Default Options for Club Car Precedent PD mod to 20+ speed

Hi all,

Hoping for some friendly advice on a fairly common question... I feel the need for speed! Well, actually, the state of Florida and a few noisy neighbors have me trying to convert my cart to a low speed vehicle so I can legally drive it to the community pool, etc.

I have a 2013 Club Car Precedent. Serial is PD1309-... Buggiesunlimited document describes this as a Precedent I2L Excel. It has original motor and controller, speed code 4, 48V batteries, stock wheels. Best I have seen is 19 mph. I'd prefer to actually have it over 20 mph to satisfy inspection guy, although not entirely sure they'll actually speed test it.

I was hoping for the quick magnet fix, but previous threads indicate no dice for an Excel cart. Looking for recommendations on how to proceed. Is a controller my only option? Prefer to keep the wheels/tires stock.

Thanks for the help!

A controller will definitely get you over 20mph. It can also add multiple levels of performance this is great if you have kids that may use the cart. I would suggest going with at least a 400 or 500amp controller. The cost isnt going to be that much more and will open you up to a world of aftermarket motors if and when you would ever decide to upgrade.

My experience is limited to alltrax controllers but the level of access to all of the settings is awesome and easily understood with a bit of reading. You could set it up to be as mild as the stock controller and only gain speed or you can set it up to peel tire. Completely up to you.

I would suggest reading up on a few controller options and see if you feel its worth the money or not. As far as keeping the stock controller and making it faster I'm not sure. I've read what could be hoax posts about speed codes 5 and maybe even 6 if memory serves me right. I've never flashed a stock controller I have no idea what they are capable of. Hopefully Pingeye or Sergio will comment with info on the OEM controllers.

I just put the 300 amp alltrax in my otherwise stock precedent and can get 23.5 mph on flat ground, seen 24 down the small hills in my hood. Batteries are brand new with 2 gage wires as well.

Yeah, an Alltrax XCT will give you what you need and is the best bang for your buck in regards to amperage and speed with your own controlability. David at Revolution Golf Cars will have the products and service to get you there.

Thanks. I recommend our level 3 package. Speeds will be around 24-26 MPH on stock tires and near 30 MPH on a lifted cart with 23" tires. Acceleration will be firm and strong. The ability to maintain speed while climbing an incline (yes I know, there's no hills in Florida) will be tremendous and you will not experience much speed loss on a hill unless it's really steep.
