Default 36V CC resistor to solid state controller

Just purchased a 2001 36v CC and I need information on the easiest way to lose the resistors and convert to a solid state controller. Just don't like to have "hot wires" under my rear end! This was an exceptional find! It looks brand new and I sure don't want to mess it up!

Does anyone know where I can find schematics and instructions for this project?

PS: I want to keep it a 36v. We only use it at sports event and have no need for speed! Trying to keep the cost down as well.

Consider leaving it stock. What you have is a very inexpensive reliable (and proven) drive system. Yeh, you can change it, but it won't run any better for your use and you will have spent alot of time and $ for what?
Just my 2 cents.....

Scotty is right you have a good system now. I converted mine for the same reasons you seem to want, hot coils when driving slow. For slow cruising the controller can't be beat , no hot coils plus longer run time as you are not burning off all that juice through the resistor coils.

That's interesting to me that Club Car still used a resistor system in 2001. Didn't know that.

If you decide to convert to controller, stock units can be found fairly cheap on Ebay, or try Controller Services. They rebuild them for a decent price and for few extra bucks you can go for more amps. More amps will give you more torque, no more speed.

I'm no CC history guru but I think they only had the 36volt resistor carts as a low end model, not sure when they stopped making them. This 2001 is the newest I've heard about. My 2000 CC is 48volt and a controller cart.

Bulldog, I agree with the others that you should keep it the way it is, at least until you start having parts break down which should be a long time from now.

I read on one forum they made them for fleets, golf courses i would think. If i am remembering right they were talking an 03 cart. They were a cart at a lower price.

I also have a '97 CC that is a 48v, w/controller. It is kind of rough around the edges and has a little front body and frame damage. The '01 was so clean and such a bargain I couldn't pass it up.

The '01 was a fleet cart. Pics to follow.
