Default Range Reduction with PQ motor ?

Trying to decide between Bandit or Executioner motor swap on my Precedent. May upgrade the controller and wires later down the road but looking to do a motor swap for now. My question is how much range reduction will I see with either one?

PQ should be able to give you the best advice.

Normally people upgrade cables first, then controller and finally motor. Doing a high performance motor first with stock cables and controller may result in disappointing performance.

That's a question many(including me) would like to know as well. If you call PQ, please post what you hear. Thanks.

I already had #4 cables,22" tires and stock 220A controller on mine when I did the swap to the executioner motor. Went from 15MPH with the regen unplugged to 27 but lost a little low end torque. No high temps anywhere. I think I would at least upgrade the wires while you are at it. With the controller upgrade I can get 31/32 out of it. And it will pull stumps.

I upgraded my to a PQ Bandit on my '07 Precedent. Everything else stock. Speeds went to 24mph. I have since upgraded cables (2ga), batteries (6-8v conversion), 20.5 inch tires and 3 inch lift. I now get 26mph on flat surface. I thought about a controller upgrade, but really don't see the advantage. I am happy with what I have now and can not see any noticeable difference in range from my complete stock setup.

That's good info. Have you noticed a decrease in range....if so by how much? The cables I would likely do also when doing the motor. I'm just not ready to drop 1k plus into a motor and controller if I can get by with the motor for now.

I've tried plum quick and once I get a response I will post it.

Nobovez42 that is pretty good with the bandit motor and cables. 26mph is moving pretty good especially if I could do that with my family onboard.

The Bandit and the cable are most likely the most bang for the buck. After that a little gains in speed and torque will start to get costly. Oh, be sure you check everything that could cause drag. Dragging brakes and under inflated tires are a killer.

Attached is a trip data log from an app on my phone. Notice I did 5.77 miles with a top speed of over 27mph. I had about 90% battery left after the trip
