Default Re: Bumpy ride, what else could it be? Help Please!!

Ran into a little trouble this morning. Had reverse in F button position and forward at half speed with buzzer in R button position. Called Alltrax who said swap out F1 and F2, and that did the trick. So, I have a running cart again.

Put it on the charger finally after a few weeks sitting during rebuild and plan to start on rear seat install.


One thing to note, the bumpyness is still there, so it's definately the wheels/tires. I will be swapping in the 3 they sent me to try out to isolate which ones need replacing.


Once I get some of this done I'll do some comparison tests to the alltrax 400 I used to have. At first trial run without the seat backs and rear seat installed, I'm not sure it has any more speed or power than the stock motor on the alltrax 400 did, but I know it should so I'll have to play with the laptop and monitor settings and what not once I get to that point.

Guess I should have just made this a build thread.




Little more progress today:







Got most of the rear seat kit installed. Just have the safety handle to install in the rear and the roof supports to attach to the rails. Looking at the kit I'm thinking it could use a couple of Z-shaped brackets under the rear step that bolt to the frame, but we will see once I'm done.

interesting your first impression without playing with settings is thats you dont nottice any extra speed or power with new motor...

hmm i hope the setting fixes that.


As far as the reason for the thread, the Bounce, I bought all new tires and wheels and the tires are DOT tires and my cart still bounces. I dont think thats ur problem or mine.

Not sure on the speed/torque for sure. My setup had a lot of speed and torque before the change, so I'm not noticing any overwhelming difference yet. That said, the 400 had different throttle curve settings and it had turbo turned on, so that might be the difference, but I didn't install that one so I don't know why it was set that way.

I do know that the motor has enough torque currently to roll the axle forward and backwards when you hit the throttle and it feels just shy of lifting the front end off the ground. I think I was just already used to increased torque and speed so it doesn't seem as extreme of a change.


On the bump, I'm actually getting ready to start swapping in the 3 replacement wheels/tires this afternoon to see if I can improve it. I don't see how it can be anything other than tires/wheels though since I've completely changed my front suspension, hubs, rear axle, and motor at this point. What else would affect the ride that could cause bumpiness? Will update the post later on my progress.

I spent all of yesterday afternoon fighting with my rear seat install. I talked to manufacturer who is sending me a replacement foot plate as mine arrived scraped up, and they also are sending me the brackets that should go under the foot plate as they were not in my box for some reason. Once I get these items fixed the rear seat should be good to go. I'm thinking that some black diamond rocker panels along with the black newer front windshield frame will look good on here, so that is to be my next items to replace.

Just swapped out wheels and tires with the 3 that Colorado Components sent me and guess what?































NO MORE BUMPINESS. BUMPY RIDE PROBLEM APPEARS TO BE SOLVED!!!!

Now it just rides like any rec vehicle with knobby tires, and just the way I remember it when I first lifted it and put all terrain tires on it.

Now to focus on the motor settings while I wait for a few pieces for my rear seat. Also need to adjust the brakes as I can hear one of the brakes making some noise on this new axle.

But at least I wound up with a mostly revitalized cart to take me through the next 5 or 6 years. :)

More like 5 or 6 months if I read this thread right, no way can you stay away for longer, lol, just kidding, and nice job on the build there.
