Re: 2010 Precedent top speed
I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I wrote the following summary of the issue and sent it to a guy based on a question he asked.
Does this pretty much sum up the issue, or do I have something wrong?
I ask because I've read quite a few old threads and found slightly different response.
Here's the deal. There is such a thing as a high speed magnet mod that can be used with the Club Car IQ system. That is what you have since I noted the serial number starts with PQ.
There are 4 speed codes that can be programmed into the cart. Code 4 allows the cart to go 19.6 MPH. You will note that when you go down a hill the cart will not keep going faster and faster. That is the motor becoming a generator limiting the speed to 19.6 MPH.
Some folks want their cart to go faster, but they don't want to spend the approx $100 dealers charge to load Code 4. If you are running code 3 you can purchase a magnet mod that simply cuts the number of pulses per motor revolution "fooling" the controller. The magnet is about $20 or so.
If you are running Code 4 your are getting the max of 19.6 MPH from the cart. Adding the magnet to the cart will not increase your top speed EXCEPT downhill. The magnet disables the regenerative braking feature so the cart will go faster downhill.
Bottom line: If you are running Code 4, and want more speed on level ground, you must do a controller/motor upgrade.
