Push it off a really big hill.


No seriously, push it off a really really big hill

The problem is there is no cheap way to make more speed in any motor driven vehicle. Especially in electric vehicles. Which drive system & voltage do you have?

It's slow? Yea its a golf cart. It was intended to be slow....... The title of your thread is an oxymoron. LOL

speed up + cart + cheap = not happening.

power = money and if you have a series cart, you will need lotsssss of it $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$
