Default RXV no torque, solved??

Hello, if this has already been resolved, discussed I'm sorry. I want to build an rxv hunting cart but they have no pop a wheelie, climb a log torque!! So will this fix it? https://www.navitastechnologies.com/...-shunt-separat

The reason for the performance level of the RXV being what it is, you can thank E-Z-GO for that. It's not about amps, it's about protecting the motor and controller with an extremely conservative VCL (Vehicle Control Language). If you go with the Navitas controller, you had better take advantage of their motor upgrade as well. Because the stock RXV motor will not take that abuse for long. You can overheat the stock RXV motor with a stock controller, just by putting tires on it that are too big. I've tweaked the stock controller settings on Curtis controlled RXVs, and you can pull a wheelie with it. But if you watch the motor temperature, you'll also learn to take it easy most of the time to let it cool back down.

Thanks Bob, so is it even worth it to build a rxv hunting cart? I like the look and also the performance of AC. Your thoughts?

I have a 2010 RXV. I pop curbs, go over logs, go up hills, go through mud, drive through heavy brush almost daily.

that being said, I've been in discussion with a distributor in Austin about these controllers. When i talked to him about 2 weeks ago, he was the first guinea pig on the old controller and so far it wasn't working, but he was confident to get it working while working with the manufacturer.

Absolutely. I've used my 2008 RXV (with stock Curtis controller and tires/wheels) to tow large vehicles, drag logs, go offroading where there are no trails or roads, driving over small trees, ect. It has not let me down yet. I drive it like I don't care if I break it. LOL

Here is the key with a stock rxv... Don't put the tires directly against the obstacle, stop, then try & go.. instead, back up 6 inches, then go, so the motor is not at zero rpm when "popping" over the obstacle. The rxv hates "jumping curbs" with zero motor rpm, give it any rpms at all, and it'll hop right over. Not that the motor can't do it, but the "Nannys" in the controller don't like it.
