    Golf cart build.

    Hope this is a suitable place for it.

    So I go to a bunch of huge car shows every year and usually end up renting a cart from somewhere for a weekend. Anywhere from $150-250.

    I went to set up my rental for a show next month and my usual guy doesn't have any rentals free for a few months. So we got to chatting about me just getting a junker and fixing it up. Well, he has 3 2007 E-Z-Go TXT's in the back for $100 each. They are in decent shape, complete. No compression though.

    So, time to bring her back from the dead.

    I just ordered a complete gasket set and a piston ring set today hoping that will get it running.

    Immediate plans:
    -Initial de-grease and clean up(check)
    -Tear down and inspection
    -Remove body
    -Remove engine and disassemble
    -Clean fuel system
    -Clean carb
    -New battery
    -Get it running

    Future plans to be done before the end of July
    -Lift kit
    -Wheels and Tires
    -Stereo
    -Custom paint
    -New seat covers
    -Rear seats

    I'll update this as I go to just kinda keep track of it myself and if anyone else is interested O.O

    Gas is the only way to go! The 357 cc motor in my Yamaha seems much more peppy that the ez go. The newer ez go carts come with a 401cc Kawasaki engine and it's pretty bad a also.

    image.jpg Has anybody had success with the RHOX lifts? I'm gone lift but don't want to go spindles. From the installation videos, they seem pretty stout.
