can anyone offer advice on increasing speed with this ride? I know I can change motors or add batts but I would love to hear who has had the best luck with what... not much I can find out there.

Hey thanks a ton I will go do some hunting over there. I think I could probably just add another batt but not to sure about extra fusing or any need to change the controller to handle the extra voltage. Also, looking for any aftermarket kinds of parts... been a long time for me since my cart building days...I guess about 35 years.. but I have a 7 year old who is getting out classed by his little buddies with Razor Ground Effects carts and he want's a fighting chance.. Ok so does dad. Thanks gseric69 really appreciate the help!!

i have a dune buggy too. It is slow because of the reduction gear. If you remove the engine cover you will notice the jack shaft gearing. I think this is to increase power for off road use and reduce top speed. The ground force cart does not have it. The guys at TNC scooters recommended upgrading to a 500w 36v motor but I haven't yet. My 24v escalade and thundercat are faster than the dune buggy.

well, so far i have seen none of you over at but thats ok. the esiest way to increase speed is adding a battery. the controllers can usually handle it, but you lose lvc (low voltage cutoff) that saves your batteries from being discharged too much and killing them. so you will have to monitor that yourselves from now on. dont forget the 36v charger too.

let me know if i can help.
