His original question was PQ bandit or controller upgrade. I'm assuming the budget is around $350 - $500 investment. The TXT48 has a long stack motor capable of making more torque than the stock controller allows. Anybody who has tried the Alltrax XCT400 in this cart will highly recommend this as a good way to get significantly more power and speed.
I doubt the bandit upgrade can match the XCT performance on hills given the stock controller and solenoid in use.


Should I just get the Alltax XCT400 or can I add them both together (add PQ Bandit later) & get a HD solenoid to get even more power

Just upgrade the controller and solenoid for now.

You may find that upgrading motor isn't needed.

I think you should get the Alltrax too and see if that doesn't fill the bill. The XCT requires a 200 solenoid like the SW180.
Motor wise... the motors cost so much to ship you can be $60-$100 into round tripping a motor somewhere, add the cost of reworking it and you are almost near the price of a new purpose built motor with substantially more horsepower. Other opinions may vary

Excellent advice and I agree. I would recommend purchasing a new purpose built motorl. Unless you live driving distance from the rebuilder. The cost of shipping motors gets crazy. As well there are a lot of great choices for new purpose-built motors.

I find there are specific posters to this site.

1. Retailers
2. Golf cart techs (full time real techs)
3. Hobbyists (Extreme to mild)
4. Users of Golf Carts to actually golf etc...

With regards to the types of carts people "build".

1. Golf Carts (they use them to golf, drive around their property)
2. Low Speed Vehicles (Street legal in some places... RXVs etc...)
3. Wannabe UTVs...

So the advice given tends to lean towards what type of contributor you are... and what type of cart you are building.

I am an Extreme Hobbyist who builds Wannabe UTVs... :P

Cheerss,
Impaled
