Default gas vrs electric

Bone stock is a gas cart more powerful than electric? If so how much a difference? I have a buddy considering a new gas over electric. Also easygo or club gas?

I'm trying to tell him that electric is the way to go less maintenance issues than gas but hey we're here most likely because of issues in the first place.

Personally if he's not using the cart to hunt I would go gas , just upgrade the clutch. And off he goes, he don't have to worry about water level in the batteries, and he don't have to drop $800 every 5 years on batteries. Most first time cart buyers don't take care of the Batteries like they should. But if he does go gas differently go with club car and the Kawasaki motors they are built proof. But it all depends on where he's going with it and his intentions for use.

Hilly gravel roads, little off road but not muddy. Also will ride up to four people.

From what I've seen on golf courses, I would never go ezgo gasser. They make a slipping noise every time you start out. The club car gasser seem to start out a lot smoother. Jmo

Honestly if I didn't use my cart to hunt I would have a gas club car. A local dealer sells both Ez-Go and club car carts. and he said hands down the club car is the better cart and motor. He said the EZ-go motors are always being worked on. And that sense I have a club car already that he wouldn't sell me a Ez-go cart because I would be highly disappointed. I'm looking into getting a gas cart for around the house and neighbor hood.

Newer EZs have the 400 Kawasaki motors and with the new clutches have bunches of torque. That said, a sparky does put out more but both have their issues.

Why wouldn't you want a gas to use as a hunting cart?

I hear that those deer are afraid of them. Yet I almost ran over one the other night in my workhorse.

I'm a newbie here but have experience hunting from both (gas Club Car and Bad Boy mtv electric). I have become a believer in hunting from an electric cart. Not saying that a gas cart is bad but if you hunt in an area with no normal traffic sounds the deer are not accustom to the noise. Its amazing how many more critters you'll see out of an electric buggy. The biggest downfall is if your deer camp has no electricity. We have to run honda generators to charge.
