Default 99 club car 48 needs speed

Ok so i know how forums work and you guys are going to be mad at me and say I didnt search but I really did. When I search I just cant find and understand exactly what I need.

I have posted before that I have a 99 club car 48v that I am rebuilding. So far I have found out that my batteries are a litte old but are still good.I upgraded the wires to 4ga and now have got the cart going about 10 mph.

I really want it to faster but dont know where to start. I dont really have a ton of money to spend but am willing to spend if its worth it.

What should I do? What exactly do i need? Are there part #'s or a certain website to visit?

I live in the Tampa FL area is there any place near by or any one with extra parts?

Were there programmable IQ type carts in 99 ?? 10 MPH sounds really slow..does this sound normal to anyone?? I thought in 99 they only had series type and if thats the case, again 10 mph doesnt sound right

You definately checked your batteries as a pack and also individually??...speeds that slow would lead me to think you have a problem somewhere, and since the cart is moving, I would think you have one or more bad batteries.

I agree, lets get a reading on those batteries! also what year are they? look in the post and give us a letter - number.
I just spent a lot of $ on a motor & it turned out to batteries.

well I checked that whole battery pack after charge and it was at 52v and the individual batteries readings have 3 at 8.85 and 3 @ 8.9.

After driving for about 15 mins that dropped to 48v and the individual has 3 @ 8.75 and 3 @ 8.85 and it seems like it is every other battery with the different reading.

How fast should this cart be going?

A ? about your speed ,
Is this from a GPS reading or a WAG.

And remember when checking Voltage , charge until charger stops, wait 30 Min. Then check.
Also check across entire pack, this gets all Batteries + Cables.

OK more speed = more money, upgrade motor $300
Upgrade controller = $400
Bigger tires and wheels $200-400
Heavy Duty Soliniod = $50-75

U are now doing 20-25 MPH = $+1000.00
