You can test this at the controller to verify you are getting the full 5k-0 signal. If you are not getting a full signal you can observe the throttle linkage while somebody pushes the paddle to see where the slop is. Often times the mechanical slop can be repaired with good results.
well I am not sure of that since it ran the same way brand new in 98...I get what your saying but I really think this has got something to do with the controller and motor since it did this when it was new...but I will certainly check it out...we are just now trying to get it fixed...lol 16 years later...lol

I'm sorry, I didn't get that you bought this cart new and it is always run at 9 mph from your original post. 9 to 12 mph is the target speed for golf course carts.

why would this cart run so slow brand new if the linkage was worn...should have ran much faster being new in 98...that is why I think it is something else...cause it ran the same when it was new...as it does now...

. . . your cart should have a V-Glide Multi-step Potentiometer . . . open the cover and make sure the wiper reaches the high point contact when GO Pedal is depressed . . . also look for loose/broken/dirty wire contacts . . .
