Default Dropping voltage

My buddy has a 1985 club car that he just put refurb batteries and new solenoids in. The cart won't go more than 8 mph forward and reverse. It seems to be dropping voltage when you drive down the road. It has 36 volts and then when you drive it down the road it drops to about 24 volts and drops more going up hill. What can we try to get more mph out of this cart? Thanks
