Anyone changed from DC to AC along with Lithium batteries? How was the change, happy with it? Worth it?

Going to Navitas AC on my onward was night and day, 30 mph + on stock 18.5" tires. Even with a Navitas DC controller I only get 20 mph with the stock motor. The AC also uses 20-40% less power for the same speed based on data logs in the app. And that's on lead batteries that drop to ~42v at full pedal (on AC), lithium will provide a stronger load voltage and you can go to 72v easily which would make it a rocket ship. Depends how you want to use the golf cart as to how far you want to go but I would start with the AC swap then go to lithium if you still want more.

Thanks for the responses. Been thinking about switching to lithium and now have the bug to go with AC. Might as well do it and get it over with.
