LOL Nice pic
For 24V conversions the preferred method is to use the uni-8 controller by 4qd. I have done this conversion here: http://www.c5owners.com/sinclair-c5-forum/topic/53/24v-conversion
Converting the C5 to 24V will mean you removing the control box/pod and replacing it with the uni-8, throttle, a cooling fan for your motor and a bunch of wiring to get it all working. Ignore the touchscreen in that link, that's just so I can see whats going on with the C5 as the POD is gone you need something to measure the voltage etc.
One thing often overlooked when wanting a faster C5 is the battery type. Although more expensive, using a light weight LifePo4 battery makes a big difference to c5 performance and hill climbing. I had a friend over last weekend to test a regular C5 with a 60Ah car battery (16KG) and then a 2.5KG 20Ah LifePo4 golf cart battery and he couldn't believe the difference in acceleration and a better speed. On top of the lighter weight it also keeps the C5 legal on the roads as you're not increasing the voltage
Downside is the cost
, but I thought it worth mentioning
