Default Tips/mods to extend drive time

What if anything can be done to get more drive time out of these carts?

What battery setup do you have? What condition are batteries?

the std 48V setup.
Or add batteries but where the heck can they fit?

I guess the question is can the motor be modified or replaced with a more efficient one?

What kind of run times do you get now between charges? My run times were low ( 40 min ) and I found out I had a weak battery. Changed it out and my run times have increased a lot!

40 miles?
By my calculations you will need 1.5 golf carts to travel that far in one day.
