How to Make a Golf Cart Go Faster

By Bobby Ingram

Owning your own golf cart enables you to always have a set of wheels ready to take you around the links. Most electric golf carts have a governor on them, which greatly limits the speed of the vehicle. By turning the governor off, you can increase the speed of your golf cart in only a few minutes.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step 1
Remove any clubs or obstructions loaded in the back of the cart.
Step 2
Unscrew the plate behind the cart's seat.
Step 3
Remove the plate to gain access to your governor.
Step 4
Locate the metal T-shaped governor, and pull it toward the metal rod located behind it.
Step 5
Secure it to the rod using the rubber band.
Step 6
Re-attach the back plate to your cart, and take out your cart to test your new speed.
