Something is definitely not right. You should be 10 mph faster. Others including myself and Scubabud have the same set up and doing 25-28mph. What speed code do you presently have? Are the batteries broken in? I would call PQ tomorrow to see if they can help.

assuming that the motor is up to par and the batteries are new, I would check the speed code. New cables will not make you faster.

Is checking the speed code something a dealer needs to do?

I don't have a PQ motor but, don't the people at PQ disconnect the regen brake? Wouldn't this not matter what the speed code is set on?

That is true, someone on this forum got the same speeds with speed code 3 and 4. No difference at all... I have a hunch speed code does not matter.

It's a pretty simple formula.... PQ cuts the speed sensor frequency in half..... Half the frequency = Double the speed.... However, a low speed setting (1 or 2) which equals 8 and 14 MPH respectively, will still equal speeds capable of making the car slow itself down (16 and 28 when doubled) It must be on 3 or 4 to completely "Eliminate" (for lack of better words) the motor braking. The do NOT "ELIMINATE" the speed sensor. Any IQ system or Excel system (ALL PRECEDENTS) will default to limp mode speed when speed sensor is not recognized by the system.

If the bearing is bad you will hear a faint squeel as if it were the brakes. Do you hear this? Most likely you will have to ship that motor to PQ to get it up to shape.
