Default Super slow 2003 Club Car DS

The cart has fully charged brand new batteries. Yet the cart will only go about 8 mph at best. The other thing is, the pedal is nearly to the floor before it kicks on and starts to move. Have I got a bad MCOR?
I thought maybe a speed sensor, but the cart beeps when I push it and I do have a reverse buzzer.

Thoughts?
TIA

Majority of the time that's just a worn linkage bar between the pedal and the MCOR.
Look down at the base of the pedal there's a rod with two bars sticking off the end around the pedal arm. The linkage rod meets the pedal there, and goes across to the right under the floor to the MCOR.
Stick a piece of fuel hose or wrap a couple zip ties around the upper bar to space it away form the pedal arm. Now when the pedal pushes the rod it will turn the rod a bit further and engage the MCOR sooner.

Also can have worn pivot bushings for the accel pedal. They should be replaced if there is excessive movement in the pedal pivot rod.
Still a chance the MCOR is worn out. Usually the two fixes above will correct the majority of the looseness in the pedal, so the MCOR will engage at a higher point in the pedal travel.

@Fairtax4me thanks for the idea, I looked at the pedal assembly and found the rod connecting the pedal to the MCOR was not installed properly. I loosened a few parts, reconnected it properly, and now it runs good! gonna go test and GPS it now...
