07 CC Precedent PQ Bandit results + question
My 8 month old dauther bought (and installed) me a PQ Bandit for my 2007 CC Precedent. This is my first child and had I known they come baring such cool gifts I would have started a family years ago. (my wife is awesome)
What can I say...it was a good fathers day.
Let me preface my next comments by saying my cart was locked in at 14 mph on speed code 3. Up/down/round and round didn't matter....14 mph. I'm running stock wheels and tires. Cart is stock except rear seat kit and long roof.
The Bandit motor is well worth the SMALL retail price. I use my cart around my community and it's mostly rollers. Not too many big hills but not flat either. False flats everywhere. The Bandit does more than it's job on the flats and slighty down hills. On relatively flat streets it's about 23-25 mph. Even the smallest down hill and it's 27-30 mph. No regen rocks!! For the money I am more than exstatic about this motor.
That said, (and I hate to even say it cause the guys at PQ are the BEST) I don't feel like the torque changed at all. On even the slightest uphills the cart slows down to about 15 mph (even with a 25 mph running start at them) and on decent uphills slower yet. Had I not gone into the motor swapping believing the PQ guys are way ahead of the service and performance game I wouldn't even think to mention this.
But when I read this motor will provide 30% more torque I expected more on the slight uphills. However, let me say it again...for $225 YOU CAN NOT BEAT THE BANDIT! I would do (and will) business with Plum Quick again. I won't recommend another company for aftermarket motors period. Everone says it and it's true...they have the best customer service you could ask for.
My question is:
How can I stabalize my cart for the higher speeds? At 23 mph and up the cart will grab the slight ridge lines in the streets and pull the cart side to side. At 14 mph you barely notice it but at 30 mph it **** near feels like it's going to high side the cart. I know it's more stable than it feels because when I hit pot holes or man hole covers it does nothing. Just not confidence inspiring.
Will going to a 12" wheel and low profile tire make a big difference? Suspension parts?? I want to keep the stock ride height.
Thanks and thanks to the boys at Plum Quick....please send them your motor business!
For the speed critics....no I do not go that fast with my family in the cart. 20 mph + is for Dad only.
