Default EZ Go 2+2 Sport -- white smoke from tailpipe after flipping

I have a brand new gas Ez Go Sport 2 + 2 that I bought from a local golf cart vendor. It had some accessories added to it, big wheels brushgaurds, etc. We've been using it and it had run great for about 4 weekends. Then my son found the governor and was messing with it a little. It was at about 1/4 of the way tightened (low end) and he pushed it to 1/2 way. Then he took it out for a spin in the park, and lost traction on some gravel and flipped it. Now there is white smoke and a weird smell coming from the back of the golf cart. I have not let it rest yet to see if it still smokes. I believe it was only flipped for a short amount of time.


Thanks for the help!

I would be guessing that's oil in the muffler burning off, I would keep an eye on the oil level and run it to burn it out.

white is usually water, blue is oil and black is gas - rich
however oil in a muffler would be a different thing

Thanks.

Day 2 went out and took it for a spin today. No white smoke. But it still smells very odd, like burnt rubber yet I was running on dirt all day. It's got heavy duty, thick threaded tires. Not sure If that makes a difference.


Thanks

Did you check to see if he bent an axle or something, and one of the tires is rubbing the inner fender or frame. I suppose the smell could also be from the drive belt, if something got dislocated, and the belt is rubbing against another part of the cart, you might want to check these things out. You should not be still getting a burned rubber smell, something is definitely not right and might put you to walking.
