Just found this place. I just purchased a 2005 Club Car Precedent. Don't know to much about it other than it has a chip in it. I'm already looking at new wheels and tires, maybe some decals and chrome trim. Looking forward to this forum for insite on how to make it "cool". Thanks for anyone's input. I love to tinker with stuff..........

Welcome :)

I'm curious about what you say is a chip? Are you referring to Speed Code 4 by chance to get you to the 19.6 MPH with stock tires?

Uhhhh, I guess so. The guy said it has the chip in it? It goes pretty fast so that must be it. BTW, I looked at the pics of your cart and all I can say is..awesome. I may have to pick your brain for all those mods you have done. A cart like yours is my goal.

A lot of people call it a chip but actually it's just Club Car getting a request for Speed Code 4 with your cart's serial number along with a check/money! Once the dealer gets the packet it only contains a "CODE" number that is entered into your controller using a plug in computer which changes the controller from code 1,2 or 3 to a 4. There are many folks online that have been posting for quite some time with unbelievable knowledge of carts. You’ll recognize them very soon when you see their posts throughout the threads and they are all glad to help. I'm still what most consider to be a Newbie here but I'll be glad to answer any questions that I can.

Thanks for the info. BTW again, your thoughts on wheel tire combos? I've been looking at 215/35-12 with some custom rims.

Even though almost all of my riding is on the streets I still preferred the 22" All Terrain Tires I purchased with the 11" wheels. I almost purchased 23" All Terrain Tires with 12" wheels but the wife wanted the lower height because of our dogs having to jump in and out of the cart. That included a 5" lift as opposed to the 6" lift kit I already had picked out. I'm sure there will be times when you'll need to be hitting the woods for a moment or two as well. It's a personal choice as well.

Thanks for the welcome Rusty. Boy am I learning a lot from reading these posts. What a great site for a newbie to stumble on.......I am currently in Mercedes Texas but will be heading toward Wis in a couple weeks with the Club Car. Can't wait to get it in the pole barn up north and start fussin' with it. Since we live in our rv, working on it now would be a pain. All my tools in the barn. Steve

Just remember it takes HP to turn bigger wheels and tires so while you may
pick up a little speed , You will loose hill climbing (Torque).

Have Fun !
