Default Motor suggestions

Just picked up a 2008 precedent and installed brand new Trojan t1275’s, I plan on upgrading the switch and solenoid and getting an alltrax xct500 amp controller, looking for suggestions on motor. I had a Club Car DS with a rattlesnake 2 and would zip around at 30mph with tons of torque with 23 inch tires. I plan on running 26 inch tires with a long travel lift and I’d like to have around the same performance as my DS had. Suggestions ? All input is appreciated thank you.

30 MPH on 26" tires is a tall task to ask. You're definitely going to want a high torque motor due to the tire size. The downfall to this is that the high torque motors don't give you the RPM that a high speed motor is going to give you. However, the good news is that with a 26 inch tire you're not gonna need an extremely high RPM. I recommend the FSIP high torque motor. It's designed to run around 20 MPH with stock sized tires, which would equal about 4500 RPM. 4500 RPM on a 26" tire is going to get somewhere around 28 MPH. If your battery pack is healthy and there's nothing wrong with the cart I feel pretty comfortable in saying you'll achieve those speeds. I've been using FSIP motors a lot lately in some of my customer's builds and they all love them. Very quiet and smooth running motors. Well worth the money.

What’s the price point on that FSIP ? I could do 25 inch tires but I was kinda set on 26.

Sold the DS when I sold the house I had with a garage and moved to a house with no garage, and now I’m in a house with a garage in a city where you can drive a golf cart around town with a sticker from the city.

As mentioned, that FSIP Torque motor will yield you very good results, but also remember you had a Series cart before with the Rattlesnake and now with Your Precedent you have a Sepex cart (motor) and they are totally different styles.

Here is an excellent set-up to take a look at (Level 5 Kit) and at an excellent cost.. https://www.revolutiongolfcars.com/p...ade-kit-torque

The parts in the Level 5 kit are shared by many of us on here with the prevailing difference being the motor. I have PQ Executioners, Admiral A4, A2, some FSIP's, and upgraded stock units. The FSIP Torque I definitely like more than the Admiral A4, mainly cost and comparability, but the speed has never really been checked as it is all set up for pulling trailers and never goes over 10mph.

With 26" tires and a really strong pack, I am sure you could get to the upper 20's, but it is all dependent to how your cart is set up and how strong all the components are....
