in one word NO ,, not enough H P or torque , also it would loose reverse , if you do go with a gas engine in the elect cart I would guess that an 11 hp would give you a little less than the elect setup , the golf cart is much heavier than a go cart .

When you convert torque you loose a little ,, when you don't have enough to begin with what would converting it help ?

I think it would work if you pulled the body off, got rid of all non needed bolts and walked beside it while steering and holding the gas down with your hand.
