Default 2001 club cart has no torque

i upgraded my wheels now my golf cart has less power i bought it with motor up grade im guessing because it goes 25mph and when i use to push the pedal it felt like it was gonna lift off the ground but now i have added 8 inch lift and 18 inch rims i have way less power but it still goes 25mph do i need to change some gear or something

If you changed to larger diameter wheels/tires, you will lose torque but gain top speed. Also, if they are a lot heavier (more unsprung weight), it will take more motor power to turn them and more braking effort to stop them.

What motor and controller do you have?

18 inch rims? That's a LOT of added weight.

You lose torque proportional to the outside tire diameter change. You changed that a lot!

Your cart with large wheels is now like starting out in third gear. The only way to get the torque back is with a higher current controller or a higher torque motor.

I get the low starting torque, but cannot understand why the the top speed would be limited under no/light load.

Is it possible that with such a huge lift and over-sized rims that the brake cables are too stretched and causing the brakes to drag?
