Talking Alltrax Controller Programming for Precedent

I am new to the forum. I was able to find alot of good ideas about how to program the Alltrax DCX 500 for my Precedent. The shop that built my cart had not done a good job of selecting the right settings and resulted in a rough and jerky throttle. Because I like to tinker, I chose not to bring it back, but to do it myself. I would like to thank the folks who posted all the good advise that I was able to use. What follows is the settings I used and the cart configuration for reference. Hopefully, someone else may find it useful

2007 Precedent - 6" Lift Kit w/ 23" Tires - Back Seat
Alltrax DCX500 - D&D 12HP Torque & Speed Motor - Upgraded Wires, Solenoid, etc.

Settings:
High Pedal Disable: On - Was set already
Plug Brake: Off - Was set already
Turbo: On - Was set already, results in 22mph
1/2 Speed Reverse: On - With Off the cart almost smokes the tires
Max Output: 100 - Full speed ahead
Under Volt: 26 - Was set already
Over Volt: 57 - Was set already
Throttle Up Rate: 8 - Seems to work well with Linear Throttle
Throttle Down Rate: 12 - Chosen based on postings and Alltrax guidance
Brake Current: 65 - Was set already
Sensor Type: Club Car 5K-0 - Was set already
Throttle Response: Linear - Had been set to a custom curve that produced a severely jerky response after 40% throttle w/ no response. This setting combined with the Up Rate of 8 produces a fairly smooth throttle up when slow pressing the Go pedal, but provides a serious kick when you mash it to the floor!

You need to take the break current down to 0%. When you let off the throttle it should roll freely. You will blow the motor if you leave it like it is.

Wink Re: Alltrax Controller Programming for Precedent

Thx for the info on the brake current. I was curious about that. I had heard these upgraded motors did not do regen braking and indeed I cannot detect any braking taking place.

LgBarne

when you upgraded your motor and wires....did yoou have any trouble pulling a heaver wire thru the on board computer (the charging controller ) what size wires did you use..and where di you buy it...

I priced out #4 battery cable at an electrical supply house told me only 25' rolls for about $500.....thats nuts

For Bruce,

Thanks... The cart and all the upgrades were done by Gulf Coast Golf Carts in Pass Christian, MS. I wanted to go electric for a hunting vehicle to replace my 2006 Yamaha Kodiak ATV. The lease I am on has some good hills to climb, so wanted to upgrade the motor, etc. This is what they put in as part of the package. Was going to go with plain black wheels but the savings was only 200$ so opted for the cooler looking wheels. Debated using mud tires, but supposed we could use the cart around the neighborhood in off season, so got the all terain tires, for now. The torque for the motor is impressive, so far, though have not taken out to the lease yet. As far as the 4 gauge wires, they seem to fit well, but cannot comment on how difficult they were to install or their individual cost.

Check eBay for cables . . there are a few people selling pre-fab cable sets for carts at reasonable prices . . I bought a set for my 99 CC and they were very nice, with finished sealed ends . . .
