How to Increase the Speed of an Electric Cart


Most recognized for the existence on golf courses around the world, electric carts and club cars are popular for their convenience, but known for their limited speed. While many carts top out at around 15 miles per hour on the course, you can increase the speed of your electric cart in a variety of ways. Whether you are using it as a recreational vehicle, or just want to move faster on the course or around your property, increasing the speed is a possibility for your club car.

  • Remove any extra racks, equipment, clubs, windshields or accessories from your cart. These could slow your cart down and prevent them from moving at its fastest speed.

  • Power wash your cart with a hose and soap. Remove any dirt, dust or grime from the cart that could slow it down or keep it from working properly. Be sure to clean the wheels.

  • Check to see if anything is restricting the gas pedal from being compressed all the way. On many carts, there is a shaft blocking the pedal, which can be removed with a wrench and screwdriver.

  • Add larger tires to your cart. While the engine will still produce the same revolutions per minute, larger tires will allow the cart to cover more ground with the same rpms.
