Default How can i take off governor/ turn up the the speed to my Ez Go golfcart?

I just got a used Ez golfcart and I want to know how to take off the governor and make the golfcart go faster. My Ez go is electric with two seats + two rear facing seats. It has the medium sized motor. I'm not sure exactly what model but the car that delivered it said that I could take out the governor and turn up the speed but he couldn't show me how. any help is appreciated

theres no gov on an electric cart, you are limited by the rpms of the motor. what model do you have? some have the ability to "chip" the motor.

There are no free speed improvements possible on an electric cart ...

Sure there is Scotty,

You can always drive it off a cliff !

Sounds like you got sold a bill of goods from whoever told you that the 'governor' could be removed from an electric cart

Depending on who you got it from, I might be concerned about the shape of the batteries, controller, etc.

Hopefully you didn't get lied to too badly and you can get it goin the way you want. If it's a dog, you may have other issues that are going to require an investment of $$$

Unfortunately, as stated above, there are no "Free upgrades" with a sparky.

Welcome to BGW!
As was mentioned before, there's no free lunch but, depending on what you have, there may be a $5 upgrade available.
What is the model number?
Did you buy the cart from a dealer or privately?
How fast does it go now?
How fast do you want it to go?
How about posting a picture of the new cart.
