I just purchased a...

I just purchased a new 2018 Club Car Onward. They set it up to run a 25 mph. I use it as my transportation and need it to go at least 30 mph. How can I get more speed out of it?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

2018 Club Car Onward

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have done nothing yet as I have not owned an electric car before.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer

there's a few ways to get an electric cart to run faster

  • Install an ALLTRAX High performance controller
  • Install properly rated battery bus fuses
  • Change to a motor rated for the application (towing or speed?)
  • Increase battery capacity or voltage (Remember that cheap = low performance)
  • Use correct or increased wire size
  • Change in tire size (depending on application)
  • Upgrade differential gear set to match motor torque and speed to the axle

to be honest 25mph is already pretty quick for a golf cart and what a lot of owners try and improve to that level

I'd begin by investigating a larger wheel / tyre combination to increase the gearing
