Default Was given an 06 PQ and want it faster

I don't know much about golf carts, but was given this one in pretty good condition. It's a great golf cart, but goes a little too slow! I was hoping y'all could help me find the best solution for my needs!

First, I watched a video on a programmer called "Speed Code 5" but have also read here that they don't work for PQ cars. The post claiming that was almost a year old, so I was hoping someone could confirm for me if the programmer supports my cart now or not. I think a local dealer is offering to program it to code 4 for free, but is code 5 a noticeable difference from 4?

Also, I saw someone mention magnets, but I didn't quite understand what they were saying.. Does anyone have a brief explanation on that subject?

Finally, I used to have a high power audio system in my car. One thing that was a must was having a strong electrical backbone (such as batteries and wires) in order to get the most out of any system. I have a lot of 1/0 gauge pure copper wire laying around. Would it be of any use to replace the power wire with that wire? And when it came to getting good batteries, people turned to XS Power AGM glass-packed power cell batteries for high power delivery and long charge life. Has anyone ever tried these in a golf cart??

Thanks for any help or comments!

If that 1/0 is rigid copper wire I wouldn't use it. It needs to be flexible, otherwise it will break stuff. Welding wire is recommended. A Plum Quick motor is the best for more speed.

You should verify if your charger will support the agm batteries first. From the time on this forum many choose high ah trojans which your charger would support.

A PQ is listed as Precedent Professional it is not listed as an Excel cart; Excel carts are more costly to speed up as SC5 as well as speed magnets do not work on them. But I'm unsure what to say about the PQ as to weather or not it is an easy cart to upgrade. I'm sure someone else will chime in soon here.

As to 1/0 wire well anything bigger than 2 gauge is overkill but if it is free its hard to pass up. BUT how fine is the strand count? The finer the better. How flexible is the wire? It needs to be very limp wire. What is the insulation material made of? Is it acid resistant?

A PQ is a regular Precedent IQ.. Buy a high speed magnet and it'll override the electronic rev limiter and allow for higher speed. A Healthy cart should see 20-22 mph with a speed magnet.

I talked to a guy who said my cart should be going faster than it is. He walked me through testing for a couple of problems and I'm going to check it out tomorrow.

As for the power wire, it's 20+ feet of really nice stuff I kept from my old sound system.

How fast do you want it to go and how fast does it go now?

I want it to go as fast as possible for as cheap as possible. Yesterday my GPS speedometer said it topped out at 8mph, so we took it to a service place who agreed to look it over. I'll post back in a couple days

Sounds like the speed sensor maybe shot. Did you try the test in the Stickys?

My 06 Precedent with my old "stock" Plum Quick Motor did 26+ mph with 22" tires. My new Plum Quick motor, with a special touch by Robby got me constant 28mph+ and touched over 29 mph twice, on level ground.

If you want to do the least expensive thing, go with a High Speed Magnet for around $35. Just make sure of the type of motor in your cart first. Very easy to put on. Or do the Plum Quick motor for a reasonable price, visit PQ right here on BGW since they are one of the sponsors.
