I changed it and my cart got limited to low speed operation. I would guess 10-12 mph. I switched it back since my cart is street legal.

According to the manual and to other discussions here, the 'Turf and Street' selection only has to do with the 'Rate of Acceleration' setting.

The 'Turf' setting imposes limitations regardless of how aggressive you set the 'Throttle Rate'.

Have You considered changing your 'Torque' curve rather than limiting the Motor Amps?

You can change the 'torque curve' so the torque is limited during the first 60% of pedal travel and not hit 100% until 90% travel.

That way You still will limit the current since the 'Torque' axis is roughly equivalent to percentage of 'Motor Amps', but allow You full controller current if You really want it by going WOT.

Sergio, I called alltrax a while back, told them voltage, motor,tire size, terrain, and my priorities to get their recommendations for optimal performance. Told what was in mine was how they send them out and the only suggestion they had was to increase the throttle rate. Said it would give it the sensation of more torque but not really changing it.

Bottom line, I'm willing to try anything, just don't know what i need to change anything to since I'm new at this.
I can post screenshots later on of how it's currently set if you want to offer specific suggestions.

Thanks

I have experimented with torque curve manipulation like Sergio is suggesting and i can confirm it will reign in amperage flow. But it will also reduce power in the lower part of the pedal range. You will just have to find the happy medium. Basically you take the blue torque curve and flop it horizontally. I may have a pic or I'll make one.

My thought was instead of lowering the Motor amps to 400, which would limit the Max torque ever produced to roughly 80% of the Controller 500 amp capacity, change the torque curve so at 80% throttle You have 70% torque.

Then make 98% throttle be 100% torque.

I always thought that as speed increased torque decreases.

Exponential .... tell Momma to watch out for the last half of the pedal

A little can be good. A lot can be wild.

So this change should not be a problem since it would make the cart operate considerably less jumpy than stock where 100% torque happens at about 75% throttle.

You also can not "push" torque, so while I get the humor, it is just not a realistic outcome.

Sounds like a little experimenting is in order

Sergio, attached are screenshots from my current setup. What exactly are you suggesting? May be more clear to me if you suggest the changes in the table that should be changed.

I did increase the throttle rate per Alltrax recommendation which may have been better where it was?
