Default Lithium time for my Drive2

I spent a little time on the phone today with Don @ Plowman's. My cart is a mostly stock 2017 Drive2 and I don't need extreme performance or speed :)

Don said I'd be happy with the Allied Battery. I have two of the 30 amp and a Plowman's charger on the way. The original Trojan T875 are tired and I'll be happy to not have to do the battery maintenance.

Congrats on the upgrade. Going lithium was the best thing I did to the Ď01 DS I used to own.

Default Re: Lithium time for my Drive2

I am strongly considering upgrading a few things on my 2016 G29. im still on all factory electrical.

looking at Lithium upgrade, engine upgrade to gain a little speed ( 25ish ) is good for me, and probably a 500amp controller while at it.

Let me know how the lithium works out... its going to take me a while to convince the wife to let me spend that much money at one time on cart!

Cart has 6" lift with 23" all terrain tires and we ride it quite a few miles a week through the neighborhood and its starting to get a little tired as well.

I did do a 3" lift with 20" tires. Lithium seems the natural progression. I dropped a couple 12 volts in my motorhome to replace the original deep cycles in there. GAME changer!

I did receive a follow up call from Don @ Plowman's today. Allied is currently Out Of Stock on the 48V 30 A batteries. Of course, Don has some in stock. The only down side is I'll pay shipping now vice them drop-shipping from Allied. Plowman's price is still less than buying directly from Allied, so Worth it!!
