Default Best model year club car precedent to buy?

I am looking at buying a club car precedent. What changes have been made through the years that I should be aware of? It will be for use in a golf course community if this matters.

Anything after 2008.5. You can run Six 8 volt batteries in the as opposed to four 12 volt batteries. It's a much better system. You'll have two drive systems to choose from. IQ and Excel. For a golfer, there's not a whole lot of difference between the two. The Excel will give you more motor braking down hills that the IQ will. Otherwise they're about the same.

Dave you mentioned excel system gives more down hill braking. How can I eliminate the down hill braking?

I don't believe you can completely eliminate it with either the IQ or Excel systems, but you can suppress it with a Curtis programmer.

You can not completely eliminate it with the Excel system unless you install a Plum Quick Bandit motor. The IQ system is a little more simple. A high speed magnet underneath the speed sensor on the motor will eliminate the regen braking on the IQ.

Jake you mentioned Curtis programmer. How can I acquire? Or is this unit expressly issued to only cc dealers?

I think they are only issued to dealers, and it really wouldn't be worth having as a private cart owner, as they cost hundreds...

They can be aquired new from Club Car and their dealers, but it's not really cost effective for a single cart owner, and as Jake said, they cost a pretty penny
