Default upping the speed a little

Ok here is what I have 96TXT dcs 48 volt 2 gauge cables alltrax dcx 400 205/65/10 tires.
with 8 6v batteries it almost hit 32mph. I'm now in the process of redoing the cart running 6 8v batteries and I'm looking for a motor that will get me closer
to 40 mph.
I work security here in the park where I live and at times I do need a little more speed, any sugestions ? thanks in advance

You need a higher gear in the rear end. Are the rear gears the stock gears now? Also something to consider is that these carts can be a handful at 40. My PDS cart will run 43 and it's pretty twitchy at those speeds.

yeah stock gears, I was thinking maybe something like a plumquick bandit motor, but then again that's why I asked, it doesnt have to be 40 somewhere around 35 would probably do it

You're probably on borrowed time turning the motor that many rpm's with the stock gears. You'd be wise to go to 8:1's to gain more speed vs turning a motor even more rpm.

Definitely for a stock, unbanded motor.

Thanks Terry for the info maybe I'll just put the stock tires back on and run it there.
it should run top speed about 30 with the new 6 8v batts instead of the 8 6v batts
