Default Re: 300 or 400 amp?

I got an email today and the 650a controller I ordered is out of stock. So is the 500a model. I was told it was a special order and they had sold out. Back to the drawing board.

Install the new controller first. It should be rated down to 36v and up to 48v. This way you can judge bang for the buck. Run it around at 36v and then add the extra 12v. I'm sure those volts will amaze you. Cartszone has some excellent prices and knowledgeable too.

Peak or Continuous? Peak sounds like start-up current demand, while continuous sounds like current demand under load conditions. So if you want to squeek the tires, go with peak..., if you want more pull up the hill go with continuous.

The guys are exactly right about getting the biggest controler you can afford. Once you have tasted the sweet nectar of performance and speed..., you will never be satisfied with less.

So, get the 48v solenoid, save for the best controler you can get, upgrade your entire cable set (even those going to the controler and motor), and dont forget you'll need a couple more batterie$$.

All this said and done, and from what I have learned at this site..., your stock motor should work just fine, but it's only rated at ~2.5hp so you will eventually want/need to upgrade that as well.

Peak is the max current a controller can put out for a given amount of time. This number varies with the amount of time. Continuous is the peak power a controller can put out "continuously" over an amount of time. (usually a continuous rating means 1 hour but there is no standard)

Example. An Alltrax 4844 can hold 150 amps for 1 hour but it has a peak rating of 400 amps for 30 seconds. (according to their chart)

As with any automotive performance upgrade..., there is no substitute for cubic inches.

The same can be said for electric carts..., there is no substitute for more current.
