Thanks CCF - on the ball again. Clumsy to find reference material with a borrowed laptop. Just found out the course I've been playing for the past 10 days - and losing a little cash to my buddies (Las Sendas) is rated 10th most difficult in USA. No wonder I've been struggling to play to my handicap!

That is... confusing!! I'm not the best with electrical stuff. The amp hour ratings are the same but they vary slightly on the 5 hr rating and if I remember correctly the 20 hr rating is the same on them.

The 20 hr rating is the one used most widely. I'd venture to say with good maintenance the pack will be OK. You'll definitely have enough service from them to be able to save a little every so often into a battery pack fund so you can get a really nice set of batteries when these die someday. Maybe even have some extra for more mods.

On another note, I had forgot about this thread and didn't know until I just caught up on it that I was being referenced for battery trays, I hope the stuff I wrote was helpful.

Unfortunately I'm still working but when I get home I'll check both. I'm pretty sure they're almost identical specs but never the less I'll double check.

If they have the same 20hr rating - there really should be little to worry about. We all check battery voltages fairly frequently (every 2 mos or so)- and if anything was going adrift you could decide how to approach it at that time.

Cheked the batteries and both 20 hr ratings are the same.

Sweet!

Next thing is I remember the man that gave me the cart said it was slow. I falsely posted that there were 4 8v and 2 6v batteries in the car. Turns out there were 6 8v batteries in it. So my question is what would cause it to be slow? I plan. On cleaning the connections to the controller like Joe said but would that fix the problem?

Depends on what "slow" is. While you have the batteries out, I'd go through and clean all of the connections throughout the cart. Also, take the cover off the V-Glide and make sure that the wiper arm reaches the top contact at WOT
