Default Increase speed in club car DS

I have a stock 2002 club car DS series(non IQ) cart and I did upgrade to a plum quick bandit motor last year. Now that golf season is over I am looking to increase the torque and ground speed - primarily for commutes to and from the course. The batteries all appear to be holding on and have proper voltage readings as mentioned in buggies unlimited forum. I am somewhat confused as the next step to increase speed. Options I have heard are the following:
. Upgrade to a better controller
. Upgrade to better wires
. Increase wheel and tire size from 8" to 10 or 12 (not really looking to lift the cart yet)
. Linkage - there was some wear on the connection from pedal to acc linkage and I tightened this up by slipping a brass fitting over the cam/pin. Should there be other linkage changes or maintenance I can do.

In the general I am getting average speed but get blown away by the CC Precedent models.
Any suggestion or list of action I should look into should be greatly appreciated.

Controller pkg 808IQ and a 2g cable set will get you going quite a bit faster.

Check it out here > Speed control packages

Scotty, his is series, not iq.

But Scotty is right, get a 500 amp AXE Alltrax controller, a HD forward reverse switch and an upgraded motor (I prefer Advance or GE motors). Lots of motors to choose from, not sure what Scotty carries, you should email him, but you will want high HP at High RPMs at continuous rating to acieve the most speed, torque will most likely not be a problem. I would get the 400 amp solenoid too.

New wiring is a good idea, but I have run stock cables in my upgraded carts without any problems, but my cables are in like new condition.

It really depends on how fast you want to go and how much you want to spend. The motors I used got both my carts to 25 mph with great torque for around $1200 to $1300.

Best bet for speed would be to put in a 36V series motor and that would give you 30% more speed just by doing that alone. The problem is that finding one is very difficult. With a series system a higher amp controller will add torque not speed so your options are limited.

Speedchaser...is that one motor for $1200?
