Limit speed of EZGO
 
We had a reconditioned motor put in our 36v EZGO and the cart now goes much faster than it used to, so we think the motor is more powerful than the original.

Even when driven carefully - moderate acceleration and well below top speed - there is a smell of "hot electrics".

Is there a way to limit the current drawn by the motor, as we don't need the top speed and we think the original wiring etc. is being stressed?

How long ago did the repair take place?
Was the cart broken at the time?
Are the wires getting hot?
When you drive the cart do you see any smoke?
Check all connections to make sure there is no loose wires.

Some upgraded motors require a controller solenoid and wiring upgrade.
There is no way to slow the motor down.
You should find out where the motor is from. Also find out what the hp and rpms are on the motor. If you have too powerful of a motor in the cart it will burn up the controller. If you had someone install the motor I would call them and tell them your concern.
