I have been doing a lot of research and I am going to build the heat sink a user invented on this forum for the stock motor, once i start programming the controller. I am also putting on a temp sensor onto the motor and the controller.
Does anyone have a long list of recommended settings for programming? I think I want to program 35 mph with a faster take off, and have the turf mode switch go between a 25 mph max (stock programming) and the 35 mph fast programming. If anyone has the numbers that are the best to get the most mileage / performance that would be awesome! I know there are quite a few options to go through while programming so any help is greatly appreciated.
It’s odd that these type of questions never get answered - are the programming numbers a huge secret? I will be attempting the re-programming of my 2014
Looking for guidance - I have one post to go by (based on a t2 - so only slightly helpful - I will post my results -
Will do - I have only had the GEM for two weeks- but I am a big car guy and have extensively moded most of my cars - so I can already see that I will be going down that route - keeps me out of trouble!
The guy came over on Monday and we programed the T1. I had changed gear ratio from 8.9 to 10.35. On his chart ratios wern’t given so we programed in the smaller tire size. Worked out well. I now run 18 in Turf and 28 in Regular. Happy Happy Happy.
Note: I had my controller serviced by Flight Systems (outstanding service) and guess what? Came back with a 255 limit. Big Brother is watching over us.
I stayed with 28 MPH because I replaced my 3 1/2 HP motor with a 5. I don’t want to wind it too tight. Also I MHO that you should have disk brakes on the front if you push speed past 30.
no I never did .they are sitting on my work bench . the thought was since i’m running the stock 5hp to fast that it would be needed . but the motor never showed any signs of heat issues so I didn’t bother .
I doubt anyone pushes an old 5hp as hard as I have for so long (motor is a 2002) and I haven’t had a single problem.
Sorry to resurrect a five year old thread, but if anyone is still looking to reprogram a T2 Controller ( mine was in a 2002 four seater that was basically stock) with Sentry Software, I recently did so and could provide some tips if needed.
Been pretty fun so far since. got it up to 34 on the flats (As opposed to the old 28mph regen sputter limit). Cant tell you what a difference that 5-6mph makes driving around town. Yes, the brake issue will be a real thing to think about, but i’m not sure new shoes will make much of a difference, and the $1000 for the disks plus install is a bit steep. (Open to any other suggestions on that front.)
