Besides the cost, what is the difference between the SPM (new) and AXE controller (series) from ALLTRAX? Once PQ completes the computation of the amp to heat ratio for my 97 CC DS, I can finalize the choice between a 400-600 amp controller. Waiting to purchase fuse for battery pack for I understand it should be the same amp as the controller purchased.

Side note: I spoke to Tom with Carts Plus about why the 6-1 gears didn't jump the speed up as I assumed it would, he stated the motor didn't have the torque to drive the gears... top speed is under 21 mph, on a downhill 2% grade and tail wind, I don't see how the torque issue would be in consideration since even going downhill the cart will still not exceed 21 mph. Thoughts? I am "assuming" an updated controller would resolve the "torque" shortage...

Will post update picture once I have installed the newly received LVS certification required parts, between work and college classes, garage time is sparse...

Always consult the motor manufacture for recommendation when matching a controller up a motor. This is very important as the wrong field map can burn a motor up faster than you can transfer money to your checking account.

A constant 20.4 to 20.8mph, uphill not to exceed 2% grade and downhill, when it starts to drop in speed, I know the battery pack is starting to drain, I drive it all over the Navy Base here in Norfolk, over 13 miles yesterday, it slowed to 18.4 mph as I pulled back up to parking spot to plug in for the evening. The cart is great to have on the base, being electric, I have access to piers and controlled areas where gas/diesel powered vehicles run into restrictions. Due to the 6:1 gears PQ is running all the options before I spend the money, not in a hurry. Traffic is not an issue, base speed limit on 95% of the roads 25mph, locations with higher speed limits I don’t have a need to drive in those areas, plus it seems there are stop signs about every 100 yards.

When dash arrives I will be able to mount the voltage gauge to monitor actual voltage, working on the battery box frame for the 12V battery, didn’t want to have the Speedo and radio running through a converter, it will go underneath, behind the 8V's.

I would have been happy to get 25-30 mph range to have the ability to speed up if I had to avoid an incident, maybe after more PQ # crunching.

The Navy Working Uniform (NWU) pattern vinyl wrap is standing by, after the LSV cert, I will wrap and add the Wounded Warrior and CPO decals, post pictures when finished.

I have an 1996 Club Car with a 400amp controller and a 3.75 motor. My question is how fast should it be with that combination? I just had the micro switch replaced at the potentiometer. Can the potentiometer be adjusted clockwise or counter clockwise to get the speed maxed out? Right now its only running 15mph....HELP!
