Never ran the cart until the low voltage light came on, or even until I hit the 50% mark with ScottyB's voltage meter. I have probably run 12 miles max. BTW, the volt meter was my FIRST upgrade.

I have put speed code 4 on countless carts and its all about your battery condition!!! People think just because the controller is opened up to go 19mph thats what they are going to get and its not going to happen without the amperage to do it. I have even had people call me that said they had new batteries and when I get there they are cheap Deka's and the cart will only do 17-18. Bottom line is you need good batteries to go fast and even with upgraded motors and controllers you are pulling major amps so you may be getting the speed but with mediocre battery condition they will get eaten up quick.

Marathon Man - Yes, my programming was optimized.

CMAR - I am sure you are correct with your battery comment. However, my batteries are two years old, all cells are good, voltage has not fallen off. So, when faced with purchasing new batteries and getting possibly 1.5 mph more, OR using what I already have and step up by 12mph, my choice was easy. Using the stock controller, I have not increased my amperage draw off the batteries. My drive distance needs are easily met and I cruise at 20mph most of the time. I am satisfied with my setup. I like being able to outrun everyone, including gassers with road gears.

just get some larger tires. Will give you more mph.

I have 23" tires - Stock Everything - Speed Code 4 - I get 22-23mph on pavement. 2009 Trojan Batteries 48v

Yes you need a lift to go with 23' but you can get a little bigger tire and not lift im sure. Maybe someone can chime in there.

He said he could make it go a little faster. So I believe he did do that. He said I should get faster acceleration from a stop.

I'll say again nice cart and setup not to mention obviously healthy good quality batteries.
My cheaper 2010 Interstates obviously were abused before me.
