Thanks for the input. I have been shopping at a local Club Car dealer, and he tells me electric is the way to go. Just as you said, more torque and less things to go wrong. i am leaning toward electric, but I am not excited about the $600 price tag for new batteries. I know there are upgrades for electric motors and higher amp controllers. Has anyone made these mods and were they worth doing? I think Club Car is the way to go.
