No one swayed him.

He swayed all by himself!

I just got to thinking and Andy is right.the 650 is overkill for what I want the cart to do.I've already got another cart to build so maybe ill go with the 650 next time.

colbyc1984,

I think you will be more than happy with it. I haven't had one issue with mine yet. We made some pretty good hills to and pulled the sled at the CAW with no problems. I didn't melt off a battery terminal either.

I built the one for the Mud buggie and it's still going today. Back in 2005 had no problems what so ever with it.


Here are some I built.



Left side is stock. Right side is what I use pure copper


You can send me yours and I'll build it are I'll send you a new one. Mine have all new parts installed. If I build yours it may have all new parts also if once I get it and decided new would be better.

Cool Re: Xtreme Voltage components

A couple of us were talking this weekend at the CAW ride about all the mud getting in the battery compartment. The heavy duty contactors and such. I had to go to oriley's to pick up a 12 volt volt meter for a friends cart.
I bought a replacement air cleaner pre filter and cut it in 1/2.





Blake80 was the one who mentioned it first so he get's credit for it.
I'm hoping it want catch fire when getting hot.
If it does I know who to blame anyway!

Great write up Andy. I’m considering 72V within the next year or two, mainly when my current batteries give out. Hope you don’t mind me asking you a few questions:
1: Did you run 72V on a stock series motor?
2: I’ve seen several post and videos of your cart. In other post you said that your cart went everywhere the 4X4s did but not as fast? I thought that Volts gave you speed?
3: About how much run time would you get out of the nine 8V?
Thanks

Wink Re: Xtreme Voltage components

My 72 volt cart was built for torque not speed. It runs 24MPH which is plenty fast enough on the trail's. I got 32 miles out of it at the CAW riding trail's. I rode all day.
I had PQ build me a high torque motor for it. It's not a good idea to run 72 volts on a stock motor or a Bandit. Chevy burnt his up at the CAW in March. He had a Bandit motor.
