Default Motor recommendations

I sheared off one of the field coil lugs on my motor and so far haven't found anyone local that can/will repair it. So, I'm looking at other options like upgrades (maybe a Bandit) or replacement. Any experiences out there?

I don't think you can go wrong there if all you want is to replace stock, the bandit is a good option.

Can't beat plumquick IMHO...I just put my bandit in two weeks ago and couldn't be happier. Huge increase in speed and torque and GREAT customer service from those guys. A couple others from the course are already talking about shipping theirs off.

First you need to decide what you want/need to do. Do you drive where it's hilly or flat lands?

So does plumquick replace a broken lug as part of the deal? I repaired mine with shade tree mechanics and it works but been pondering the bandit.

I don't know if it makes any difference but what klanel omitted, was that he's doing a 36-48 series conversion with 700 amp controller.

Plumquick will replace the lugs for an additional $30 plus the bandit upgrade. I ended up going with a 500 amp programmable Alltrax and am in the process of converting to 48 volts. The cart is a 92 CC DS and I've posted the renovation and taking photos along the way.

I probably care more about torque than speed and live in an area that has some hills but not mountainous. I won't be on long extended hill climbs but up, down and flat. Will use at the lake to shuttle 4 people around, and use around the house for recreation and a utility vehicle. Currently has a cargo box but I may change to a folding rear seat.

Sorry about the bad info. For a while you were waffling between the 500 and the 700 and I forgot you settled on the Alltrax. Senior moment.

Is Scotty's package proving to harder or easier to install than you thought in would be?
