Default Motor Swap

Has anyone done a Motor swap on a Star LSV? Trying to figure out if swapping for a DC to an AC motor will help with speed. Currently getting 22-23 mph on a full charge. Trying to get that up around 26-28 if its feasible. Any insight would be appreciated.

AC and DC drive systems have no interchangeable motors

Elaborate. I have 2 dealers putting together quotes for it.

It is far, far more than just a motor swap.

Everything that is part of the drive system between the battery pack and transaxle has to be changed.

Makes sense.

Know of any other options?
