Okay that sounds good and what are the benefits of switching to a 48volt compared to leaving it at 36v?

Not that upgrading to 48v (with appropriate controller etc) won't make a huge difference - its just a statement he's made that needs understanding/clarification.
Yes that is exactly what I mean I have one battery that drops to a 2 when it is under a load. What would be the benefits of switching to 48v or would all new 6v batteries make a great deal of difference so that I keep the cart 36v?

If I were you, I'd buy a good-used battery to replace that bad one, and learn what stock performance on hills really is first. The cost would be nominal and performance on hills would show immediate improvement. That cart at 36v will never be a speed demon, however.

If you want better performance than stock, as long as you haven't poured money into appearance upgrades to that particular cart yet, your probably better off selling it and buying a newer (IQ) cart to upgrade.
