Oh, I forgot to mention, I also bought rear disc mechanical brakes for $229. I figured I better give myself a little better stopping power.

Pay attention to the rear rims with the disc brakes. I purchased a set of wheels from another member because of this. The rim is smaller toward the center, which will require a wheel spacer

Some lift kits increase width and height. These are best. Add some wheel spacers in the back and you have the most stable lift possible. At 4" you don't have to worry too much about adding width. IMHO.
Yea...I'm bad about putting big holes in the bucket all at once. Harder to notice pinholes though.

I must confess, you must be right Scotty, the kids already flipped my cart over.
My kit widened the front a tad but not the back. Looks like wheel spacers next! Quit giving me this kind of info or I'll never be able to order my contol package.

Where is the best source for wheel spacers? Is it best to set the cart up first then determine space needed?

. . . that may alleviate "guess work" . . . and only purchasing the spacers once . . .

Most manufactures will give you the amount their kit will add to the cart's width. One kit I use adds 6 inches to the front width ... I have on one cart added a pr of 3" spacers to even out and on another cart added only 2" spacers to keep that wider front 'pre-runner look'. It's a matter of personal choice.


Ebay has some good spacer deals sometimes, 4 on 4 (4x4) is the pattern and 1/2 x 20 is the stud thread.

Scotty, with my setup, I noticed there is a half speed connector on the controller. Is it possible to use half speed only when cart is in reverse?

Reading the Alltrax website, it says if pack+ is applied to this terminal, and then reprogram and check the box. But what is pack+. Do I need to run another microswitch for reverse, and send the signal to the 1/2 speed terminal?
