yes but it wasnt doing it in te other cart i took the motor out of. once it gets to top speed it, for lack of another term, surges. does it have some sort of high low switch? any ideas are appreciated

No it doesn't have a high/low switch...sounds almost like a pot box issue.

A pot box is the throttle...it is sorts like or variable resistor. E-z-go's throttle runs from 0 ohm (0% throttle) to 5k ohm (100% throttle) You will have to get a volt/ohm meter to check it.

Follow the accelerator linkage under the cart. When you press the gas, you are moving the potentiometer.
