Default Ancient cart slow

So, I've got some threads on here. I'm trying to resurrect an old CC.

It's a first gen solenoid car. And it's wicked slow. Like 8mph top speed slow. I've put a few miles on it today, hills, flats. It goes up the hills, doesn't struggle too much. Just slooooooooow.

What do I do to make it go faster? Nothing crazy. I'd be happy with double digits...

It should go around 12 mph stock. Based on your other thread, it sounds as if your F and R circuits are reversed...

That has the original style F-R on it. Don't know if it makes a difference, but here is the correct one

I don't think shes a v-glide..... Just an old school CC... Solenoids and all.... It goes. It goes up some crazy inclines, cause I drove it up some... lol


It maintains "speed" up hills and around the streets here. But man, it's literally 5-6mph. tops,....

So. What do I do?

There will be either a black pie shaped box or a metal rectangular box in between the batts on the drivers side. That will tell you which you have.
