Default Looking at a 2010 drive

Been stuck in the 80s so know my way around a g1 but looking at a 2010 drive been reading about the team clutches and how the bushings wear out... When I look at the cart and if the bushings are bad is there a way to tell with out taking the clutch apart will it have play? Also planning on taking compression guage a long what should it be? Anything else I should be looking at?

I have a 2011 Drive that was a fleet cart. The company I bought it from cleans them up and calls them refurbished. The first thing they do is remove the Team drive clutches and replace them with a newer style JW-8 drive clutch. The cart still had the Team JW-1 driven clutch and it worked out fine (22mph) with governor tied back. Replace the drive belt with a Kevlar heavy duty belt and you will be fine.

Most team clutches may be junk... it's best to add that to your budget.
If it's not bad now, it's when will it go bad.
Or you can budget for the newer jw8 clutch setup but it's about $450 for both with belt
Or call plowman for his setup

Would this be the same for a 2012 model?

Engine clutch sticks closed then the rear clutch might get grooves in it ...
That seems like a common problem with them from what I've read and seen.

The early Team implementations seemed to have problems shifting. There were all sorts of "workarounds" proposed to correct these issues. But honestly, I have a 2007 Drive with the Team setup and I don't seem to have any real issues with it. But, I've had both clutches rebuilt by Don Plowman, he installed a spring in the primary, and I'm using a premium belt (also from Plowman's) and it shifts smoothly and will always return completely to "low gear" when stopping.

The newer replacement clutches are better, but the Team clutches aren't that bad if you give them some TLC.
