We hope everyone enjoyed their holiday Monday and that everyone took some time to remember the people who gave their lives so that we could live freely in this amazing country!
We are back with the hybrid build and it is coming along great. We want this cart to be a real workhorse so we are adding some cool options, follow along!
With the hybrid end of things all mounted up it was time to move onto the electric end of things. We went with a small upgrade in the controller area with an Alltrax controller, we wanted this mainly to allow for more control over throttle and braking settings.
Here you can see the Alltrax controller installed back in it’s factory location.
We wanted this custom Precedent to have the ability to be used for many different applications. So we designed a front hitch to allow for many things to be added to the front of the cart.
With the front hitch tacked together we did a test fit.
Once we were happy with how the front hitch mounted on the Club Car Precedent frame we final welded it.
No workhorse is complete without a winch. Here we are test fitting the winch onto our custom made front hitch.
We removed the winch and hitch setup, final welded it and prepped and painting it. While we were waiting for the paint to dry we decided to run the winch wiring.
For this custom electric buggy we chose to go with a winch that offered both wired and wireless controls. This works great when you are out of the cart and need to use the winch to drag trees or get yourself out of a pickle, you simply bring your remote along and you can control everything from the touch of a button! It does involve a bit more wiring, as you can see!
With the wiring done it gave the paint enough time to dry so we were able to mount our hitch/winch setup to the front of this Club Car Precedent.
One of the things we are going to do with this cart is plow snow! So we needed to make a custom plow mount that worked with our new hitch mount. Here we are turning some custom bushings on our lathe.
Here we have the plow mount tube with the machined bushings installed.
We welded on the mounting brackets to our plow tube mount and secured it to our hitch mount.
We then moved onto the plow mount brackets. For this we used some very thick aluminum flat bar. We used the plow brackets as a pattern and drilled out the plates.
With a bit of machine work, our Club Car Precedent plow mount is starting to look good!
It was back to the lathe to machine some wear bushings for the Precedent plow mount.
We welded the wear bushings into the plow mount brackets and secured them to the plow.
All that was left to do was slide the mounting pin through the plow brackets and tube mount, and secure with the locking nuts.
With a bit of power supplied to the winch we were able to test the function of the Club Car Precedent plow setup…it works awesome!
We installed the custom steering wheel and went with a black steering wheel adapter to match the freshly painted steering column.
Next we installed the front underbody and carbon dash!
There is still plenty to come with this build so be sure to check back next week! You never know what we are going to be posting.
