Default New guy wants more speed

I recently purchased a 2011 Club Car Precedent I2 Excel with a PH serial number. I have searched for hours for speed upgrades and feel like I am no better off. What is the "best" way for me to get more speed out of the cart?
Thanks

Then you have not searched very well at all....

Lets start with budget and how much speed you would like.

For a hundred bucks you can get right close to 19/20 MPH with the install at a service shop of Speed Code 4

Or save your 100 spot and fork out 225.ish and have Plum Quick rebuild your stock motor into a BANDIT motor and you will see 22/25 with little else than a strong battery bank.

Very often a little more speed can be found in 4 to 2 gauge cables and HD solenoid...

If you want more than 25ish then start digging a bit deeper for HP motors and controllers as well as big cables and solenoid.

Keep in mind that it all starts at the batteries so a strong well maintained pack it the heart of your beast....

I guess I should have said "I researched about something I know nothing about". I really appreciate the info. Looks like I will be taking the motor and getting a Plum Quick BANDIT soon.

I just started my first cart build, have been reading and researching everything I can get my hands on. No pro by any means BUT, I have noticed quite a bit of difference by adding a "speed magnet" was $17 and it helps with the auto braking and up hill. I also bought a speed code 5, it was $160 but figured if it runs $100+ to get a dealer to program speed code 4 then a few more dollars to do code 5 and be able to go back to a slower setting if I want, whenever, then why not just tried it this evening and I'm not sure what code I was on before but wow, it was a noticeable difference

I just installed a Plum Quick Bandit in my cart, very happy with it and Rick was great to work with.

Speed Magnets do not work on Excel carts... Speed Code 5 does not work on Excel carts... Carts with serial number starting with PH are Excel carts...

Well, live and learn. As stated, I'm no pro.
Just what has worked so far on mine
