How slow is it uphill? How steep of a hill? A loss of power on a hill with a stock cart is normal.

Sams club has 8 volt batteries for 98 bucks a piece. They are labeled with Energizer Brand and manufactured by Johnson Controls. Mine weighed in 6 LBs heavier than the old red top trojans I was replacing.. Extra lead is good..

Brakes and shocks are pretty straightforward to anyone who has ever done drum brakes before.. Shocks are simply two bolts, easy. Might not help the ride unless they are completely blown out or leaking badly

It's going 1 to 2 mph up a small grade. On a big hill it will
have power surges to get it up the hill It
will see a small grade and it slow down to nothing
. I even tried it in reverse on a small hill
to see if it work different but no luck .

Fully charge the batteries and let sit for 8 to 12 hours, then take a reading of each battery and post your readings. Also take a voltage reading of the whole pack. Sounds like a battery issue...

My cheapy Autocraft batteries weighed in at 71.8 lbs and were rated at 128min@56amps versus the T-890 132mins@56amps. They seem to work well so far for me. How are yours holding up? BTW the Advance guy hooked me up for $55x out the door for a new set of 8 volts.

well I had two dead batteries and four low batteries so I replaced them all and did the 4 gauge at the same time.. I think they are just starting to break in but pack voltage is hovering around 58-59 and sometimes I even see 60..
