Default what's the diff?

Does anyone know for sure if the rear end on a 2002 or later Club Car or even EZGO is a "limited slip" or "positraction" type?

Neither one is. Most, if not ALL electrics are Open type. Club Car makes a traction device you can buy. You can't tell by looking at the diff. You will have to open the diff.

Forgive my ignorance, but what does Open mean and do you know where you can get the traction devices?

An open rear means only one tire is doing all the work--non positraction. If your cart could spin the tires, an open rear would onjly smoke the right rear tire. A traction type rear would spin and smoke both rear tires equally-theoretically.
