You can build more power, but if you cant get past the governor, it wont matter. More speed, Try a taller tire or a gear change.

If your smart and don't push it. Over-revving the engine will certainly cause damage and accelerate wear of the top end if ran above governed speeds for too long. The governor was not even on my cart when I got it, and after a top-end rebuild I put a small wire on the throttle butterfly slightly above "that sound of destruction" and don't hold it at that level for more than a few seconds as a safegaurd.

A new belt will ensure you are getting to the highest possible "gear." Changing out the old differential fluid for fresh fluid seemed to help me a bit. There is a tutorial for that in the EZGO Gas Tech section.
