Default 2011 precedent PQ motor upgrade but what controller

Good afternoon BGW. I am gonna put a plum quick bandit motor in my PH precedent. My question is I want to upgrade the controller a Lil bit and not sure what my options are. I just want to make sure I have enough torque. The cart is lifted with 23" tires.Thank you

grandpa1, call plumquick and tell them what you expect from your cart. They will help you get exactly what you need.

I would put the bandit on it, upgrade the cables to 2 gauge and see how your torque is at that point. If you're unhappy then you can upgrade the controller and solenoid. Everyone has different expectations, so I gree make the call and explain what your wanting. When i upgraded my cables that was the first upgrade, I noticed more torque, nothing else.

I will just add that it is extremely important that you tell them you have an Excel Precedent.
That will have an impact on how they rework the motor, your controller choices and the amount of adaptation You will need to do to integrate it into your cart.

Nothing wrong with the advise your receiving here.... Be sure to make mention to Plum Quick that your upgrading an Excel cart so that they handle wiring your motor correctly. Make the upgrade from number 6 to at least number 4 cables or even better send another 20 bucks and super-size that happy meal to a number 2 set of cables; you can't go wrong with money well spent. If you them want to upgrade your controller I'd say your best calling FSIP and speaking to them with your needs. I went with the Curtis Sepex 500 amp controller kit from them and I'm very pleased with my Excel cart now. They will ask for specific info so they will know how to program the controller to match your equipment and needs. The Curtis 1268 controller adapts well into these carts and is a fairly straight forward install.

I have a controller that has been bumped to 400 amps by CTS (FSIP competitor) Will let everyone know how it turns out. Gone try it on a stock motor with magnet change, a admiral motor also hope to try a plum quick.
