Default More Torque Needed - 2003 Club Car DS

I am new to golf carts, so I am in the learning process. I have a 2003 Club Car DS with a High Speed Series motor. My problem is that it will not go up the ramp to my Toy Hauler Trailer without getting a running start. Otherwise it runs great and fast. I have a 48 volt system with new Trojan batteries. I have been told that if I had a stock motor it would have enough torque to climb the ramp, so I was hoping to find someone that had a stock motor and wanted to trade for the high speed one, but no luck there so far. Looks like my only option is to buy a new motor with more torque, so I'm looking for advice on what type motor I need to purchase, a factory stock motor, or after market torque motor. I'm told they are both about the same price. I only use the cart in a camp ground so I do not need a lot of speed just enough torque to get up the ramp. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Another option to increase the torque on a Series CC is to replace the Controller with a higher amperage controller. That way you keep the speed and increase the torque.

I had a 96 CC series cart and I added a high speed motor and 400 amp controller. It would climb into my pickup bed with no trouble at all.

Try the new Alltrax SR400 with 460 peak output or GE 500 amp control. Don't forget to upgrade the solenoid too.

I know the batteries are ok. I have all new Trojans just installed last week.

Thanks for the tips on the controllers.

I think it should make it up the ramp in stock form. My cart has a stock motor and controller with 23 inch tires and can stop on the ramp and climb up.

Treyz ..... I think my problem is the High Speed motor. If I had the stock motor I think it would go up the ramp fine. I wish I had the stock motor. I have been trying to find a used one, but have not had any luck.

Understood. I wonder if your high speed motor has different gearing.

I found a used stock motor at a local dealer for $200.00 and installed it yesterday. It works perfect for what I need. Thanks to everyone for their input.
