How is it possible to "set" and electric cart to go faster than the preset from the factory? Is your neighbor's cart a street legal cart?

There is software that is used by the factory or authorized technicians to set the limits. That software is available and many people can adjust it for you if you want to go faster.

However, remember the golf cart is a glorified lawn mower and not a dumbed down racing car. The suspension was not designed to go much faster and it can become unstable.

Wait until there is a need to avoid something on a cart doing 25 mph. Not much hope for a quick stop either.

My wife constantly complains that I need to get the brakes fixed on the passenger side of our car.
