Default Slow Acceleration

I have a new to me 94 DS that is painstakingly slow on acceleration.
The cart was rarely used and is in primo condition
It is a 36v system
It has new, June 2014, Trojans
It has new batt cables
It has 22" Sahara Classic tires
It will run 25mph flat out on level ground
All connections seem to be tight

If I don't get a little run at it I can't get it on my trailer.
Any Ideas?

Torque equal amps. You don't have enough amps.

Oversize wheels = lower torque!

The problem was there before going to larger tires.

6 is stock on most carts, 4 is a popular upgrade, 2 is general not needed unless the cart is to be upgraded with a really big motor or need a lot of torque. Another thought is your soleniod big enough and/or up to snuff, same to be said of your controller. These guys have everything to do with delivering amps and torque.
