Default Buying a Yamaha. Which one

I am about to buy one of two carts, a $2500 or a 2008 Drive for $2600. Any suggestions on which one would be better? Are the prices in the ball park? Both are very clean carts but I am leaning toward to the 2008 since it is only $100 more and 3 years newer. Anything to look for that should scare me away?

I know that the early Drive models had some clutch issues. Is the first cart a G22? If so, they're great carts.

I'd prob take the G22 also. But i will say, rear axle stuff and steering stuff is cheaper for the newer Drive.

For a couple hundred dollars plowmans can have the poor clutches in the g29 ripping and rolling for you. Along with the the performnace kit you will be very happy with the outcome. Either way you go there are nice upgrades to get the most out if your cart from plowmans.
