Default G 16. Brakes

I have got my cart moving pretty good now.... So that's not a problem anymore... But. Now slowing down at times has puckered the ole hole a time or two... I need brake shoes I'm sure... But are the stock brakes good for road speeds.... 40 mph.. And also. Tries to wander a little now.. Pretty bad over patched pavement.. As I only ride on hard surfaces.. Around the beaches ... Pretty sure its a tie rod end... Right side...

Rear drums only is totally inadequate for 40 mph speeds! At minimum, get some front disks on there. Golf carts were never intended to go that fast. My lifted cart goes 30 with rear disks only, and i would not want it to go any faster...i already rolled it over once (at low speed, luckily).

i have the plowmans rear clutch & belt & it is much tighter than factory one was so i just let off the gas & it slows down quite quickly. i have only had to use the brakes down hill. if you want disk brakes up front you must get the long travel lift kit to make room for them or so i was told by Jakes
