72v ? no ... you need heavy duty cables, solenoid, F/R switch, and upgraded controller

Yea I figured things would have to be upgraded. I was just curious to what I was starting with.

To Crash's list of things, I'd add a 72 volt charger. Be forewarned that the charger, controller, F/R, solenoid, and cables, not to mention the batteries, won't be cheap. You'll also (I think) have to modify the battery trays a little as 12 volt golf cart batteries are larger.

Does the solenoid have to match the controller's amp rateing? 400 amp solenoid, 400 amp controller? If I were to stay at 48v which things can be upgraded over time and what needs to be replaced together with other parts. Example, new motor and new controller but wait on solenoid and F/R switch? You get the point.

the solenoid should match or exceed amp rating
upgrading means all at once ... this is not a cheap fix this is an investment

put it this way you got a pipe line and joints that are 1" in diameter but outlet is 1'
if you replace the pipe with 1' pipe you still have 1" joints ...

I gotcha. I t might take me a little while longer to afford it all but I'd rather do it right the first time and be content. Don't wanna be wanting more when I'm finished. What's your opinion of the 72v system? Keep getting mixed reviews.

uh oh ... someone made the mistake of asking me my opinion !!!
72v ? not worth the cost ... if you want all that torque and distance get a mule or gator side by side
one thing i really think you need to do is try your cart the way it is ...it might surprise you
