So are Ya happy with the outcome? do the clutches shift like you want, are you able to shift from forward to reverse at idle.

I'm not sure about the clutches as I don't really know how to evaluate it. I can shift no problem. I still need to fine tune the idle. It idles a little low when cold and a little high when warmed up. Might stabilize as it breaks in. I am so far very happy with it. It is totally different than the stock set up. If a person is looking for the stock type set up they probably would not be as happy. I very happy about the additional power (torque). I have to finish mounting the ignition switch in a permanent location probably on the dash and getting the tach mounted. I'll keep you posted as I get to know it better!

There are some pretty good deals on tire/wheel and lift kits from the Sponsors here if you do so, I would:hattip:

How fast is the cart? If it's running over 25 mph you want to use a long travel lift. Spindle lifts and axle lifts use the OE front springs and at speed they are dangerous.
The LT's are pricey but well worth it.

Thanks Dirty, I think its about a 25 mph cart as it is, probably faster with bigger wheels and tires. But I don't really use it that way. I'm using it to haul stuff and people to the dock in the picture above. I really want it for clearance and looks but not looking to make it dangerous either. I added HD leaf springs in the back because I added a rear seat. Thanks for the info!

Axle or spindle lift will do then. Axle lift is a little more labor than spindle but they handle better than spindle lifts.

Hi. Sorry to resurrect and old thread, but I'm just wondering now that it's a year later if you're still happy with the setup. My 295 finally died and I am seriously considering the Vegas 625 upgrade.
