Limp mode (speed sensor failing symptom) would be about 8mph, so not sure how you got 14mph before.

A speed magnet (4 poles) would get you 19mph on a stock 2007 precedent, Doesn't the speed code 5 claims better performance than that?

Did you ever test the speed sensor by pushing the cart to simulate a roll away? I thought it was either good or bad. If bad, like Sergio said, it should only go about 8 mph.

As to the magnet, Some boast 39 mph

(39mph??) Some restrictions apply: big wheels, fully loaded, going down hill with tail wind. Speed taken right before motor exploded into hot shrapnel.

I think 19-22mph is more like the reasonable range for stock parts in optimal working and performance conditions.

With 22" tires and a stock motor with speed magnet like the one shown in this thread my cart did 22 MPH on flat cement surface with no wind issues and done in a 3/4 mile loop. No drag on my cart but it does weigh without me on it, 1,140 pounds. (Yes it was weighed on a vehicle scale when I was getting it licensed as an LSV, one of the required stips.) Also new Trojans were part of that equation.

I agree with that claim. If you double the rev limit by installing a magnet in a vehicle with a speed code (19.6 mph) you'll end up with a new rev limit of 39.2 Nowhere on that page does it say that it'll make your cart go that fast.

Look further.... The first thing on that ebay page says to read the entire page. It perfectly explains the MPH claim to a science. It states that it is a mathematical RPM possibility due to an increased rev limit. It also clearly states that you'll never see those speeds. You can set a governor on a Yugo to shut the vehicle down at 200mph, but it's still a Yugo. Speed magnets lift the rev limit higher than the vehicle can achieve, but will allow for more speed if your cart is in good enough condition to run at the factory programmed max speed. Something along the lines of what Sergio said, 19-22 mph is the normal speed for a cart with a speed magnet.

The same claim is made on that page....

"If you haven't read all of the information above, you need to. If you have, here's what to expect. For a Club Car 48 Volt vehicle with factory size 18" tires, a healthy battery pack, properly inflated tires, proper front end alignment, free spinning tires with no dragging brakes or worn hub bearings, you can expect speeds somewhere around 20-22MPH on level ground. Speed setting 2,3, and 4 will become virtually equal due to the fact that the RPM limit is far higher than the vehicle can reach due to power limitations.

FACT: This magnet is cheaper and will give you more of an increase in speed than the factory speed setting 4."

Just did some quick calcs and 14 kmh is 8 mph check your spedo and see if it's set on kph.

Something is still wrong if that cart can only do 19mph with code 5.

The code 5 guy is reprogramming my programmer. When I get it back ill post an update to see if we can get it corrected. If not on my way to Florida ill stop and see Tahoe... lol I'm sure he can figure it out.
