Need help with 36V parts : Razor Dune Buggy

I just bought a new Razor dune buggy and I want to upgrade it to 36V for a upcoming Christmas present. So far all I've bought is a Currie 500w motor.

I need a controller, throttle with on/off switch built in & reverse switch. After looking at some parts on this site I need to know what parts work with each other before ordering them.

THR-136, 137 or 138

If I choose one of those throttles above will it work as an on/off switch? In the link below supports says to use a different heavy duty on/off switch but that was a couple of years ago, maybe these throttles with on/off switch built in weren't available then, not sure I'm new to Razors?

See 1/4 down the page;

Reverse Switch:


There are no specs? Will this work at 36V?

I think that's it for now. If there are better parts or if I have the wrong parts please let me know. Thanks in advance for any help!!!

In order to recommend compatible parts I need a little more information. Is the Currie motor a 24 Volt 500 Watt motor that you plan to overvolt and run at 36 Volts?

Sorry. I'll be using a 24V / 450W Currie motor. Below will be my setup;

Controller: SPD-361000B
Motor: Currie XYD-6B2 (24V / 450W)
Battery w/ 36V charger: 3x-10ah OR 15ah - I'd like to fit all 3 in the stock battery location and get 40-45mins of run time. If both will fit approximately how much more run time will the 15ah get vs. the 10ah?
- The 10ah is 5-7/8" long x 2-1/2" wide x 4-5/16" high
- The 15ah is 6" long x 3-7/8" wide x 3-3/4" high

What amp per hour charger do you suggest?

As far as wiring goes I need to find a 36V wire for the battery gauge on the throttle. The SPD-361000B has 2 misc. 36V plugs for front / brake lights so I think I'm good with using the + from one of those. How does my wiring look?


With REVERSE switch. Do you think the switch will be ok to use with the Currie motor and controller?
