why not to ground to the frame on an electric cart

Hydrogen gas is produced during the charge/discharge cycle and all that is needed is a spark to go boom!
The electrolyte is 35% h2so4 and there are gallons of it waiting to be launched.

If b- is attached to the frame, any metal to metal contact between any of the high current carrying cable connectors and the frame could:
A. Weld the short circuit in place
b. Explode one or more batteries
c. Spray gallons of sulphuric acid all over everything in the vicinity.

While isolating the frame doesn't eliminate all the safety hazards lurking under the seat, it does mitigate some of the avoidable ones.

When working under the seat, always wear safety goggles, full face shield is preferred.
Avoid using wrenches long enough to short between battery posts if dropped. (torque spec for battery terminals is only 100 in/lb, so you don't need much leverage)
ezgo and other cart manufactures advocate using insulated wrenches. (personally, i believe insulated tools tend to create a false sense of security)
the batteries themselves are the source of the hazards and they cannot be turned off.

speed wiper contact & board



Your description of the throttle problem is classic speed wiper contact & board contact failure.
Have a look before the fire starts, lol. The 'pzit' sound is the sound of arc welding the movable contact mounted at the end of the throttle linkage to the stationary speed selection lugs.... hope that makes sense.
