Arrow 1985 club car runs slow

I bought a 1985 club car a few months ago. Its lifted has plastic rims on it etc, it runs pretty slow I charged it up fully, I was wondering is there any way to make this cart go faster? How much would it cost? Does anyone else have the same problem I do with this kind of cart? Also the steering is a little hard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome ---- if you have a meter and can take the volts reading on each battery, and a reading of the hole pack and post the reading there/-----and what do you mean by slow, what speed are we talking about?????

Yes, you can have EMP rebuild you a motor with more speed and torque like I just did. I have 24x12x10 tires and the new motor pushes it 16+mph.. If its an 83 you probably have a 16 spline motor, which is hard to come by so your probably better off to just trade it in and get a rebuilt frm EMP.. I only pad $220 and they gave me $175 for my core so it really only cost me $45 plus shipping..

Do you have rack & Pinion sterring? They didnt start using them on Club Cars until late 1983 so some 83's have it and some dont.. If you dont have R&P your in for a world of work becasue you will need a donor cart that has all these parts..
1. Shock tower
2. Steering colum
3. R&P
4. Steering link that comes off the R&P
5. And probably much more

I'm in the process of changing mine over right now.. If I had to start over again, I would of sold this cart and bought a newer controller cart and saved money.. Here's my 83 with a newer IR body, custom 7" lift, 24x12x10 tires, kit that moved the front suspension foward 2" (needed to clear 24" tires), etc..

Before


After

You might want to give PlumQuick a call on your motor as well... they are a SPONSOR here on BGW and have an excellent reputation.
