9mph, that is smoking!!!!!! :lhmo: Are they brand new batteries? 49.5V's is only a 70% charge. Charge your batteries and see if it helps. New batteries take several charges to break-in. Read the sticky at the top of this forum.

6 month old batteries should be in the 51-52v range after a charge. What speed did the cart do before the new batteries? 9 mph could be about right if it's on speed code 1.

Just a thought, could a stuck reverse microswitch cause this?

Open up your V-GLIDE and make sure the wiper arm components are clean, making good contact and move from lowest contact point when at rest and goes to uppermost contact point when accelerator is pressed to floor . . . do this in addition to resolving your battery charge situation . . .
