Default Cart identification and upgrade compatibility

Just trying to be a cool dadÖbought a new no-name cart from a wholesale site that looked great, but runs poorly (looks exactly like a Vivid EV Peak 4L for those familiar). Attempting to make some upgrades but running into compatibility issues and looking for help on where to go next.

Original Features:
Enpower MC3818-4840 (35 pin amp seal connector)
HEPU Power 4kw AC motor w/motor brake
Enpower 12v DC converter
Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Enpower Hall-Effect style throttle
NO Resistor
NO Main Soleniod
Lift Kit w/23Ē x 10.5Ē tires

What Iíve done:
-(2) Big Battery Eagle 48v Lithium Batteries w/charger. Installed with no issues.
-Bought a Navitas 600a RXV controller due to the motor brake and 35 pin harness. Installed, cleared a few errors for the charger and motor brake wiring (thanks to the various threads on this forum), but ultimately realizing itís not the right controller for what I have due to the lack of resistor and electronic brake components.
-400a Albright solenoidÖunable to verify functionality due to controller issues.

Where Iím at now:
-Controller; looking for Navitas controller that may be compatible with the cart. Iím ok with having to rewire a harness. Iíve got all the wires traced already. Iíve looked at all of the Navitas wire diagrams, and my cart shares aspects of the Club Car Precedent, ICON, and 1268 0-5v conversion. Any recommendations based on features listed above?
-Motor; looking for possibilities in motor upgrade. Iím 95% confident the transaxle matches Club Car Precedent Graziano style transaxle.

I realize I made a mistake with the cart, but now Iím all in. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

AC motor, requires an AC controller. What's wrong with the stock controller, can you put that back in?

You'll need to figure out what is unique about the wiring of that cart, does it have charger interlock, key switches, direction switches, etc. How is the brake wired in. Take a look at a Curtis manual for basic wiring of a vehicle. You could buy a generic Curtis controller example 1234SE model, wire it up per the manual, then program the required settings using 1314 PC tool or 1313 handset, these controllers can operate the electric parking brake.

Perhaps the navitas can be reprogrammed so it doesn't need RXV wiring, you'd have to check with them.

Appreciate the feedback. I hadnít considered reprogramming, but called Navitas and they were greatÖremotely reprogrammed multiple items to bypass RXV logic. Just cleaning up some technical issues with my run/tow switch, but other than that, the cart runs great now. Thanks again!
