Default Club Car Reverse Problem

I have a an Electric Club Car, the cart goes great in forward, but when you put it in reverse it barely wants to move, it does, but if you are on a small incline, it will barely move. Any ideas, Any adjustments I can make?

1st we need year and voltage of cart.........and keep in mind that reverse is half speed so if its a 36 volt cart you only have 18 volts in reverse..................................

in addition to what shadowman said, if the batteries are getting tired it will get very slow in reverse. so you may want to check the batteries with a volt meter and hydrometer to see what life they have.

I have a 96 with a similar problem. Not sure if a 90 has similar wiring, but on mine, the black wire from the throttle potentiometer splits to provide input to a micro switch controlled by F/R switch. In forward, the signal goes straight through to the controller. In reverse, the signal goes through a 1/2 speed reverse resister?? (is it a resister?), and then to the controller.

I know the resister?? is bad, because I wired around it, and now have full speed reverse.

Question: is that a 2.5K resister? That would make the reverse throttle signal 7.5K to 2.5K, instead of 5K-0.
The reason I ask is it seems that arrangement would only provide 1/2 the useful peddle travel.
