Club Car 48 Volt 8 Passenger Limo Run Time


New Member
I recently purchased a 97 Club Car 8 passenger limo 48v electric cart. I love the cart but the cart has no run time and batteries last only 15 to 20 minutes with 6-8 people on board. Motor is D377, controller is 300 amp, batteries are 2007 trojan t-890. Wires are 4 gauge. Tires are stock 8.5", no lift. Terrain is hard packed sandy-dirt road at a lake and is very flat. Other 2+2 48 volt carts run all day in this area. I realize I am doubling the weight but hoped cart would run most of the day on a charge.

How long should the charge last with new trojans installed? Should I change anything else or throw in the towel and buy a gas version?
