I bought a 2002 gem car with 4 seats a few years back but just recently came across these forums. I really don’t know much about how these things work. I have a few questions to ask about my gem car
Batteries: Should I switch to lithium? I have read a few posts talking about how lithium batteries should be used in place of gel or lead batteries. I currently have 6 gel batteries that are now 2 years old. How hard is it to switch to lithium? I don’t know anything about electrical wiring so it would have to be something along the lines of plug and play.
Speed: My car only reaches 25MPH. I have a blue motor by D&D Motor Systems installed and I think it has 7ish horsepower. I have read that there is some type of Magic Magnet that does this but I’m not exactly sure what it is/how it works. As mentioned I don’t have any electrical experience, so is this something I can do myself? I would really like to see speeds of 30+.
Motor: I have a blue motor by D&D and the previous owner told me that this motor could not be used in the rain. I have searched endlessly to find something that supports this but couldn’t find anything. Is this motor safe to use in wet conditions?
Thank you in advance.
