Default Motor Questions...

I have a 1988 CC w/ resistors (5 solenoids) and I want to change the motor. Has anyone heard or changed to a Beast of other motors without converting over a controller? What would it hurt if you ran one of these newer motors without a controller? I know a main issue would be the dissipation of heat but is there any way to add some sort of cooling system ( ie: fan ) to the resistor coils so the extreme heat wouldn't destroy them over a period of time?

At worst case senario, You would burn out one of the resistors and or one of the solenoids. Depending on the size battery cables and condition, you may fry one of them also.

Personally I would just bump it to 48 volts. You`d be surprised at what will happen. The torque and speed you get....!!!

It's already running on 48 volts. I went with 25" tires and I'm looking to get my torque back. I just hated to go through the expense of converting to a controller if I didn't need to.

I went that way on my 90 cc, 48 6 in. lift 23 in. tires. No torque to speak of. Went to pot and controller, got the torque back. I am only running a 300 amp controller. It would be a lot better with a higher amp one.
