Default Lithium or not

Another research question
Lithium lowers weight, does lower weight make the CoG change significantly with a 6-inch lift? I flunked physics LOL

It does somewhat but lifting lifts the batteries which raises the CG. Going to lithium will reduce that effect.

Lithium conversion reduces traction. That may or may not be a consideration for your application but it is a real affect of losing 30% of the cart weight.

Appreciate the info, I drive 99% street so the few 100 feet in an alley will be no issue.
My concern was for stability in turns. Especially for someone not use the cart's characteristics driving.
