Default Question about power

I have a 2001 CC 48 volt cart. I just installed new T-890 batteries, runs good, but here's my question. When going up a hill, the cart slows way down, but I had heard that electric cart's will do this to save power, is this true?
The hill that I have went up is not near near the incline that is on the course, do I need to worry about anything here?

~thanks~

I am assuming that you have a stock motor in your cart. It is normal for the cart to slow down on an incline this isn't because the cart is trying to save power it is because when climbing a hill it takes more torque when torque increases speed decreases in fact as torque increases so does power consumption. If you are going to be using the cart on a hilly course you may want to look into getting a motor with a higher torque rating.

You probably hvave a ds cart and you could upgrade your cables or go with a D@d motor which is 10 horse and you dont have to change anything,just a bolt in operation.

EMP does torque motors very well and that's not PQ's specialty even though they can do it.

In the thread, (that I didn't start by the way,) this was last stated:

"Ok, this is what I have. I pulled the motor thanks by the way to scubabud, read AMDnutt's thread about his PQ Motor and got some insight on how to get the motor off correctly. It definitely had a smell to it when I pulled it off. Are there any other signs I may see now that I have it off? Does anyone know the difference in price of a new stock motor from a CC dealer versus PQ?"

I answered his post this way: "I'd sell it, (speaking of my used 06 Precedent motor,) for $150 shipped... but I still believe you'd be better off with a rebuilt by PQ using your motor as a core."

He asked about a PQ, I know about PQ, so I answered his response based on PQ.

I support our sponsors and when I need something I usually purchase it from either CPP or East Coast CC.
