Default Club Car Slowing down

Hi

My 2010 Prec 6 8v Trojan's is starting to slow down. The batteries are 4 yrs old and properly maintained.

Going up a hill with a passenger is brutal (150 lbs)

My top speed is supposed to be 19.5 mph

Speed control 4.

I am not handy so diy is out of the question.

Thanks

Alan

Replace the batteries then.

Thanks

I will run it over to the cart shop and have them check the batteries to rule out something else.

How fast did you used to go uphill when the batteries were young. Going up a moderate hill with a Precedent should peak out at about 13MPH with new batteries. You will only get 19.5 on flat level ground.

When l go up a hill alone l am ok but with a passenger (approx 150 lbs) I feel like 13 mph.

I was told that if l change my tires from 8.5 to 10" l will gain approx 2 mph. I was planning on changing tires and wheels in Dec

It's a trade off. What you gain in speed you lose in torque. Besides with the speed regulator set to 19.5 it won't go any faster anyway. You might talk to them about a speed magnet but if it's a CC dealer they won't modify your cart to go faster.

The controller regulates rpm not mph, so it will go faster than 19.5mph with larger diameter tires (wheel size is irrelevant), but only on level surface since it will loose torque uphill.

I stand corrected on the tire size.

Also, just a note. 8.5 and 10.5 are wheel sizes. This change is not what gets you more speed. Changing tire diameter to a larger (taller) tire will get you the speed. I have 10.5 wheels and did not gain nor would expect to gain speed.
