I put some 12in wheels on my cart and a new set of batteries. The cart just doesn't have quite the speed that I thought it would. Am I thinking wrong or what? As the batteries get broken in will the cart pick up some?

yes if you break the batteries in right the cart will pick its speed back up......when new they are only approx 75% after break in they come up to 100% you,ll know when they are broke in the cart will tell you......................

Cool! Thanks for the info. I have only charged the batteries about 5 times and only ran them for about an hour or so before recharging them. This is the proper way to break in, correct?

the manual says any time U run the cart plug it up, if it needs charge the charger will come on if not then it will just sit (NO BAD).
And since wet cell batteries do not have a memory keep it pluged in !

its gonna take 12 to 20 charge/discharge cycles before they are broke in and its important that once you plug charger in and they start charging that you leave it go until charger shuts off..............i have seen them break in with 12 cycles but most of the time its at least 15 cycles......................
