Default Greatest weekend!

Well, I had the greatest thing happen to me over the weekend! While the family was up north on our property, the kids went on a little golf cart ride on the Club Car and got stuck out in the middle of the property, on the two track trail. But you say to yourself how can that be a good thing? Well after going and getting them out of the rut and going again, this gave me the excuse and reasoning to justify the 6 inch lift and bigger tires on the CC! The wife has given me the blessing to go ahead and get it done!!

One thing at a time! After I get the lift and tires done and it wants to creep up the hills, then I can hit that one up!!

Seriously will the lift make it that much harder to move? How much speed will be lost to an increase in tire size?

Lift isn't going to slow you down... and the tires on dry pavement should give you an increase in speed... but will slow down your takeoff and reduce your bottom end torque, like starting off in second gear instead of first gear for a bit of a weak analogy. No problem though when taking the wife out in the cart and saying; "Man... I wish those guys at BGW would have told me about upgrading the motor before I started this project!"

Sounds like a great plan to me, thanks for the idea!

No, I spent the whole last day walking the property (20 acres) and didn't find any yet. This is my first year looking, so not sure if I was looking in the right spots, but none so far!
