Welcome to BGW! low budget and performance upgrades should not be in the same sentence! Is your cart a Regen 1 (F/R toggle switch) or a series cart (F/R lever)? How old are the batteries and how fast does it go now? What are you looking for?

Yea those words were incorrectly phrased!im going to say it is a lever type f/r.batteries are about 4 days old.interstate deep cycle 128mins at 56amps.not sure if they will hold up but got the shop discount.as far as speed im guessing around 15 to 17 mph roughly.just wanting semi mild keep in mind this is for a ten year old girl.....but i want to have fun too!

My daughter is most impressed by the radio. Look for a radio/mp3 player overhead, some nice wheels, and maybe a dash cover. And if you don't have a rear seat get one. My kids love to haul their friends around the yard.

Well, if it has a lever f/r then its a series cart. If you can find a 36V series motor then that would be your coolest upgrade. That would push you up to 20-25mph.

I have a 2000.5 ds, series. Put 10 inch wheels and low profile tires on it. The rims are not offset, so no mods were needed. Also like the idea of a 36 volt motor if there is nothing else that has to be changed.

In a series cart you can slap a 36v motor in there and boost speed and torque...... not a mod I would suggest for a 10 yr old driver, but a very economical one.
Make sure you have no wires coming front the tail of the motor before you proceed. This would indicate some type of regen or shunt wound motor. Not series.
