How old are your current batteries, and what kind of shape are they in?

I'm pretty sure you need to relocate the controller so you can put one on each side, which also balances the added weight. I opted to put mine in the bagwell.

You'll need to modify your FNR, as I did. I also moved my controller and solenoid.

Easier to just put one under drivers side and the other in the bag well.

I got the idea from ScottyB, who also modified his FNR.

Scottyb has a thread somewhere on relocating the controller. IIRC, he mounted it on the frame behind the batteries. I also think I remember him saying that it was a lot of work and not worth it. However, if your batteries are only two months old, maybe itís a good option for you. Since you have a backseat, the bag well might be your best option. Maybe enclose them back there?

I wonder what kind of loss you would take if you sold them on cl. The best option for 48v, outside of lithium, is 6 8v.

That was it, it was the f/r that was a pain. Felt like I was forgetting something about that thread.

I'll take y'alls words for it. I am going to see if maybe I can pick up 2 batteries this weekend, then order the 2awg wires to the right length.

I may have to order a cheap charger for now and then upgrade to a better charger later on.


I just hope that going to 48V gets me up around 20mph... Cuz at 12.5MPH I am so disappointed in this build right now. I knew it wouldn't be a race car, but I didn't think it would be the same speed as a riding lawn mower!

It's really bugging me that my cart is so stinking slow...…

Let me ask y'all a question..... Hopefully get a lot of opinions on this question.

To upgrade to 48V right now would run me around $550.

To upgrade to the admiral MOT-B1 8hp motor is $485 +/ shipping.

Which would you do and which is going to yield the most results?
