08 Precedent. I was hoping for 20mph. I do have added weight because I put 8 6volt batts in but it's only about 100lbs

Im not sure why. I have installed several ( prob 15-20 ) that did nothing. Made cheap, false advertising, I dunno?

I have never dealt with magnets, so I really can't say anything. Caspero, what code is your cart set on? Code 4 will get you close to 20...

See if you can get a magnet reader.It is a piece of transparent film and you can see the poles.4 pole is high speed,8 pole is stock.
I may also mention that on the 09 and newer excel models the magnet won't work.
