Default Pros and Cons 1996 Fairway Villager

What are the pros and cons to a 1996 CC fairway villager 48 volt?
I am thinking about buying one to use for hunting and cruising.
Would this be a good cart to lift?
Controller change?
I wanted to ask the experts first.
Any help would be appreciated. Love this site and Thanks in advance for the help.

Yep very good cart, check age and condition of batteries , a new set is $600.00.

Yes on the lift !

Controller change ? depends on what speed and torque, run times U want.

Thank you for the reply. Sorry it is been so long. What kind/type lift would you recommend? Also what kind of controller upgrade? Again, thanks for the help and any info. I will get the cart next week and put new batteries in it. I would like to all upgrades when doing this. Thanks

Jakes makes the best lifts, but you need to decide how high , how long, how much $$Money U have.
and when U lift a cart and put bigger tires and wheels on it you will gain some "flat ground speed" but loose hill climbing torque"

EMP makes a relatively inexpensive dual speed/torque switchable motor.

As for controller "Controller change ? depends on what speed and torque, run times U want"

thanks man. Which one would be better the motor or controller upgrade? The cart would be used for hunting and neighborhood cruising. So i like the fact that i could switch from speed to torque.
If i get that EMP motor do i need to change contollers or will the stock one work?
Also does EMP sell lift kits?

Thanks for all the help. I will get the cart next week and then contact some site sponsors about a lift and more upgrades.

No, and I would be leery of any motor house that did.

Go to the top of this page and see http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/site-sponsors.php

Both are good for increase in speed and torque,
and a new motor will give U some of both and a new bigger controller will also give U some of both.

Plum Quick, and D&D also make/rewind motors which can give U as much as your $$ can stand.
Some sponsors also sell combo kits and U may work a deal if U buy enough toys to get a lift a tad cheaper.
All site sponsors guarantee their stuff, so be careful when shopping around.

Before you do a motor and controller upgrade (something you don't HAVE to do), you should upgrade to a complete 4 gauge wire kit Do this at the same time as the lift

4 gauge is a MUST on lifted carts. You may just be happy with the stock motor and controller. If it ain't broke, then don't fix it

Nice fade away effect there

I don't like to see people buying the carriage before the horse! Most lifted carts are just fine with stock controllers and motors. WIRES, WIRES, WIRES!!!!

Does this cart (96 fairway villager) use the same parts as a 1996 club cart ds?
Whats the difference in the carts?
Thanks again.
