Cool. Understood.

Thanks

Thanks Dawg! I would like to get that done, but don't want to drive my cart an 2hrs away though... any other way? It is very important that i do not lose any torque or the pedal-up braking, i think the speedylink thing disables regen.

There's a way to go to the Curtis website and download their programming software for a PC but I'm not knowledgeable enough on a computer to have a clue how to do it.

One would need the proper programmer and the proper code to input . . . not sure if CC dealer would provide the code over the phone or not . . . you could call and ask them, I guess . . . they may "need" to see cart to verify controller serial number to obtain code from CC to make sure you/I don't misread it and get wrong code . . . wrong code attempts result in controller lock up . . .

I say keep your $100+ and apply that towards a high performance motor. You will gain speed, some torque and be able to keep your regen braking. New high speed motors are not expensive and a better investment than $100+ spent on a software update. Plus, your cart will run well over 20mph

Steve, sounds like your setup is what i am going after, 3"lift 20"tires, i did not realize there were upgrade motors out there that did not disable regen. I just saw the the PQ disabled regen so assume that was standard. What kind of torque increase did you see with that commander motor?? I am only looking for a tad more speed but could really use more torque, my community is ALL HILLS, no flat...

warm,
This is where the experts should chime in: My commander is great, but not much torque. I'm saving for an Alltrax DCX500, HP soleinoid and 2 gage wires. Those components will greatly increase my torque by adding amps. With any luck, enough to burn a little rubber. There is a trade off with motors: low torque/fast, high torque/slow. I'm attempting to put more amps through a low torque/fast motor to give it more torque and retain the speed.

It sounds to me you made need a bigger controller and wires. (400 amps/4 gage wires) or go my route (500/2gage) You could prolly keep your motor, if it's fast enough. I believe the Alltrax programmable contollers allow regen braking, but I'm not too sure. It will give you more speed as well, prolly around 19-21mph?? If you find you want more speed, then put a new motor in. You may get around 25-30mph+
Good luck,
Steve

Yeah, I really only need more torque, for these hills. In all honesty i do not need to much faster then 18-19 with my young kids on the back. I will have to do a search to see what i can find on a motor or controller for adding the torque i want without loosing the regen.

Steve, I just pick up my 3"lift, 20/10/10 saharas, hd leafs for rear, today and already installed the lift on the rear and HD (four pack) leafs, it lifted the rear way more then i anticipated, i was going more for the look in your pic. i must have 5+ inches between the top of the tire and the fender! Do you have the HD leafs on your? I realize the thicker leaf pack would add an extra inch right there but man it looks like way more then that...
