Anything without independent suspension is not fun to ride around on. Check out the Tracker off road EV.

Preacher, I have a Lester summit 2. I was not able to use the open space in the battery compartment opposite the controller because I use an separate 12 volt auxiliary battery to run all my extras. Cart batteries are for running the cart only. So I had to make some slight modifications with a little bar stock to fit it in the cart. I also removed the male end of the charger cord and fitted it with an outlet made for use on RV’s and motor homes. All I do is throw an extension cord in the truck when I take it on a trip.

Thanks, I just looked it up, and it appears to be fine charger. It will probably require some fabricating to make it fit mine too. I will use the DPI until it dies.

You better. The new DPI is junk.

Stay away from Bad Boy Buggies as stated above. The shop I help out at won't work on'em because they are so hard to get parts for and are generally considered expensive junk. We turn them away unless it's something simple. At some point you can put so much money into a stock golf cart with controllers, 4WD, lifts, lights and motors that you will need to refinance the house..SHEESH!

Doing the upgrade work yourself will save some money but retail price on upgrade hardware is not exactly cheap. The Beast seem like solid carts from the specifications but I have no personal experience with them.

I have a Beast I purchased from a member here in Feb 2013.
Only electric cart I've had. Replace the batteries in 2019.
Had to replace the controller due to possibly lightening hitting the shop about 4 years ago.
Had to replace 2 of the cables as well, as I let one of the connections get loose and almost burned up a battery.

I took the larger tires off it and put it on smaller tires on it right away, as the larger tires aren't needed on our place and I felt it would give me more miles and less strain on the cart.
It will spin the tires and throw your head back if you want.
It's 2wd but the rear differential is locked, and it makes a big difference.

Best advice I can give is to check the water levels in the batteries regularly, and don't ever let the level get low enough for the lead in the battery to be exposed.
Keep the batteries and terminals clean.

I'd buy another if needed.

God Bless,
David B.

I had under $3K in the Black Beauty when I put it together in 2014. There isn't much on it that hasn't been upgraded except the motor. I left this one on 36 volts, but I have clocked it at 26 mph with the GPS. It's been stuck a couple of times, but the winch gets it right out. It has a 500 amp controller, and it's turned down to 80% because of the stock motor and it still being 36 volts. It could be upgraded to 48 volts with just new batteries, but I doubt I will ever do it.

This is an easy cart to work on yourself. I didn't try to make it pretty, but it does all I need it to do.

I made it as ugly as possible so that nobody would ever wanna borrow it. Or steal it. It has worked so far. I think the rattle can paint job has really helped.
