We are going to use a potentiometer to control the speed of our electric motor.  A throttle cable linked to the golf cart’s gas pedal will move the potentiometer arm.  To keep the potentiometer box protected from the elements, the entire assembly will be stored in a radio shack project box.  The box will then be mounted under the golf cart’s fender away from view.
