Default PQ bandit, 4ga cables what next?

I just installed the Plum Quick bandit and a full set of 4 ga cables on my 07 precedent, but I want advice on which parts to do next. I'm reading about upgrading the solenoid, F&R switch, controller etc and I don't know what is best to do next.
My overall goal isn't top speed but more torque and acceleration off the line.
Any suggestions on what you'd do next?

equals a higher amp controller.

Yup Controller and solenoid should fix you up.

So in looking at solenoids and controllers, do I need to match the amperage to anything? I.E. a 400 amp solenoid with a 400 amp controller? Or do they have to be equal?
Also does it really make a difference to change out the F&R switch?

Yes you want to match them up, that is the key. I think your cart you don't need to change the switch, it is a rocker switch correct?

Yeah its a rocker type switch that lays horizontal. I'd read that the F&R switch can be the weak link in a system if you've changed the other parts and havent changed that out yet. So you're saying I need to keep the Amps equal on the solenoid and the controller?
I'm looking at this solenoid : http://www.eastcoastcarts.com/catalo...arts/30912.htm
With This controller: http://www.eastcoastcarts.com/catalo...mCarts/500.htm

Is that a smart combination?

You are running a SepEx motor, so you don't need to worry about the F/R switch. It's electronic, not mechanical.

A 500 Amp controller is great, but I doub't that motor pulls anywhere near 500Amps. I don't have the specs on the Bandit, but I assume it is pretty close to the AMD 3294 motor. Do a google search for Speed Code 3294 and see what you get.

I'm not sure the amps of the Bandit motor either but I did search 3294 motor and found a few things. I guess what I'm really trying to figure out is what are the Solenoid and Controller that would best fit my current situation and setup. Like the two I mentioned above, would those be wise choices?

The solenoid will work but if you ever consider upgrading the motor, spend the extra money and go with the 500 amp controller. I like the Curtis above, I have it and works great.

oh just noticed you have the 2007, so you would need to verify that controller but they should have what you need.

Fast Guys are you saying to use your stock controller, reprogram it with your programmer and it will be faster with more torque?
What kind of speed would you see with an all stock cart, stock tires, just a motor upgrade and programmer ?
