Default Club Car Precedent IQ Motor Upgrade

Does anyone have a suggestion on a good upgrade motor for a Club Car Precedent IQ? I want to increase both torque and speed. My cart will do about 21 mph right now. I want to push it close to 30mph. I also want to increase torque as much as possible for good climbing and takeoff power.

I spoke to the guy at Plumquick motors and he didn't think their motors would provide the torque I want.

Note: I have placed 2.5inch wheel spacers on the cart to provide additional stability.

Thoughts?

You're not going to get 30 miles per hour out of a motor replacement alone. It's going to require a bigger controller, bigger gauge cables throughout the entire system, and an upgraded solenoid. I can confirm that a Precedent with 23" tires on it will run low to mid 30s with a Curtis 1268 controller and a Plum Quick Executioner motor, but there are several other ways to get the same result.

Let's hear them....I'm in the same boat although I'm 4-5mph shy of 30. So what's the next step?

Just by using different motor/controller combinations. I've never seen nor sold a motor that was marketed to make a golf car run 30 miles per hour. The motor manufacturers don't want you going that fast, neither do the controller manufacturers. There are plenty of motors out there that claim mid 20s. Any good 500 amp controller should be plenty of power to get the speeds you want as long as you've got a motor capable of doing it. Like I said, I've seen it with my own eyes with the Curtis/PQ combination, but nothing leads me to believe you couldn't get the same results out of another brand of 500 amp controller.

Thanks. Yeah I know I'm going to need a more powerful controller. Also I considered the executioner but it won't provide the torque I'm after.

I have PQ Bandit motor, XCT500 controller, 400a solenoid and 2ga cables throughout in my 08 Precedent. I turned the controller down today to limit it to 30mph and it has enough torque to spin tires on concrete. I have no body on it now so I can turn around and see the motor when I gas it and I wouldn't feel good about running anymore torque because I see the torque twist. Oh and all this is on a 4x12v setup that is almost 2yrs old. David (TahoeDawg) knows his stuff and is who I bought from

Wow! I didn't think the bandit would go that fast. I thought you had to jump up to the executioner to get there.

With the right amount of power going to it, I'm not surprised. Factory motors are capable of more speed than the factory controller will allow. This also applies to aftermarket motors such as the PQ bandit. The Alltrax XCT500 Adam installed has a much higher allowed maximum speed than the OEM Curtis controller does.

I'm so impressed with the XCT500 and 400a solenoid that I'm really considering ordering them for my street cart, but pairing it with a better motor. Not because it needs it but because I like pushing limits.

Now I just need to figure a way to switch between the user profiles in the controller so it can have a slow mode, family mode and fast mode for me.
