Default 36v top speed

I’m sure this has been discussed before but I couldn’t find it in the search option. My question is about top speed with a stock 36v CC. I took my cart and the GPS out yesterday and clocked its speed on a soft flat dirt road at 16.9 MPH! Is this normal or do I have a fast cart? I’ll take it on a paved road soon and report back but I think it should pick-up a little.

Default Re: 36v top speed

My 1997 CC 36V with VGlide resistor type speed control would only do 12-13 on paved road. I went to 48V and heavy duty solenoid and 4 gauge wires, and now my top speed is 17-18 mph. the wires made no difference in the speed, but from all the posts here it was reccomended for safety reasons as the old ones which were 6 gauge had the potential of getting too warm...and I feel better now its done because its not a concern that was always in my mind when driving around.
I want a little more speed but my wallet needs to recover a bit

When I use my GPS, (Garmin 660 & Garmin 650,) I constantly reset the Max Speed and always watch the current speed. Even though I've gotten 21.3 MPH on my GPS I know that my actual, constant and can always count on top speed is really 20.4 MPH. I also noticed that sometimes when I hit a bump my GPS might register a bit higher just like it might register some movement even when standing still. So my question is was that your max reading? What is your constant reading, something that might be the same going and coming up the same road?

Also today I'm expecting my PQ Motor and hopefully I'll be able to say I get 25+ MPH after it's installed.

That was my max reading but I did watch constant and it stayed near the same, both ways on the road also. I might try tonight on a paved road to see what the Difference is.

Just got back from running a smooth even paved road, holding the GPS on the seat with no vibration it did 17.5 MPH. I have a good GPS that I use on my airboat and know it works great. Do you guys think it might go a little faster after I mount the new 23x10.5x12 tires? Hopefully they won’t bog it down too much, not many hills around here just a lot of sand.

You're very lucky to have a stock CC going that fast!

Congratulations!

I found when I added a 6" lift and 22" tires I gained a few mph on the top end and lost quite a bit on the hills.
