Does anyone know what the value of the "optional Precharge resistor" which is shown on the Curtis schematics for the 1204 & 1205 series controllers. It allows a small current to bleed into the controller and thus, I presume, eliminate a slight delay in the pedal reaction when first starting off. I reconfigured my old 36 volt relay controlled cart to 48 volt solid state some time ago and still can't avoid the "jolt" when I start off. I'm assuming that the culprit is the precharge resistor, which I did not install, as I did not know the rating (in watts and ohms) of it. Anybody got a clue? The resistor goes between the battery and the foot pedal potentiometer connectors on the controller.
