Default Motor advice

Ola, need some suggestions. I live in flat southern Florida and my 2015 club car precedent will only be driven on road. 48v, 3 inch lift, 14 in rims with low profile on road tires. Madjax 150 rear seat. Cart often carries 4 adults and a few kids.

I'm pretty much set on the madjax torque (navitas) 600a controller. I know it expensive but the on they fly controller will allow me to lock out kids / dumb family members quickly...

So based on the fact that I'll have that controller, 2 gauge cables & new solenoid what motor would you guys recommend? I'd like to keep regen if at all possible.

Pic of my work in progress attached...

I really like the Executioner from Plum Quick that I installed in my cart; it has been rock solid in my book....

BTW What's your tough ts on those rear seat armrest cushions?

Thanks, will it still maintain regen?

Super easy, madjax set. They come with a template and you just need a midsized metal drill bit. Took 5 minutes; kids (and adults) love them.

I am under the impression that it can as regen is a function of the controller not the motor. I questioned FSIP about turning regen back on in my cart due to really steep hills taxing the brakes. They programmed my controller with information about my cart including what motor I run...

Are the armrest base wood or plastic and are they sturdy?

In South Florida I think you would be completely happy with a AMD 7144 motor and the stock Curtis controller. I would at least replace the motor first before spending a lot of money on a controller that you don't need. I forgot you would need a speed magnet if you want to go over 20 MPH

check with David at Revolution Golf cars (site sponsor ) he got me a great price on the Madjax 600a controller, I like it for the same reasons you do and I have been talking to him about a motor as well and he advised me that the Admiral motors are very good. He can advise you on that combo motor and controller

Thank you; will definitely check with David...

Does anyone know if you can keep regen braking (and at least re charging) with any of these upgraded motors? I know plum quick says all regen braking is removed so I'll loose 1/3 of reason to have the madjax controller...

yes, you will have/keep regen braking with the Admiral motors and can adjust it using the OTF programmer , I'm pretty sure you would have it with a D&D and the AMD motors as well but I know you will have it with an Admiral motor.
