Question Lack speed with plum quick

Have a 2000 added the plumb quick motor 10" wheels 400 amp controller.

16 mph more or less, have new ranger batts.

Running voltage 47.5.

Called plum quick not much help.

Every once in while the batt lite comes on for few seconds but voltage reads same.

Any idea where to start trouble shooting, I think I should do at least 20mph ez

A series drive cart? What was your speed before the motor refresh?

Isn't that about what the website says you will get? 2-4 mph?

I once tried a Bandit (or whatever a worked over stock motor is called) in my series cart. I only got a couple of mph increase and wound up returning it.

You need to address the low battery voltage before checking performance.

If You are using the OBC to charge the cart, make sure You only have a single cable on pack negative and that it goes thru the OBC.

Well there is cable thru it yes, but when it's running not charging does that matter?

I thought that was only relevant when plugged in.
