Default Batteries bad?

I just bought a 2010 club car prec. With 8volt batteries and had the dealer upgrade the motor to a plum quick bandit before I even picked it up......when I got it home I installed a Scottyb digital volt reader and when fully charged it says 50.7 volts, my problem is when I drive it drops down to 44 volts under load and then jumps up to 48.? When I let back off.....are my batteries shot? I can only get about 18 mph top speed also(I am running 23" tires and stock controller)

Welcome to the show! Going from full charge to 44 under load is normal. Only hitting 18mph with a Bandit and 23" tires could be an issue. Most folks get over 22mph with that motor. Call PQ and ask them why? You may need a bigger controller with those 23s. Good Luck!

ps: U can always load test your batteries, but you will need a meter on each battery (one at a time) to find the bad one.
