Default Looking for Input

I have a (6x8v) 2008 CC Precedent IQ. Stock motor,controller, 205/50/10 tires and 4ga battery cables only. I would like to upgrade slowly. I see that both Alltrax and Curtis offer 400 amp controllers (DCX400IQ & 1268-5403).
1. Can I use these on a stock motor ??
2. If I use a stock motor do I need to upgrade to a 400 amp solenoid??
3. What are the pros and cons of one controller over another?
4. I would like to get a PQ Executioner down the road.
Here in my neighborhood the streets are smooth and flat. I may also in the change to a taller tire (20in) and add a rear seat kit.
Looking for about 25+ mph
I know GE makes a 400 amp controller, your thoughts on them are also welcome.
Been reading stuff on this site for about 6/8 months, like JohnnieB the best.
Wish I new what the hell he was taking about.
Thanks in advance for all your comments.

Hard to beat Plum Quick. I run the stock controller. Flat airport community. I could get speeding tickets if anyone had a radar gun

First upgrade should be a ScottyB's volt meter. Absolutely indispensable!

Check my sig for my setup. Nothing difficult or exotic. I know only a fraction of what other guys know. Hats off to the companies who support BGW.

Agree with CTD.

Additionally since you are planning a Plum Quick upgrade, I would contact them about controllers they like to use with their motors. Always best when controllers are matched to the motors.

GE doesn't make controllers anymore, FSIP brought them out and they make their version of it, not that it is an issue it is a good controller. I'm very pleased with the PQ upgrade but If I was to do it again, I'd let PQ build the motor and Scottyb handle the rest, he will match it up properly. I went back with a 500 amp Curtis, plug and play, It was designed as a replacement upgrade for the stock controller. JMO we all have opinions lol!

I answered on this thread.

Alltrax issue maybe?

I can get 25.2MPH (gps) on flat ground, lots of torque for going up steep hills and off road.
