Default Speed Code Onward Electric

Hello,

I have a lifted 4 passenger Onward, that does 19mph.
The local dealer said they come with a speed code 3 , because they cannot exceed 20 mph

What's the highest speed code 4 or 5?

He said he can do speed code 4 and take the regen braking off which I hate

Speed code 4 is the highest from Club Car.

"Speed code 5" is the name of a "product" that does not work on the controller You have.

ohh ok, someone mentioned they goto a speed code 5

Then you have to change out the controller

What would the benefits be of doing this?

None, Speed Code 5 is an old product for OLD Controllers....

If You change the controller to an Alltrax XCT the benefits are You can program all the settings without the need for a Dealer: Speed, Torque and Regen.

Ok thanks, I asked them to remove the Regen, That's not adjustable right? It's either on or off?

Every time I take my foot off the pedal the cart stops really fast and the dogs go flying all most off our laps

Is it a good idea to have them shut the Regen off?

Since the stock drum brakes are not great, the Regen brake provides a great way to slow down and almost stop the cart.

There are a few levels of "intensity" that can be programmed, perhaps the "light" pedal UP regen brake may offer a compromise You like.

When they delivered mine I immediately had them change the regen to only kick in when lifting completely off the throttle. Huge improvement. Mine also came with speed code 4 and IIRC it would do 20 or 21 when I first got it.

FYI, you can not turn "OFF" the regen. You can turn off the "Pedal-Up-Mode", which prohibits the regen braking from taking effect "AFTER" you release the pedal. You can turn off the "Excel Braking" which prohibits the car from slowing itself down "AS" you release the pedal. But the regen braking is always going to be there to limit your top speed to a pre-determined maximum RPM within the controller. The Alltrax does the same thing, only you get to choose that RPM, within motor manufacturers specs of course. Not to mention, you'll get a nice boost of power with the Alltrax. On an Onward with a lift kit, I highly recommend the Alltrax XCT400, a minimum of 4 gauge cables throughout the power delivery system, and a minimum of a 200 amp solenoid. This will get your speeds into the mid 20s with plenty of extra torque and power in reserve.

They can also turn the regen down. Itís set pretty aggressive from the factory IMO, especially for flat FL driving.
