good idea. Wonder if a broken connection could hurt MCOR or Controller?

THX,

I wouldn't think so, you're just cutting the connection between the MCOR and the controller...

Maybe the DOG could chime in, but if you put a resistor in the mix the controller may not funcation correctly.
