Default Explain Controllers To Me

I'm relatively new to the GC world. I purchased a 2004 CC IQ several months ago and have been tricking it out, non-stop. Today I purchased a high performance motor for it. It's supposed to work like a dandy with my stock controller, but what if I want to upgrade my controller? Will that help me or hurt me? What does a controller control? I know nothing about them. Would it be adventageous to change out the controller?

Cart Info:
My cart has a 6" lift, and runs 23"s. 85% of the time it's on the pavement in my hood shuttling my kiddos to the pool. The other 15% of the time, it's at the deer lease, the beach or exploring trails.

you can still upgrade your controller, stock is about 275 amps.......depending on what you do a stock one won,t handle some upgrades you,ll just burn it up or just defeat the purpose of upgrading motors and or voltage.....like if you want to go from say 36 volts to 72 volts a 275 amp ain,t gonna cut it and stock controllers arn,t programmable where some others are ....you can program for speed or torque or both...........there are others here who know much more about them so wait for them to chime in and by the time this thread is done you,ll have all the answers you need and than some.......................

I believe what you will be looking for is at least an Alltrax 400 IQ controller as well as 4 gauge wires. Just that motor upgrade will give you the top speed and a bit more torque but that controller will launch you out of the gate much quicker with a lot more torque at low and mid speeds, especially with 23's!
