My guess is I doubt you have a programmable controller...... If you do there will be a small round computer plug in port on the underside of the little box which houses the F&R toggle switch.
Yeah meant 6...

And of course this serial# starts with an A so i guess no programmable controller. So does that mean my only upgrade for speed on this cart would be a new motor?

Thanks for your help by the way.

First you want to verify your batteries are in good shape...
then replace the cables with 4ga welder's cable....
then get a bigger controller to get all you can out of this motor...... If those gains are not enough you are ready for a motor upgrade....
You need to all the other steps first either way see?

You the man...Educate me one more time. Bigger controller? Like this? and how would I know if this is bigger than the one I have on it.

Non-Regenerative Braking I know I would want but how many amps should a good (bigger one be)?

Here is the short version..... Motor consume amperage, batteries store amperage, Controllers are the gate valves to the horn of plenty Bigger as rated by amperage. Stock may only let 225 amps thru at any given time but after market Alltrax can be had in 300 - 650 amp models ........ now we need to know what size tires, what load, and what you intend to do with your cart including what terrain you will use it on to make a recommendation

Any one here can answer this for you

This is so great... I just drive it on Golf Cart paths. I live in Peachtree City GA which is a city with more miles of cart paths than roads it seems. I just don't want to have to wave people by me and my wife anymore. Its a four seater. I can just feel the regenerative braking and a top out in speed ( not fast) Ha.



So it has the normal tires size and I dont want to go 90 but just want a peppier ride.
