Default Ezgo marathon engine dies at full throttle

New to golf cart world ,I picked up a 1992 gas marathon model to ride around the campground. It runs good when starting and taking off but seems to loose power when hits a top speed. No backfiring or anything, if I let off the pedal and hit it again it picks back up speed, some one has already maxed out the governor adjustment. Is this normal ?? I Just figured it should hold one throttle speed on flat ground or is there some kind of limiter built in somewhere??

Is it a two stroke or four stroke? Mines a Ď92 and itís a 3PG.

Since the governor is already adjusted, I'm thinking it's bouncing off of the rev limiter. That cuts the spark.
