Default Tomberlin Golf CArt

Does anyone have any information on the Tomberlin Golf Carts on trying to get more speed out of them?

I did a Google search and found a group of guys who have changed the programming of the GE controller and were getting 30-35 mph out of the tomberlin. Some of the newer Tomberlin's are using a Curtis controller.

It's no longer legal to drive on the street however. A LSV can not have a top speed of over 25 mph. In Texas, at least a NEV can have a top speed of 35mph. Not sure what the difference is.

I'm getting mine in a week. I live in the Villages in Florida and its a big retirement community with thousands of golf carts. I know what you are talking about because I have friends that have Gem cars that go 35-40 and are suppose to go only 25. I guess mine will be a Curtis controller. Do you own a Tomberlin and if you do what year? Is it possible to play with the conroller and make it go faster?

Yes, I have a Red 2008 Tomberlin E-2 that I bought 2 months ago. Don't know if I can post a link or not, but here is the thread I saw regarding speeding it up. So far, I love my Tomberlin. We use it in the neighborhood, usually not more than 10-15 miles a day and it does great. Another guy in the neighborhood has a lift kit on his Tomberlin. I haven't been able to ask him where he got it though. I'm looking forward to getting mine lifted in the next year or so (once I figure out who did his!)

I have a 2007 E-Merge 2. Has anyone replaced the Ge controller on their cart with a 500 AMP controller?????

It's pretty simple, just plug it in and wait for the green light. In the manual there is a page on what the different colors of lights mean. Let me know if you can't find it.

Ya I guess I figured it out, the solid black battery symbol sign has to be green and the curved line has to be amber, never said that in the book.
