Its is a 48v with a v-glide. Not sure if that's series or regen.. I want it to be as fast as I can go and play 2 rounds of golf without a charge for when I play in tournaments...

all elec carts are slow going up hill.........doing the motor and controller will help but its the nature of the cart to slow down on grades............talk with scotty he can set you up in the right direction.............................

Just an opinion here, based on my experience. Upgraded cables and connections can and will help, especially on fresh batteries. my 36v loses very little now on hills, compared to 48v carts still running 6ga wire ( and not as well maintained )
P.S. Im running Scottys 4ga cables and have nothing but good to say about them. My 36v cart is very strong, and soon to be 48V!!

We need to know which drive system you have in your cart before we can suggest an upgrade to smoke your buddy's cart
