Default removing the RPM limiter ground strap

So Im trying to understand these "sticky" directions and want to go directly to the last step first, but where in the heck is the RPM limiter ground strap?

Pictures would be awesome! Thanks in advance!!!

So you want your Club Car to get up and go? You've come to the right post.

First off, you must realize you're ultimately hurting your cart by doing this! You're also risking hurting yourself.

Under the driver side floorpan, you will see a rod linking the gas pedal to the black box pivot. Remove this rod and lengthen it to the longest it will go without being wobbly. Make sure the spring actuated hold downs are back in the same position they came off in. Before you replace this, loosen the nyloc nut on the accelerator pedal return spring until there are only about 1/4" of visible threads left on the end of the rod. Replace the accelerator rod.

On the primary accelerator cable, there is a spring between it and the governor arm on the transaxle. Gather at least 3 zip ties of around 4" length. Put 3 on the spring in equally spaced increments. Have a friend hold the gas pedal to the floor in maintenance mode. Tighten each zip tie equally until the engine shuts down. You have two options at this point: either cut the zip ties and put new ones on SLIGHTLY looser, or put a small amount of cable back into the black box. You can also remove the ground strap from the RPM limiter assembly and tighten the zip ties all the way down, but this would take your engine into the "danger zone" RPMs.

Do you have a real need for speed?

If so, do not do any of the steps aforementioned EXCEPT removing the RPM limiter ground strap! Remove your access panel on the rear body. On the governor arm atop the transaxle, there is a clamping device that holds the arm tight to the shaft coming out of the transaxle. Loosen the 11mm nut on that about 3 turns. Spray a SMALL AMOUNT of WD-40 directly around the shaft and ensure the arm moves freely. Now you have successfully, completely bypassed your governor. Now, BUY A TACHOMETER!!!

The RPM limiter is the black box, mounted front center of the engine. The ground Wire (it’s not really a strap so dunno why the called it that) is the brown wire with an eyelet connector that’s bolted to the mounting bracket for the limiter.

Unbolt it, or cut it, and tape it off so it can’t touch anything metal.
