Cool 2000 Club Car - I want more speed

I have a 2000 club car. This the newer body for that year as they switched mid year. I have determined it is a 48V series cart.
I am mechanically inclined, but know nothing about electric carts. I would like to make it to go faster, but don't want to buy a new motor or controller. Are there quicker easier ways of making the cart faster. I have seen posts for a magnet on ebay that will increase the speed if I have the right unit. I have also seen posts about removing wire from the from the selinoid. Just wondering if I am on the right path or should I spend the money on a new motor or controller?

Thanks,
Brent

Cool Re: 2000 Club Car - I want more speed

I picked this cart real cheap and it is in excellent condition. I can make 5 to 600 dollars on it easy. Would I be better off to buy an EZGO PDS. I have heard that they are much easier (speed chip) to make faster.

Thanks,
Brent

The series motor is very reliable but slow. The chips etc. are applicable to sepex motors. You can increase the speed with upgraded motor, controller, wiring and F/W reverse switch or you could fit a 36v series motor. The series motor need voltage to increase speed so 48v into a 36v motor does the trick. Has been done many times and I am sure there are readers of this forum who can telll you of their personal experiences.

the "speed" chip on a ezgo is just a plug with jumper wires that come out and go back in,, nothing fancy,,, under $10,,, they are kinda neat that you can unplug it and loan it to a friend and he can't go fast,, and then just plug it in so you can go faster,,, I have plans to extend the wires to a switch in the dash to make this easyer,,,, right now you have to remove the controler cover to get to it.

I just replaced my 2000 CC DS motor with a Bandit from Plum Quick. Previous top speed was 13 mph slowed miserably up hills. New motor with 2 ga cables now hits 19 mph and 14-15 up same hills. 10" wheels with stock size tires.
We'll pleased.

You're on the wrong path, sort of. In a series cart, amps = torque and voltage = speed. The only way you're gonna gain speed is go more voltage or get a speed motor like Csimpler has done. Putting on a higher amp controller is just going to gain you torque, maybe 1 MPH if you're lucky.

I beg to differ here. I had a stock 3.1 HP GE motor in my cart 48 volt cart added a 700 amp controller plus lift and tires and gained better then 8 mph. now granted the tires added to it to the speed increase but it didn't all come from them. Now after I fried that motor and got a PQ I was able the break into the 30's


the question is blanier how fast do you want to go and we cant tell you roughly how much it will hurt
