Default Buy new RXV or Upgrade 98

Have a 98 ezgo gas It is used alot in the winter to bring kids to ski hill and in spring and Summer to "play in the Wood's" would you do a frame off rebuild of the 98 or buy and lift etc. a 2010 RXV. I like the bigger engine in the RXV and reliability of a newer Cart.

First, find the cost. See how much your rebuild would cost, and how much the RXV would cost after selling your TXT. Next, what do you use you car for? Do you use it on the street and course or off-road? What kind of top speed are you looking for?

Ezgo now makes a high speed drive train. Mine has great speed while the engine sounds like it is idling. If you do the frame off I would definatly upgrade the drive train.

Gotta love the new Kawasaki engine. I don't know where he's supposed to get a new drivetrain at all, let alone a reasonable price, though. If you want the new drivetrain, get a new or refurbished car, and make sure it is a one-cylinder, 401cc Kawasaki engine with the clutch and pulleys on the passenger side, opposed to driver side like on yours.

Ya, I bought a refurbished one from a local dealer. I had a CC and there is no comparison between them. The only thing I don't like is the low profile tires. It rides like its got wooden tires on it. Going to see about changing them next year maybe. I have even had my golf club strap come loose and the clubs went rolling. Thats not good when you have 2000 dollars in clubs.

I use the cart 98% of the time off road or in snowy condition's The 98 has been throught heck and back (3 Kids:>). So I guess the real question then is "is it worth the extra money to buy a 2010 RXV with the kawasaki engine or buy an 07" both will need to be upgraded with wheels and tires and lift kit. the $1,900 diference in price will probally be eaten up by the upgrades to the 07 speed gears etc.

The RXV is built more for on road use rather than off-road use. The TXT now comes with the new engine, barney1golf has one in his TXT. The new engine makes a huge difference, so if you want more power I would recommend a new or refurbished TXT with the new engine, if you are fine with where you are at, rebuild yours.

The dealer I dealt with already raised the cart 2" and installed 12" wheels a nd tires. It was priced at 4995.00 and came with the 2 year factory warranty. I added the seat, windshield, and changed the type of rims that were on it.
