You'll love the voltage boost though

Ya, he's a really good friend. He didn't know better. I topped the batteries off when I let him borrow it and I figured there is no way they will need water for the month or so he has it. BOY WAS I WRONG! He wanted to pay for them, I told him it's not his fault he didn't know they would go dry that quick. All he knew was to charge it at night and don't turn while going fast... lol....

I chalk it up as a lesson, never underestimate the Texas summers for sucking the moisture out of the batteries!

My new charger for 48v has not showed up yet(it's in dallas, but shows it will be here tomorrow... can't wait), but I did fix my lights. After converting from 36v to 48v I hooked the lights back up and apparently I had it wrong. I thought I screwed my lights up so I just disconnected the ground wire and started touching it to different battery terminals and all of a sudden my lights came on. I checked voltage and I am getting 17.2 Volts to the lights.


Once I get my new charger and get a couple good runs on the batteries I will write a review about being a converted 36v to 48ver.

So, I couldn't wait to post an update on the cart. I've had the charger A few days now and have been enjoying the crap out of this cart as a 48V. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner...….


I will say, if you are 36v and your considering going to 48V, then do it. I went from an average cruising speed of 12mph to 16-17mph. It doesn't seem like much on paper, but it feels much more like it should. It powers up long graded hills at about 15mph compared to the used to be 8-9mph.


I attached a screen shot of my speedometer app from my last cruise last night. I probably put close to 6 miles on it last night, and on my way home I turned on the app and just watched my avg speed. A lot of this cruising on this picture was up hill. My property is on the top of a hill.

Sweet. Thatís one of the best upgrades you can do for a 36V TXT. I remember the first one I did too. Crazy difference in speed and torque.

Huge improvement in torque. It will pick the front tires about 4" up off the ground in grass from a dead stop.

subscribed! You must be burning that texas oil money or something, it'll take me 10 years to get all those upgrades afforded and still pay for retirement in 20 years, haha!

Great build thread though. I really like how you documented the failures AND the successes so those of us coming up behind you can see what makes the most differences and what to avoid.

Good looking family too! Lucky bass turd!
