  • Is It Safe to ride my golf cart on a slope or angle?
    by Michael Eddie
    Club Car's owner's manual states:

    My explanation:
    A 20 degree incline angle is close to a 37% grade so the answer is 20% not 20 degrees.
    Incline is also called pitch or rise and is a ratio of rise divided by run.
    The percentage of incline is rise/run x 100.

    Here is a example of incline:

    Here are some inclines vs percentages:

  • How Often Do I perform an engine oil change?
    by Michael Eddie
    A simple engine oil change can lead to a long healthy golf cart life and save you a lot of time and money in the future. Oil changes should be performed on all gas golf carts semi-annually or after 125 hours of running time.

    Key Tips:
    • Drain oil while engine is still warm. (Not hot!)
    • Drained oil should be pure with no large or obscure objects in it.
    • Tip or jack up the cart to ensure all the oil or debris has fully drained.
    • Clean oil filter with a solvent or replace.
    • Refill

  • How Often Do I service brake pads?
    by Michael Eddie
    Brake pads are made to last many years depending on the amount you use them. It is recommended to service your brakes annually or every 250-300 hours of use.

    The brakes are most commonly found under the driver side and passenger side rear wheels.

    Key Tips:
    • Examine and replace pads if necessary.
    • Use compressed air to clean brake dust.
    • If replacement pads are not needed, adjust brakes until desired performance is met. (Refer to your owners manual)
    • Lubricate moving

  • How Do I make my golf cart street legal?
    by Michael Eddie
    It varies from state to state. As long as you have the basics... lights, turn signals, windshield, wipers, mirrors, seatbelts and a horn you should qualify to register your cart as a golf cart or a custom vehicle.

    Do I need Insurance?
    In most states insurance is required on golf carts. Even if it is not required, look into it. I know you will thank it after you crash into that expensive BMW.

    How much does Insurance Cost?
    I've seen it range from as low as $50...
