Default Need a new speed motor - STAT

I blew my motor today - was totally expecting to do so, but it still sucks

Was running the Admiral, and while I overran it to cause it to blow - I'd like to try a new motor. Had a D&D in my previous cart which I did like a lot, but wanted to know of any other recommendations.

I have a TXT48 with Altrax 500 and a 400 solenoid. Mainly street and golf course driving.

Want speed and enough torque for my oversized tires, lift and rear seat.


Also need it by Thursday (4 days) - any recs you can all give I'd appreciate



Max rpmís admiral motor?

I can't help with a recommendation, but I have a D&D you can borrow if you are in a pinch.

If you want custom built you are pretty much sol. But most sponsors here have shipping locations on this coast so if it went out tomorrow you should get it in time if they have it stock.

👆👆👆 dude!! 👆👆👆

This right here epitomizes whatís so great about this BGW community.

Such a nice offer, mucho appreciato

I threw the original motor in for now, trying to have patience - donít need to be doing 35 again right away, just need to be able to play in an upcoming tournament next week. And using a rental cart really screws up my swing

Took some pics of the damage - posted on another thread as well, but going to take in the motor to a local electric motor repair shop and see what they can do.

Looks to be just the coils - 2 of 4 were toasted.

Man this thing stinks - the burn smell wills not go away.

Program the stock TXT48-V5 map in the controller for that motor or you will have 2 failed motors.

Kinda looks like it overheated and either melted or twisted the brush holder. The brush tension springs shorted to the case.

Does it run with the new motor? Kinda surprised if that didn't cook the controller.

Yea repair shop - took it to an armature builder - said armature is fine, just the brush coils fried. He thinks he can repair, so we’ll see.

Scotty and johnnie were spot on, DO NOT exceed 6000 rpm , my guinea pig didn’t last long!!

The new XCT and SR controls from Alltrax have reverse polarity protection on both the input and output. In the past this would have taken the old model Alltrax controller out. It probably would have fried any of the competition
