Golf carts for racing

Hi, I'm new to this group but not to working on golf carts. I have been working on carts now for 15 years and I just started another venture in drag racing them.

If you are in SC area this May 2011 come join us for a weekend of racing and showing off your cart in Pageland SC. If anyone has questions about there cart feel free to ask!

New Sport!! Combine Golf with Archery!

I have an idea for a new sport. If you combine golf with archery, you'd get Golfery! The concept is simple with only some minor modifications. Arrowheads now have a golf ball or ping-pong ball for a head. To get a hole in one, the player must hit the flagpole in the pocket. There are (3) 1 foot wide rings concentrically spaced around the flagpole. Inner ring = 1 stroke, middle = 2 strokes, outer = 3 strokes. If the arrow lands outside of the outer ring, the player must pick up the arrow and gently toss it underhand towards the pocket. Other than that, the standard rules of golf are followed. I don't have the equipment to test out my ideas. If someone here would try it out and PM me with the results and any suggestions that would be great.

Electronic Golf Cart Controller?

I live on a golf course and want to be able to take control of the electronic golf carts that come by my home.  My plan is to film the reactions of the old dudes that send their carts way ahead of them.  I realize this is probably taboo when it comes to golf but I think it would be funny has hell to watch their reactions when their carts move on their own.  Help me realize this and I will send you video of the fun.

What is the actual difference between these discs?  Or is it just a scam to make you buy more discs?

Slope Measuring

     I'm interested in making a yardage book for one of the golf courses i play at. The only problem is that i don't know an accurate way to measure the change in distance through elevation. For instance if a shot to a green with no change in elevation requires a 7-iron, then a shot of the same distance that is downhill should require a club that will hit the ball a shorter distance.       My question is, is there a formula of some type that i can enter the rate of change in slope and the distance, and get the actual distance needed for the shot.

Extra Large Helmet for Golf Cart

I have a Milwaukee Brewer themed golf cart and the only thing it is missing is a helmet for a roof.  It needs to be just a basic 80's baseball helmet (no ear flaps...like the ones they used to give away at the game) that is big enough to cover or replace the top of the my EZ-GO golf cart (about 80" long).  Has anyone seen one of these done before?  What kind of materials would I use to fabricate something like this?

Can you put solar panels on a golf cart? Answered

I don't know much about solar panels, energy, or electricity. But I'm curious they have electric carts, and small electric cars, that you just plug into your house and it automatically charges. Is it possible to put solar panels on the roof of a golf cart so that when the cart is parked the sun will charge the batteries while your like in the store or somewhere? Is it how long would it take the sun to charge six golf cart batteries? or would you have to use some sort of other type of batteries?

How fast can you spin your Golf Ball?

I played around with some balls placed into the airstream of a little blower. Everything light enough just "danced" in the air like being hold on invisible strings. But not so much the golf ball! You would expect those dimples are good for reducing air friction but do they also offer stability in some cases by making the ball spin? Check this video I recorded while playing - to me it looks like with a proper nozzle there is even more speed possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=014QkXuTL0o How fast can you make it spin?
