Default First Electric Cart--'05 G22

I just picked this up. '05 G22. Very clean, no rust. New 'Classic' 150ah batteries. XCT48300 Controller. Stock motor. Light kit with brake, signals and horn. 23-25mph on the flat, slows going up hills, but I guess that's expected.

Plans are for a 3" lift and 10" wheels. Undecided between 20" or 22" Sahara Classics. This will be a neighborhood cruiser, and not much else.

What can I expect with what I've got? What will a larger controller do for me? I'm not interested in changing the motor at this time, but Plowmans upgrades might be in the future.

With the lift and bigger tires you're gonna put more strain on the original motor. The stock motors are not so great. Your best bet is to change that out before a new controller.

Very true. Stock motor is probably at least in need of brushes. They are not very robust. Larger wheels and tires but an extra strain on the motor and controller.

Good info. I'm guessing that a 48v battery maintainer would be a good investment for the off season?

You do need something to keep your batteries charged if unattended for any period of time. A Battery Tender does the job and will pay for itself in extra battery life.

The cart is coming along nicely. I cleaned up the battery tray--it didn't need much. Zero rust on the frame. Plans are for a 3" RHOX lift and 22x10 Sahara Classics.

The batteries and the Alltrax XCT48300 are new. The motor is being replaced with a 9.5hp from Plowmans. Solenoid and cables, too.

When removing the motor. is there enough clearance between the the motor and the shock, or does the shock need to be swung out of the way?

No problem removing the motor. Put the batteries back in, mounted the converter, and drained the rear end--it was really black. Lotsa stuff showed today...
