Default Club car goes faster in reverse than forward

I just installed a new motor, controller, solenoid, and f/r switch on my 48 v club car ds, series model. Needless to say I was excited about the new additions to the cart, along with my 8 year old son. Put the cart in forward, it didn't feel any faster than before. When I put it in reverse it about slung me put of the seat and hauls butt. My question to the experts is, can I get that speed in forward instead of reverse? How do I fix it?

Oops sorry I see you did an f/r switch that's most likely wired wrong.

You can try the s ones also and leave the a ones switched.

Sounds like you may have 1/2 speed reverse activated in forward.
Maybe the wires on the 3 blade micro switch need to be swapped. (green & white)
