if its only reading 36 volts thats not good........check each battery and load test each one...........as for v-glide you can open it up and see what the movable arm is doing......is it sliding from start to finish or stopping short......you,ll need to inspect it.......................................

Usually if the cart starts out strong but weakens or slows after a short ride the batteries are suspect. Connect a hand held meter to the pack and let us know how low the pack voltage drops when she slows.

Is it a resistor coil or ESC drive system?

How are you load testing?

this cart has a controller no resistors and to load test i put the cart in front of a wall and press the gas down and hit the gas to the floor and then check each battery at 50% then 100% every time i try it i never get less than 5.7v

. . check/clean all connections in Vglide including wiper arm and the contact points for wiper arm . . . otherwise, assuming batteries are good, you may be having controller or motor issues . . .
