Default Re: Another Controller Question

If I can get a 500 A or 600 A controller for my cart, what should I expect torque-wise over my stock one ?

I understand that a 400 A was going to give me 20% more torque over stock.

At least until you make up your mind on a replacement controller designed to do the job. Reman or not. JMO.
Perfectly written

You don't need 500 - 600 amps. A 400 amp alltrax is all you need. You WOULD NOT get 20% power from the CTS controller. I've had them, tried them and fried them. Alltrax - Alltrax - Alltrax. 400 amp - 400 amp - 400 amp. Don't forget to order the PDS interface.

You will not use ANY chip in an aftermarket controller - no place for them. The PDS interface HAS to be ordered and used for the controller to wire up to the stock harness.

One last question on this topic.

Are these speed chips as simple as they look ? You said (or someone did) that I needed a yellow or blue instead of a red one. My cart came with a yellow one, can I simply pull the wires out of the red one and put them back in the right slot to make it blue ? I do realize a blue has one wire and the red has 2. Might just be me, but the controller and solenoid on my cart looks brand spanking new !

Should have stayed with the yellow one. In perspective, yes, you could 'make' a speed chip. It takes a little more than just 'pulling' out the wires, though.

Didn't your dealership explain any of this to you when you purchased?
