True. But they advertise these carts as state of the art and claim developed by dealers after years of experience. If Yamaha, Club Car, Ezgo.... All have better ride, then they could easily do it or at least offer an upgrade. You don't need to go larger than stock tires on any of these other carts for a decent ride. All 3 I named also use same suspension on lead acid battery carts as they do for optional lithium and they ride fine either way. It's not rocket science, just need to have an engineer, mechanic, or tinkerer figure it out.

The seat when in the down position sits on the hard lip plastic. This does not help, plus it grinds plastic on plastic. I actually got some 1 wide x 3/16 thick foam tape and put on the inside lip (cart side) when the seat comes down. In my opinion this minor change seems to help the smoothness of the ride slightly. Although maybe just in my head. But it does not grind plastic on plastic anymore.
Added the foam striping as you suggested. Wow. Amazing difference in ride. Thank you!

If anyone has a suggestion please share. I have even thought about trading for a polaris GEM which I believe has an independent suspension.
On the street is my best ride. On-course is the majority rough ride issue.

Will the disc brakes clear a 8 inch wheel?
