Red face "slow" Precedent "need Speed"

I just purchased a 2004 gas Club Car, Precedent. It is "Slow".
What are some ways to get more speed?

There's some stickies in this section that will help you out. I THINK that the DS and Precedent are fairly smilar if not the same when it comes to the drive train.

Just had to do this myself a month or so ago with same model and year cart. Very easy but don't over do it or you could damage engine.

Remove black cover in bag well under sweater basket. Look inside to your left and find the governor arm. It has what I believe is a 7/16 nut that tightens the governor arm down to a little spindle that has a key pin inserted through it. Loose the nut a little and reach in and grab spindle and turn it with your fingers clockwise just a fraction of an inch. DO NOT turn more than a hair. Hold it in place and tighten nut. Try runnning your cart and see what you get. It does not take much!!!!!! Where I have mine set now all I need is half throttle to get the speed I prefer on the golf course.

Thanks for the tip!! I just got it done. I Have top speed now but it seems to not have a lot of power to get there. I have an ezgo and it seems to have quicker response to get to the top end.

Check for a worn belt. Measure with calipers. should be 1 inch. you will lose about 1 mph for each .07 inch wear.

That's good advice bonduranth...
but, this thread is 3 years old, I guessing he may have it taken care of by now!

You might want to check the last post date just above the user name before offering info!

I know the post was old but sometimes a person will scan the problems and go to them hoping that they have been solved. That way they know what to do without waiting for answers
