Default What speed should i expect?

2000 DS 48 volt fully stock

300 amp curtis controller
3.1hp OEM motor

Conditions

Flat (road)
25 mph wind gusts
Batteries 100% charged
Single person
Added weight HD leaf springs
30lbs 12 volt aux battery

Just GPS'd it and got an average of 12mph

Does that seem about right?

Havnt put new 4 gauge cables and lugs on yet, wondering what to expect after that install too?

12 mph is about what a stock club car should do.

Wind is hurting you, so is the windshield. New cables and lugs MAY help if some of yours look like this one:

I doubt you will notice much if any diff in speed , it should help with the torque though.

Gorhad,

We put a Bandit Plum Quick motor in my buddies 95 Series CC DS and went from 12ish to 18ish on a flat dirt road. We haven't tried it on pavement yet. His is rigged similar to yours and has the factory rear seat which has the enclosed sides so it isn't light. Throw his 275 butt in there and it definitely isn't light.

Good luck!
