Default dealer said my club car cant change speed settings is this true

I have Club car serial a99. The dealer said that my year doesn't have the ability to change to a #4 speed setting or have the option to go to #3 either. He said mine can't be changed from factory is this true?

That is true. But if you want more from your cart put a 36 volt motor on and you will have speed setting 4. Only the newer carts from about 2003 up have the progamable speed setting.

How much Does the 36v cost and does it just swap in ( plug n play ) or do I have to change other parts also

A new 36v motor can cost $500 from Plum Quick, but as the 36v motors are Series wound it would only be a plug and play if your cart has a Series wound motor. If you have a Regen then it probably means a new controller, fwd/rev switch and wiring harness. You can get an upgraded 48v motor from the same source. Check their website

a99 on serial number should be a sereis cart. Post your serial number that will help. A used 36 volt should run from $150 to $200. It is an item you just have to look for. Pull your 48 volt off and install the 36 volt.

Default Re: dealer said my club car cant change speed settings is this true

I also am installing a 6 inch lift and 22" tires so that should give a little more top end speed not sure how much more than the 10 mph I'm getting now but still any is better. And I read somewhere also about changing magnets to trick the Cart to think it's going slower than it is. Can this be done on mine?
