Default 8 mph top speed - ????

Ok guys - my 48V 2006 cc iq ds has a GPS'ed top speed of 8 mph. I just got the cart a couple of months ago, it came from a Barefoot landing golf course near Myrtle beach, SC. Everything is stock on the cart except for the voltage reducer I added for lights that I added. And I added a back seat.

So where do I start? All the connections look good and tight, wires look fine. Batterys seems to charge properly and water level inside them looks normal. I assume this cart is set on the mid-grade speed setting from the factory. Is there anything in particular that I should check???....everything seems to be working properly.

Time for upgrades?

thanks

Start off by taking it to a CC dealer and have it "reprogramed" for a higher speed!
(IQ's are capable of reaching close to 19 MPH)
Golf coarse's tend to "dial them down" to prevent injuries!

It may cost $40 or $50 bucks... but in my eyes, it'd be worth it!

They can be turned down as low as 8mph. Sounds like a likely culprit

If you call a local dealer and talk to them about a few other parts you might need, they might be nicer about doing a programming job that takes seconds to complete. I know I always am.

if i have it "reprogrammed to "mode 4" setting, that's the fastest I think from what I've read on here - then adding tires and wheels will probably make it a couple of mph's faster -

maybe I can get 20-21 mph's out it with a 23-10.5-12 tire/wheel possibly?

hopefully faster than the lifted ezgo's around the campground....

Setting 4 will get you to where you want to be.

Question Re: 8 mph top speed - ????

What needs to be done to reprogram the cart? Is there special equipment (Tools) required? Seems like it must be pretty simple if it only tqkes a couple of seconds.

It takes a CC Dealer to take the serial number off your controller, send that info in to CC and receive a programming code to entry into your controller with THEIR special hand held programmer. They will charger you in the neighborhood of around $75-$150. You could also look into upgrading your motor for even more speed without doing the controller speed upgrade. Cost would be around $300.

If I upgrade my controller, will I still need CC for any kind of adjustments? From what I have read in this forum, I can make my own adjustments using a laptop and USB cord. Is this correct? I have an Alltrax 500 amp being delivered tomorrow.

tnx/pjs

No need for CC since you'll be using the Alltrax controller. Just setup the AllTrax the way you want with your laptop. Just make sure you place your Tow/Run switch to Tow and remove the main (-) lead from the battery, then the main (+) lead from the battery before doing any installation.
