Default speeding up 84 Ez-Go

Does anyone have thoughts, or past experience, on ways to speed up a 84 Ez-Go? I was thinking about cutting a round out of the resistors. Good or Bad idea? Already went from 6 to 4 ga wiring it seemed to help more with the torque, which is nice too. Don't deed to haul *** just want to be a little quicker.

There are four speeds, three with resistors and the forth one connects the battery directly to the motor.

Cutting coils off the resistors will only effect the first three speeds.

If your batteries are up to par, (38.2V when measured 12 hours after the charger shuts off automatically.) and the cables/connections are good, your motor is turning at its max RPM.

You can get more speed by installing taller tires, but you lose torque when you install taller tires.

To get more motor RPM, you'll have to increase the battery pack voltage, but the resister coils can't take higher voltage, so you will have to convert it to a controller type drive system.

How long do you think a resistor cart would run at 42v there is 1 cart here at the park I'd like to beat probably just on a 1 time basis probably not more then 5 minutes on the run his taller tires do me in on the top end


It's the bosses cart lol
