Default electric club car

Does anyone know why reverse would not have hardly any power. It is slow on flat ground and when you get to any incline it slows and eventually stops.

You can try taking the reverse power wire where it hooks onto the batteries, and hook to the last battery, and see if this helps.

Are you thinking that it just isn't getting enough volts? Because of where it is hooked up now.

Thinking this would give you more speed, and torque. Thinking the real trouble maybe the brushes, or armature. This is a 30+ year old cart if the motor has not been replaced they may be worn down to wear limit.

If you hook it direct to whole battery pack as FISHINGDUD says you will therotically have same speed as forward? I have seen some units hooked up this way BUT (anyone) not aware of this can CRASH the cart easily.
