  • make-a-wish build

    well it appears that I'm about to do it again. yep my 76 club car caroche street rod will become the next victim to be used to raise a ton of cash for the Make-A-Wish foundation. now it's time to re-engineer the entire drive system and bring it into this century the schematic is the stock drive electrics. the picture of the electronic is older but still just about the same i really do not know alot about increasing performance in electric vehicles. so basically the whole system will be gone/changing. the B&M shifter will replace the F/R switch that entire bank of solenoids will have to go. the motor will get tweaked. andy told me some thing about a controller with a half speed switch that sounded interesting. i want to have both 36 and 72 volt capability in the cart. if it looks fast then it's needs to be fast then it also needs front disc brake to go with the stock hydraulic rear drum brakes so if any has any advice on parts/ manufacturers or the components please let me know

      I will talk to Robby over at PQ website and see if he will do the motor for you. He is always in on a good cause. Let me know what else I can do for the cause.

      Just a idea here. I have been wanting to try.

      Use the 5 solenoids for the F/R contactors. 2 for forward 2 for reverse. Then the 5th for main power one.
      I've been wanting to try this on a old C/C I have and just haven't gotten there yet.

          How about making it a AC cart? With the v-tech AC mod it works like a PDS EZGO the F/R is handled through the controller. Nothing to clutter up under the seat. No brushes in the motor. I like mine in the 04 PDS cart I have. It's about $2000.00 but I would think they would do better than that for the cause.
          I have there info if you would like it.

          Man you have my head spinning about all the trick stuff you could do to this thing!

              some of you have seen this already but this is the shifter that's going in the cart.B&M with lock bar believe it will just be a matter of two micro switches, one for forward and one for reverse if i use a altrax 7245 controller

                  Blake thanks for the help I'll let you know when I've figure out the component placement. I do want to try to keep this mechanic friendly. In other words some time in the future when something wears out i want an ordinary golf cart mechanic to understand what he's looking at.

                        in the Harley cart i did last year it was kept at 36 volts the picture shows the bat cables and the hd solenoids the cables will be the same size but i wont use clark fork lift parts in this one. they confused a few golf cart mechs that checked the cart uot at some of the different shows it was at. i used a curtis 400 amp contreller on that one

                            Sounds like you are going to have a lot of helpers on this one!
                            Good to hear. I'm going up to PQ next week I will talk to Robby then.
                            How long do we have to build this cart? Just wondering.
