Default Anyone make lower gears for a 97 EZGO TXT?

Anyone know of gears that are lower than factory. I put 23" tires on and love the height but miss the get up and go.

Not sure about the gears, I was thinking dana offerd that rearend in another ratio like 14 to 1 but that little difference isn't worth the cost or trouble of changing it. Get Tom at CCP to hook you up a driven clutch, that'll fix your problem. Or you could always try the shorter belt trick.

The driven clutch machining is similar to a 28 DEGREE clutch?

I don't really know, I've never found a need to have one machined. my carts either have a shorter belt or the 28deg clutch. ask Tom

So the 28 clutch starts off much faster but won't go as fast?

No. what the 28deg clutch does is delays the opening of the clutch so the engine builds up more RPMs/horse power. the top speed will be the same with either 36deg or the 28deg. The machined ones could/should have a better overall top speed vs the factory ones, that kinda depends on what's done to it.

Well I ordered a 28degree clutch:) I am kinda excited if this helps with the lowend grunt. The cart performs much better than stock!

I put 22" tires on my stock workhorse and it really didn't want to go. My 36 degree was worn out and BROKE, so I bought the 28. You will be very happy with what you bought. That heavy, worn out cart will climb and can actually spin tires on a steep hill. Yours will be awsome.
It can run out to the revlimiter on the top and goes about as fast as I want to go. A 1" shorter belt gives real good (almost jerky) throttle response, but drops the top end speed. Not worth it with the 28 deg. clutch. Have lots of fun!!
