Default TXT Upgrade Questions/Opinions

So I have recently moved into a neighborhood where the transportation of choice seems to be a golf cart. Not being new to projects and always wanting to get more performance than what OEMs offer I picked up a 2003 TXT series cart with bad batteries. I've searched around but can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for. The neighborhood has some steep hills in it. I'm looking for a setup with ample torque to tackle the hills with 4 adults with ease and maybe a top speed of 25-30mph. I do plan on doing a 4" or 5" lift to fit 23" tires (without the large gap around the tires) and swapping to 48v. I have already purchased a set of 4 12v 80aH lithium batteries, and 2ga wiring to make my own cables. Beyond that I'm looking for some direction as to what would be best for my application controller and motor wise. I came across the plum quick demon motor and 700amp controller for series carts. Anybody have experience with those? Or what is your setup? TIA.

Just a general comment... I know you plan on adding a lot of aftermarket motors/controllers, which is great. However, if you're saying you want the torque to make it up large hills with 4 adults, throwing on 23" tires is a direct, negative effect on your cart's torque.

Maybe keep it to a 3" lift and reduce your tire diameter a couple inches. Would result in a lot less stresses finding their way into your drive system. Also keep in mind, the tighter wheel well gap you create, the more likely you'll have rubbing under load.

Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the loss of torque with the larger tire sizes with a pickup of a couple mph. Though mph isnít my biggest concern Iíd like to still be at 20+. Iím just trying to find someone with a similar setup and get their real opinions before I spend that much money on something. Itís not often that we have 4 adults on the cart. Usually itís just my fiancť and myself. I would just like to make sure I have enough power when friends do come over. Anybody have experience with a setup good for a lifted cart on hills?

Brap - I'll watch this thread as I have a 2017 that I choose not to lift, 48V TXT, and want more speed. Looking at new controller, wires, solenoid, and motor. I believe I'll need the complete package to make it go. Would love to hear from others.
