Weight is weight so yes it will be like having another person on the golf cart.
What did he build it out of? Seems a bit heavy for a golf cart cage, but it would be good for more than one roll.Funny, a guy built me one but I'm sure I want it on because of the weight. It'd be like adding the weight of another man. So, that leads me into a question...will a 150 - 200 pound roll cage, affect the performance the same as a person of the same weight, I would presume it would. My brains says when I do have 4 guys on, it'd be like having 5 guys - am I thinking correctly? Will it effect climbing hills? Will it effect the handling, making it more top heavy? Is any of it a big deal?
Probably not, I guess no way to know; but, it was a combination of mud, drifting the rear-end, and hitting the side of a pond dam at full throttle. Like dirty says "...one time deal." But it does give me pause about the whole roof deal and not just a windshield frame. Would they have been able to clear themselves of the cart if it had a roof?Would wheel spacers have helped? I like the look of 1 in. spacers.
