Thanks for your input guy's. Ya'll have been a great help.
This controller was suppose to be programmed for my cart out of box and so far it has worked fairly well but I don't have the tools or software to make adjustments on my own and am now concerned that if in the future I decide to upgrade the motor, I may have other issues. I haven't made a decision between the AMD 5 or 7 hp or the D&D 11 hp at this point, but if the regen braking isn't in play any longer, that brings the PQ back into consideration. Awww!!

I retired my PQ Bandit and went with the AMD hi speed, hi torque motor. 6 HP I believe. So far I like it but maybe someday I'll out grow it like I did the PQ.

Any thoughts on why the 5 hp AMD motor cost more than the 7 hp?

A few thoughts, changing to a non-stock motor will most likely require a new motor field map loaded into your controller, so you will need to be familiar with the controller software.

Don't pay too much attention to HP, the important thing is the RPM that corresponds to that value.

You did not post the exact motors, but a 7HP 7144-motor is @ 5,106RPM, the 5HP 3294-motor is @ 3,750RPM.

Use the speed calculator in the Quick Links (top right tool bar near your name), use 12 for gear ratio, enter your tire diameter and the RPMs above where peak HP is generated.

Which calculated speed would better fit your driving requirements?

The biggest advantage of the Alltrax is easily accessible through a serial cable and the free software they give you. I loaded the program and looked at all of the variables, it is easy to maneuver and make changes. That is a big plus over the other controllers requiring a programmer to gain control of the program, so future upgrades would be easy.

Sergio - I used the speed calculator for the AMD 7144 7 hp 5106 rpm motor with my 22 inch tires, it calculated 27.9 mph, the AMD 7177 5 hp 2740 rpm calculated 14.9 mph and the D&D DD5022 11 hp @ 5100 rpm = 27.8 mph.
I assume the lowest rpm will give more torque and less speed even at less rated hp?
Do you know the rpm of the stock 3.2 hp motor on my cart?

I think last time I searched, it produced the maximum torque at around 2,000RPM. I don't know the RPM for the HP rating.

Since I have never used any of these motors myself, I will step back and follow the reviews and comments from folks actually using the motors.

It's a good thing because you wouldn't have got an answer. I asked PQ the HP rating of the Bandit motor and they wouldn't say. They say the HP rating was irrelevant.

Yea, they wind these motors to fit the requirements of each individual, probably have a few different configurations for the same motor.
