Default Solenoid question

I have an Alltrax NPX400 controller installed with 4 gauge wire. Is a stock FNR switch and solenoid ok or do I need to go heavy duty?

The manufacture says NPX controllers are stock replacement controllers. They are not meant for upgraded suspension and larger wheels & tires. So a stock controller should go good with a stock f&R and solenoid.

From the manufacture's website...

The NPX product line are Non-Programmable Controllers used with SERIES
Wound Motors, (Field and Armature are in seeries). These units are
designed specifically for factory equipped golf cars.

These units are designed for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) stock
replacement controllers for stock cars with stock motors only. With a peak
current rating they are not designed for lifted or high performance vehicles.

Thanks Scotty, would I benefit any upgrading those components or just leave well enough alone? I was also thinking about my motor at the end of the year, can I upgrade it without problems? If I can what could I go with or would I be better just to go through the current motor?

Ask that question around this crowd? Yes, upgrade! Bigger control, bigger wire, HD F&R, HD Solenoid, more voltage. The Motor is an upgrade after the others. You can have yours upgraded for around $225 or buy a new one that really kicks for around $650. It is just money but you got to spend it on something, right?

many people use the white-rodgers heavy duty 36v solenoid. it's about $65 and most sponsors should have it.
