Default Trying to speed up ez go

Have a 1998 ez go serial number 1122269 , I just picked up a 400 amp controller and this motor pretty cheap it is all in working order, just wondering what type of speed I'll get with controller and motor? Sticker on motor says high speed how much more horsepower is it then a stock fleet speed motor. Thanks

The best upgrade for a 36v series cart is 48v worth of batteries
Speed will increase by 33%

Oh yeah, toss that tiny solenoid in the trash & get a real solenoid.

Ok so I'm running the cart with that solenoid and the lead positive wire is heating up. Also the large stud on the solenoid is getting very hot. So if I upgraded the solenoid would it solve that problem and which one should I purchase?

Yes, will likely fix it. Get ScottyB's upgrade solenoid, or a Trombetta Bear.

Would this solenoid work fine?

I think so. Some people can that one Heavy Duty, but I have never used that model. The specs seem to match for your cart as long as you are still running 36v.

It worked no more heating up. Also found out the rear driver side breaks were not releasing so that was putting extra strain on everything I would imagine. The hub got very hot. Now I need a new break cable. Thanks for all the help.
