Default My first cart

I just bought my first cart and I'm looking forward to a summer of fun with it. My problem is that it is pretty slow. Its a CC 48v 06 with 07 batteries that are in good shape. My neighbor also bought the same thing but his blows mine away on the road.I can't let that happen. I dont think his has a speed chip. How do I get mine to go faster. I have heard you can reprogram something to make it faster. Is this something I can do my self or does it have to go to someone who works on carts. Thanks for any info.

ok first thing to do is load it up and go find your local dealer that has a Curtis programmer. Have them plug into the cart and determine the speed setting on it. If it's 1,2 or 3, you will have to have them order the code for speed setting 4 for that cart. Depending on the dealer, the price can vary, but the main thing is, it's alot cheaper than going with a motor/controller upgrade. Speed setting 4 (with stock 8" wheels and tires) will give you between 19.5 and 21 mph. If you are wanting to go faster than that, skip the dealer stop and go right to finding a motor/controller setup you like that will give you the most speed for the $ you are willing to spend on it.

there are many sponsers of this site (and a link to them is in the blue bar at the top of the screen) who would be more than happy to assist you in picking out a motor/controller setup for your needs. As for whether or not it is something you can do, I am afraid I can't answer that since I don't know your skill level in dealing with electrical wiring and depending on the setup you decide to go with, some can be advanced and require alot of knowledge. If you go with a simple "bolt up" setup only limited skills are required, but if for example, you converted to an AC motor setup (and those can be VERY fast when tuned right), I would let a dealer do the work.

I've been playing with an AC setup for a customer at the shop that I had tuned to just under 45 MPH. He called me up and asked me to slow it some because it was "too fast" for his neighborhood. Now it does just over 30 and he seems pleased with it. Just remember, faster usually costs more......

one question that might save you some cash is how are you going to use the cart? if its just gonna be normal use you can buy just a high speed motor that will work with your controller without any problems........doing just the motor will get you to 22 mph on level roads which isn,t bad................i have went that route on a bunch of carts the 1st one this is the 5th year for it and still going strong with no ill effect on controller but if you plan on non normal use than follow the above advice and get a controller..............rabbit is good rabbit is wise..............................
