I’ve been working with some great board members Kinghappy, Old Houseboater and Inwo who have been very helpful. Checking to see if anyone else might have any ideas for this set-up. Heard a few get to 40-45, but I can’t get close.
I purchased a Forklift program kit for my 2005 GEM ES with GE 5 hp motor, Deka 8G31 Gel batteries, 10.35 gear ratio and T3 controller. It has 195/50/16 tires with a height of 23.7 inches. Travel is all flat no hills.
I originally tried the MM built by Inwo, but it wouldn’t work in my GEM, it did increase the speed of my brother-in laws Club Car with early GE IQ motor by 5 mph.
I tried different controller settings such as;
#3 Controlled acceleration from 12 to 10
#4 Max Armature Current from 218 to 235 to 245
#13 Rolling Radius from 104 to 95 to 120 with 104 working the best.
#20 Pedal Up Regen Decel Rate from 128 to 75
#21 MPH Overspeed from 245 to 255
The fasted combination was #3 at 12, #4 at 235, #13 at 104, #20 at 128, and #21 at 255. It also seem like when I back off the accelerator it picks up some speed, not like when fully depressed and feels as if it’s holding back.
Set tire air pressure to 38 psi
Also checked battery voltage at full charge
After 12 miles of testing they read;
Checked Delta Q the 80% light flashed 6 rapid blinks which should be the algorithm for charging Gel batteries.
Thanks in advance for your interest.
