If he goes with a larger 400 amp controller will this increase the range of cart like adding HP and tourque will increases fuel mileage on combustion engine ?

I'm not a mechanic but would think the more HP you produce the more fuel you burn. The more amps you use/need the more the batteries discharge.

Adding HP and tourque (on combustion engines)increases your MPG and range.
I have a diesel truck that I downloaded a 150HP tuner to obc.
By doing this the truck now runs more effeciently because engine is working less and operating at a lower RPM to obtain same HP.
The only eception is if you add too much HP and tourque and the weight to HP ratio will be thrown out of balance and decrease MPG.


Does anyone else know ?

What you did to the truck , was change the tuning points which the Manufacturer set.
You can change it so cruising is better but loose something on low end ...etc. You can also change it to where it (May or May not meet EPA standards) you are making mods which the Dealer can not.

With Carts especially electric,
1. Add Bigger wheels - gain speed but loose low end torque.
2. Add Bigger controller - gain both torque and speed , but loose run time .
The only real gains which do not cause you to loose something on Electric Carts is
Maintanence (oiled and lubed) , Tire inflation, Increase Wire sizes to reduce heat loss.
Thats it, there is no FM(**#$% Magic) in this world Just AM(Anmost Magic).
