Thanks for the response, Man... I was going to go ahead and make gregsmithequipment an offer on purchasing both a 4 post and 2 post lift to see if they would knock a couple hundred off if I purchased three (one for my popz in addition to my two), but didn't get to their showroom on time. It's about 200 miles from my house here in Montgomery, AL...

What's up everybody? It's been a while since I checked in. I've had far too many projects going on. Brought a boat, and traded it in on another motorcycle, the buggy has been wrecked and fixed, the buggy got stolen at an Auburn tailgate, and recovered the next day, etc, etc, etc...

Now that it's getting warm again, it's time to upgrade the buggy. Thinking about a 48v upgrade. Reason I'm looking at only 48v is because I'm not seeing much more speed out of the 72v or 96v upgrades. What do y'all think?

How is everyone?

Sup Mikey. The buggie is still looking good, Man. Are you upgrading your motor as well, or sticking with stock until it blows?

Just read your thread. Nice build. What did you decide on car lift. I have a two post. Much easier to work on cars with. My dad and brother have 4 post. They mainly use them for parking. Lol. And how was your cart stolen with that key. Did you drink a few too many and forget to take it out. Lol.

Thanks, Man. I really like the golf cart myself. I have had as many as 8 people on it during a tailgate, and since adding air shocks from a car on the back, no scrubbing at all.

I decided on the 4 post car lift with 2 slide jacks. The two slide jacks cost about as much as the lift itself, but I needed to be able to lift cars while on the lift from time to time. Plus, I needed the storage as well. If you look closely, you can see my $5,000 truck parked on top of my $45,000 (invested, not actual value) GTO. I hope that lift never fails. My workshop (as you can see below) is jam packed. I've added a second golf cart, a dune buggy, and another motorcycle since those pics. It's time to admit that I am a gear-head, and I have a problem.

Yeah. I was drinking when my golf cart got stolen, but honestly, it had nothing to do with my golf cart getting stolen. LOL. I was tailgating with some folks, and this guy needed a ride to his car to get his tickets to the game or something. He was too drunk to walk, so I took him to his car. On the way, I noticed my truck and trailer was about to get blocked in, so I told him I was going to move the car real quick. I didn't know him, but since he was friends with the folks that I was tailgating with (who I know very well), I figured he would be ok. Well, he moved to the drivers seat of my golf cart while I was moving my truck, and took off. The cops called me back the next day and discovered my golf cart abandoned behind a frat house. The detectives opened a case, but didn't come up with anything. I got my golf cart back in good shape minus the iPad, so I'm cool, but whoever that guy was needs to make sure I don't cross paths with him again.

Edit: Holy Big Pictures Batman!!! Sorry about that...

With all of the projects I have going on, I decided to hold off on my 48v upgrade. With the other upgrades I did over the week, I may not upgrade. I'm very happy with my current performance.

I went to Peachtree City, GA over the weekend and brought 3 sets of batteries for different golf carts I'm working on. I went to get Trojans, but the lady there gave me a VERY good deal on some Crown batteries. I did a quick search for reliability and performance of the batteries, and went with the Crowns instead (research says they have a 700 charge cycle life span). I had generic batteries in mine, and they were almost 5 years old by now, so I should hopefully be just as good or better with the Crowns...

Anyway.... Had a friend of mine come over to help me build some 2 gauge wires for my buggy. We made jumper wires, wires to the controller, solenoid, and back to the motor with 2 gauge. Afterwards, I have a consistent cruising speed of 27 mph with 400 pounds of people in it (2 grown men). It slows to only 24 on long hills, and 18 on very steep hills with 400 pounds of people in it on 21" tires and the stock motor. (Keep in mind that I have a 500 amp alltrax controller.) All in all, it holds speed allot better, and the battery pack never dips below 35v under load. Before the upgraded cables, I was seeing dips as low as 24v under load, and that was when my old batteries were newer...

Question for everyone: Should I upgrade my solenoid and f/r switch as well on a DCS cart?

I highly recommend the cable upgrade!!! If you don't want to make them yourself, call ScottyB!!!


Old vs New
