Default What kind of top speed out of lifted carts?

I understand there are MANY factors when obtaining top speeds. I would like to keep this thread focused on lifted, oversized tire carts. What are some good average speeds everyone is getting? Mainly safe range top speeds with out putting too much strain on everything (motor, controller, axle, batteries etc..).

I'm running a 02'CC (AQ02) with DCX400, HD solenoid, 4ga cables, less then a year old batteries, 6" lift, 23" tires, rear seat, roof and STOCK motor.

What would be a good/expected top speed for this set up, 20mph-23mph? I don't have a good GPS, just a phone app that isn't too reliable.


What are you guys running and what speeds?

Thanks

At least your honest about your speeds, which are not that good. Both of you could be 25 plus with some programming changes.
Cc what speed code are you set for, your a little slow for code 4 and a little fast for code 3??

You mean like a speed code 5 programmer?

Well speed code 5 will not work on the alltrax, and yes should help the stock cart. Is the dcx programmable.

Actually, if set at code 3 that speed is not bad that's about 6 mph with just tires.

I've got code 4, I'll GPS my cart this week. I've considered getting the code 5 programmer.

I don't know why my cart is different, but with 22" tires I push 29-30 mph I did remove and install a new brush holder and had the armature commutator redone turned and groved at a local motor shop.
