Default Buyers Guide for electric carts

I joined the forum looking for something like this. I put this together, maybe it will be helpful to somebody else. All the information is gleaned from cartsunlimited.net. Corrections, updates and additions would be nice.

==========

Electric Cart Buyers Guide

Series Drive System
Most basic and most reliable
Best for off-road, large tires and towing
All carts built before 1995 are series drive
Mechanical lever (not a switch) for forward/reverse
Cart is slow and high torque
Upgrades:
Higher speeds available by upgrading controller/solenoid and batteries to 48V. (Stock motor is okay)
Install larger/heavy duty:
Speed control
Solenoid
Fwd/rev switch
Battery cables
*

Sepex drive system
Not as well suited for slow, high torque use as the series drive
Electrical switch for forward/reverse
Employs a run/tow switch to cut power to the controller
Motor has two large power wires, plus a pigtail/multiconnector with small control wires
Upgrades:
Bigger speed control = more torque and more speed (stock solenoid and cables are okay)
Above 400 amps go to bigger speed control & solenoid plus bigger battery cables
Motor mapping should be tailored to the cart usage – low torque/hi speed versus hi torque/low speed
Extended slow operation with big tires or hills can overheat the motor.
