Default Speed code question

I split this off from another post in Lifted carts to try to get a good answer. Hope that's allowed. If not, smack my hand and send me to my room.

When I go to upgrade the drive train with new motor, SC, wires, solenoid and F/R switch, will I need to have the computer set to speed code 4? Is it the Speed controller or the computer that lets me go a bit faster? I'm on 3 now and get 13 downhill with bigger tires and that's it. 12 on level ground with 23" tires. It was running at 10 with stock tires. Yeah, I want it to be able to go as fast as possible with the replacement motor. If I need to code anyway, I'll go on a get that done now. There is a resistor or something on the solenoid. Will changing that make any difference?

Just put on a High Speed Magnet for $35 and you should get 20-21 MPH, as long as your batteries, speed sensor, etc. are in good shape. Make sure you get the right magnet for the right motor. 23" tires on code 3 should be getting you 19+mph so sounds like something isn't quite right now.

First , can you push your cart freely on level ground. Second, are your tires properly inflated. With code 3 you should get 14 MPH. Before we talk magnets or motor upgrades we need to know what kind of cart you got. One last thing. How are your batteries?

CC DS S/N AQ0335-317881

Battery pack seems in great shape. Clean, serviced, about 3 years old and the pack puts out a little over 51V fully charged. Tires fully inflated. Did the speed sensor test, Alarm sounds and I get steady resistance kicking in after the first couple feet.

It got hung up in the woods the other night hauling out a deer and 2 guys climbing over a log crossing a rut uphill. Did not have the torque at first to do it and had to rack it over. Would not spin the wheels or anything.

This is, I plan on a torque motor upgrade anyway for off road work like this. Just don't know where the speed codes do their thing and If I will need that anyway when I swap out everything.

So the question still remains. If I do the motor upgrade of all parts do I still need spped code 4 programmed in to get it to run top speed? Is the "Programming" in the speed controller or the computer?

Speed Code 4 is within the Controller and would need to have a CC Dealer get the serial number off of the controller, send it in to CC in order to get Speed Code 4 codes to program within the controller. Or... just get the $35 magnet and not worry about spending those extra dollars. If you click on the link for the magnet there is an explanation on how it tricks the controller. Or... depending on who you get the motor from, it might already have a modified magnet.

What controller are you buying (from first post)?

As mentioned, a lot of motors have a modified speed magnet which may or may not be necessary depending on the controller you buy.

Also, the magnet is $20 shipped from phoenix america, which actually manufactures them.
