PQ reworked my motor in 2007 and when I upgraded to 48v I got a 30% increase in speed and a bunch of torque. I love it. I'll soon be getting a D-395 from them.

Redrider we got off your topic...again

Back to your controller question. Im no expert but here's what I feel you may want to consider. A 48V pack has been said to be able to deliver no more than 500Amps, true or not?? But anyway you say you are running 54V I think it said, so you are now over the 500A mark anyway. Also you are lugging around those 23" tires which are a lot of work to turn..so again a lot of work required by your controller and extra heat. So what I think from lots of reading out here and a little personal experience you "may" overwork a 500 Amp controller and send it into temporary thermal shutdown, but a 700A controller would be safer and handle the demands of your setup. If you have 23's chances are you will be playing a little offroad with hills and sand/dirt. A lot of strain to turn those tires.

Also as you can see in the post right above this one---Otters running a PQ motor with 23's and is using a 650 Amp controller so in the 650 to 700 range(check prices probably not much difference) is what you want

sorry for getting off topic for a bit

thanks for the reply OX

one thing i will say is just adding the 2g cables belped alot

and running 52v gives just a little more speed but not much

all i want to do is beat my buddys G19

and show all my friends with rhinos that a golf cart can hold its own

i would still like to hear from more who have a purple motor

cant wait till mine gets here

guess ill see how much punnishment the stock motor will take till it goes boom

BTW how do i post pics?

nice golf quad you have there...

AS i suspected you are in the dirt

If you are still running the stock controller, you will be very happy with a new highamp controller..thats where the power/torque comes from.

What is your battery setup? 6 eight volts? Are you stating that after a charge you have 52 volts to use? Just curious how you got those 4 extra volts...

With a 48 volt pack your charged voltage should be at least 50.6. My pack settles down to 51.1 after 2 days of sitting.
