So will mine. Have you ever had to stop because a kid ran out into the road chasing a basket ball? Two wheel brakes at 25 mph is just not good enough. Imo

This is in a gated community with NO kids or basketballs.. No one is saying anything about what is or is not safe. I just stated what carts run around here. People spend mucho bucks on custom carts. As stated above, the "box stock" RXVs run that speed.. They advertise them at 21 mph and put on big tires....

I am absolutely aware how the brakes on these things are shaky at best.. Having owned a few 100 mph boats, and a 10 second street car, you learn to look way ahead and scan and not to drive fast into an uncertain situation..

The boats didn't stop very well either!! (the Vette did!)

I am dealing with the same issues now. I overstated my torque requirements to d&d and am trying to increase forward speed.

I am still unsure why anyone questions what another person "wants".. My post was to see how to accomplish a goal. I get questioned why or told it's not safe without knowing my total project .. If you are happy driving slow, I am happy for you!

It appears Buggies Gone Wild is now patrolled by the "speed Police".

Well if your after more speed and don't want to give up any more torque than needed then install an oversize 500 amp controller in place of the stock 250 that you've got. My Excel cart with the PQE motor and stock controller struggled to break 21/22 MPH and lacked the torque needed to climb some of the roads where we live to breaking 33 MPH and climbing every incline I could throw at it with a Curtis 1268 controller....

You've already told us you know all about building fast cars.... But your 250 controller is like hanging a Briggs carb on a big block Chevy to your HS motor!
