Got a 2010 E-2 with a Curtis SepEx 1244 500amp controller. There must be a way to change the settings on it to get another 5 to 10mph. Anyone have some info?

I am getting a 2010 soon so will have some info then.

My questions are

1. So where are the other Tomberlin folks?
2. Are they just ok with the speed they have?
3. Is it possible to get a programmer that can make the changes?
I have a 2010 Tomberlin Emerge-2 LE. Right now my top speed is a miserable 23mph. I am in the process of editing the parameters of the 1268 Curtis Controller.

You will need the 1314-4401 PC Programming Software from Curtis Instruments if you want to make any modifications.

There is another website that has a very active forum regarding your questions. Google: tomberlin parameters and you will find it.

Cheers,

Dirty V

I think I am very close to solving the mystery. Also I'm leaving town for a few days and am waiting on a professional USB to serial converter that I found out is required with Vista and Windows 7. The cheap ones have communication issues in 7. All I have are two laptops with Windows 7 and USB ports. My first try found the controller but had the communications issue. I'll probably do my next try this weekend.

I was reading a post from UFGator and he has already programed his to go 30+, he used a GE Senry Software and plugged into the E-2 controller to change the top speed. He said it cost him 125.00 with cables Has anyone here anything of this?

My 2010 Tomberlin seems to governed at 24mph. Level or down hill. Any kind of incline it starts dropping quickly. I also would like to get a little more speed and power.
I assume I would have to upgrade the controller to get more power?

Now that I have about 700 miles on my 2008, it pretty much runs at 26mph the whole time, except for going uphill. For the first 300 miles or so I couldn't seem to get it over 22-23mph. I even took it to the dealer to ask what's up. He told me they get better as they break in. I have never seen it above 26 mph however.
