There are no governors on electric golf carts. What you can do is tear off the front cover, which is almost the hood of the cart, if you will. After you have torn it off, you …will see a hinge that you will need to take a welding gun or an Allen wrench to,depending on what brand car you have. Then you need to disconnect the hinge. After you have done this, it's best to floor the cart on a downhill to make sure it goes fast. Then at the very bottom of the hill where momentum is the greatest, slam on your brake to make sure the hinge is totally broken. You will most likely burn some rubber, but you'll be fine. ****DO NOT DO THAT***** Actually a lot of electric golf carts have programmable motor controllers that can be re-programmed to increase or decrease the speed. Look under your cart.....near the motor, there should be 3 cables running from the motor to the controller if your cart has one. Write down the model....then go to the buggies unlimited golf cart forum where they will give you free advice! email@example.com
No A lot of golf carts now if they are electric have motor controllers that can be programmed. Check with the Buggies Unlimited or Buggies Gopne Wild Golf Cart Forum

Answer . There is no better gas or electric. Only what works better for you and what you are using it for. Some hunters prefer electric because they are quiet while other h…unters prefer gas because they might be farther out than an electric can carry them. We use electrics at work simply because we can plug it in easier than filling it up.
you have to put ur foot on the pedal.
It depends. There is an EZ-GO cart which is battery powered, which runs sort of like an electric car but without an engine the battery powers the wheels, or there is the gas p…owered which pretty much runs the same way as a lawn mower.
Charger will not charge batteries and will start at low charge thenpeak then drop then shut off?
you lean a little foward. An electric golf cart can be made faster by installing a largerbattery or higher output engine. The power cables must also beupgraded to handle the i…ncreased load.
I have a blog that can show you electric golf carts maybe you will find what are looking for here (I ) http://push-pull-golf-cart.blogspot.com/ The new Powakaddy Freeway 2 wei…ghs 9kg without battery, 11.5kg with the lithium battery and 19kg with the lead acid battery. . Most electric golf cars will weigh between 850 to 950 pounds with the batteries. On average an electric cart w/o batteries will weigh between 600 - 700 lbs.
Get a gas powered motor and connect where electric one was.
like 10 mph
First you will need to identify the problem. Then maybe a quick how to guide may be found. Or contact manufacturer.
normally they all go around 20 mph unless you mod them or somtimes petrol I have an 18 hp 72 volt Alternating Current Golf Cart with a 500 amp Curtis motor controller.....It… is programmed right now for low speed and it goes 0 to 27 mph in about 5 seconds! You can upgrade motor parts and build them to go pretty fast! Check out Buggies Gone Wild.....or Alternating Current....or Buggies Unlimited.
When it either runs out of battery or when it is nearly dead! :L . Best rule of thumb is to recharge when the batteries are at about 60% capacity. You should not recharge eve…ry time you run down the street to the store, operating for 5 minutes. If you have a cumulative running time of about 20 minutes, then you should recharge. Battery packs have about 1000 charge cycles. That is their life span. A fleet car used and charged every day = 3 1/2 years. I have seen batteries, well cared for and charged sparingly, last 10 years.
