Default What do I need?

Hey I am new to this forum and the golf cart world. Just this saturday the 22nd i got my first golf that belong to my great grandmother. Looking at the vin # i think it is a 1990 electric Club car. Its got brand new batteries ( replaced 3 years ago but never used) and is in mint condition. I charged it up till the charger automatically shut off like it said it would but when i drove it it didnt seem like it had the speed/ get up and go as it should. Ive seen other club cars that rip. Is there anything that will juice it up or am i stuck with it

:h elp:

Thanks

Welcome aboard. I'm kind of new myself but you might want to define what "get up and go" you are expecting. I've learned from this forum that stock electric club cars around that year will run about 12 mph. If you are looking for more then that it's easy. Money!
I'm sure the pros will chim it to help and give you more advise.

Enjoy

I'm sure someone else with a little more knowledge than myself will jump in on this too, but the batteries may be having a hard time from being dead for 3 years. If they haven't been maintained and were just sitting without a charge for that long, they may not give you the performance you were expecting.

I'm in the same boat. 2009 CC Precedent 48 v 4 X 12's. Use a portable GPS to check speed. Mine is 13 mph which is norm for a fleet car. There are multiple fixes. Mine has 8" wheels, I plan on changing to 12" which I expect to gain 3-5 mph. Other speed codes can be purchased for ~$150 to go 19.6 mph max. Good luck.

Welcome to BGW! great little cart but, Sorry, there is no easy way to say this. Batteries left to sit for 3 years are ruined. Start shopping for new batteries.
In the meantime you can recharge these daily and just run it a little in between charges... they may come up a little more but run time will always be diminished. Scotty
