Default Sell or keep

Just purchased a 98 DS in really rough shape. I've stripped it down, replaced all spring bushings, bronze "king pin" bushings, repacked the wheel bearings and replaced the rear brake shoes and springs. My question is do I leave it stock and sell it or lift it with a 6" and 12in wheels? It will be used 2-3 weekends a month from April-sept at Lake Gaston. Will I be happy with this model cart being lifted or should I sell it and get a gas cart?

guess the real question is How old are the batteries. You figure new batteries will run you about 1000.00.

Just use it for a season (or a little while) and if you want to lift it after that, do it. Only takes some planning and a day (weekend) to lift it. DS is easy to modify...lots of options.
Have fun!

Sell if its a 36 volt (unless you want to spend more money on upgrading that- still worth it but not cheap) or if its a 48 volt, keep it!

Never seen a set of batts for $1000. Usually 550-600 for 8v

Thanks for the replies. It is a 48volt regen cart. I've heard that there were some problems with the 98-99 regen carts (before they came out with the IQ). Any truth to that? The batteries are L9 and one A10. I assume that means that they are Dec 2009 & January 2010? They seem to be ok, but I'm researching the best way to check them out. Anybody have a link handy?
