I recommend a gas Club Car because...
1. They have aluminum frames that cannot rust or corrode from sand and salt
2. They have the most torque in stock form. Their engines have VERY flat torque curves
3. You can send your driven clutch in one piece to Cart Parts Plus for machining and a power spring installation. That will really get you moving.
4. They're uberly reliable.
I would recommend a 1999 or newer cart.
