I think im going to go gas cause i think its cheaper than buying 6 batterys plus my dad is good with mechanics on small engines and can help me out with it. I am going to try to post pics tomorrow of my frame if that would help determine the year since i dont have the manuf number still on the frame.

Well if you REALLY want gas and actually want to learn about small engines ( I did because I wanted more gas toys). Cost me $600 total for taking a program. I got all the booklets from the test with over 1500 pages of information. Good choice, though.

Excuse my ignorance but what is it about an electric cart that makes it prone to getting stuck?

The electric cart is heavier by about 300 pounds but, it does produce much more torque.... Both work better on certain types of footing.

There are pros and cons to both.

Well it's an 87 or older. The little silver tag in the upper right corner of the second picture should have all the numbers you need to determine year. It appears to me it was a gas cart, because of the single battery box under the passenger side seat. I would go with either a habor frieght clone engine ,at least 11hp or go hear, and get a better deal on a bigger engine.http://www.maxtool.com/us/products/XP16HPE.asp.If your on a tight budget, and people will say I'm wrong, you could get one of the harbor frieght 6.5 hp engines and I can tell you how to get it closer to 11hp for the cost of the engine and about another $100.00
