Default upgrade

Just a stupid ? from a nubie. If I want to upgrade to 48v on my 95 medalist couldn't I just buy all new electronics for a newer 48v model & bolt it right on with new batteries? I know that takes some of the fun out of upgrades. Or is this not possible? First thing I need is to pull a hill better.I think I already have 4ga wires. I have seen on threads a 12v boost. Can I add this on the back after the controller & get what I need to pull a hill.

Default Re: upgrade

Welcome, Capn.That is one of the smarter Qs from a newb I've heard.... Basically the answer is yes. But, why settle for stock? You are gonna buy a controller so why buy stock when you could have a 480 amp? Switching to 48v is the best 'bang' for the buck, IMO. These little 36v motors respond well to the increased voltage. You have a couple of big Qs....
1. How are you going to charge 48v? A new 48v Charger or a 36 and a 12v?
2. How are you going to supply 48v? 2 additional 6v batteries ( mounted in the bagwell or..)? OR, anew set of six 8v batteries?
3. Where are you gonna find a big enough hill to run up and down !?

You can buy the newer electronics but it will probly cost you more than just buying the individual components. E-Z-GO did not come out with 48 volts until this year with the all new E-Z-GO RXV. You will have to buy everything, which includes controller, throttle, motor WITH the rear end....so I think that takes going that route out of the question.

Easiest and cheapest way would be to send your motor off to EMP-Lighting Redesign and have your motor reworked. Cost should be around $300 or so for everything including shipping.....then after that if you still want more (which you will) a controller upgrade is in order...then of coarse after that upgrade to 48 volts.

Cap if you want the most bang for the buck, stay with series motor and the most voltage you can handle. 36 to 48 is a major upgrade in speed and torque. I'm stuck at 48v, but will have 72v shortly on stock motor. Match your volts to your controller.
