You might find this useful

The CE indicates that you've got a Champion's Edition vehicle. This is the same as the Precedent "Professional" (IQ-System) but includes pinstriping, comfort grip steering wheel, and 10" Wheels.

Brushpupl,...sorry for all the delay but I just got back from 3 weeks in Palm Desert just playing golf, eating out, and laying around in the sun. Doesn't get much better than that. Now that i'm home I can report that i've used my 12 volt car charger to "Equalize" the Interstate batteries and after using them and re-charging them several times they are now working better than my other two Trojans. The performance on the golf course is now MUCH better and the speed is decent but not tops. It always comes down to "The weakest Cell in the Weakest battery". The cart will do 18 holes and get me home not problem. Once I recharge with the CC charger the batteries are back up to 12.7 the next day. So the used Interstate batteries are doing fine. However they still don't want to take a FULL charge. The battery will real 12.7 volts but only one or two cells will be in the Green and the rest will be in the middle of the white. On both the other Trojans they each have one poor cell (which is not real bad) and 5 good ones. The problem is always that it is that one cell that won't pass the full current and therefore the high end speed and power is alway missing. I have found that if I charge then after use and then charge them all again early in the morning before my round of golf, they perform great. The 2nd charge only takes a couple of hours so I'm good to go at about 11:00am. This is not a problem since I live in "Camalot" and we have a standing rule,.."Golf will only start at 11:00 Am". The other day the golf course "Super" called a "Frost Delay" so our golf started at 12:00 which made us late for the free food in the bar at the end of our round,..so we had to hang him from a tree and beat some sense into his head. It won't happen again.

Last fall I broke down and replaced my 12v batteries, went with the interstates... I havent used the cart much yet this year as I live in NE Ohio. Reading all this, I hope they last. Wondering if I should have done the conversion to 6 -8 volts. I guess time will tell.

Kirt,... The insterstate batteries that I recovered from the trash bin are now working fine. I only got two,..and I thing they were to good ones out of a group of four that someone returned. Everyone will tell you that "You just can't replace "1" battery as it will unbalance the charging". This is true if you put a brand new battery in a group of 3 old batteries. However, what I did was put an old battery in a group of old batteries. I also use my "Fantastic Vector Car charger" to bring the old batteries back up to decent charge levels by doing three different sessions of charging on each battery. 1. 24 Hours of "Desulfating". 2. 24 hours of "Equaliztion at 10 amps". 3. 10 Amp charge decreasing down to 2.4 amp trickle charge. All of this is not going to make them 100% again,..it just lets me get the max performance out of them.

I'm glad you are doing this test on Interstate and please keep us posted. By the way,..the worst thing you can do is just let your cart set. You need to be using it and recharging it,..otherwise the sulfate on the plates will just continue to grow.

thanks trigger, not sure what I can do about the sitting though, we had a pretty mild winter up here this year and I still had to leave it sit most of the time for the last 5 months. We use it just about evedy weekend in the summer, still no comparison to a cart that is doing eightteen holes every day or even multiple times a day. time will tell, I will keep you posted!

switch out speed magnet. if the end of motor has a large cap on the end it is easy install. if it is a flat sensor at motor end it can be a pain in the rear. speedy link is for the birds...

I got mine at o'reileys..
