Gas also i have had them both and something else when those relays go bad they are not cheap either .

I have a 05 EZ car gas now and will never go back to electric again.

We're putting together an electric that had been given to us. Batteries are going to be $700 plus a complete rewire, and 4 tires. ops: ops: ops:
If I were to 'purchase' a cart it'd be gas for all the above mentioned positive reasons. ZERO maintenance compared to electric.

My 28 ft. Hallmark, has cabinets on both sides in the front, like about 4" being able to put a cart in it. So i traded for a 250 Honda Recon, with racks front and basket back. Best choice i ever made, i can put extra fuel, battery jumper, air tank in the basket and it will pull a 3,000 lb car no sweat. I'm seeing more ATV's at the track for this use than golf carts lately, too me it's a better choice.
But as far a carts go the gas is much more dependable than electric.

I have a Recon 250es but the wife says it's hers. For the price of a 4 wheeler I can get a good used golf cart. Most used atv's around here are pretty beat up. I can have passengers ride safely with me on the cart.

Here she is At St. Joe State Park

I got LUCKY on the trade, I bought an old Monza 1/2 chassis car that was beat up and illegal, i wouldn't drive it around the yard, let alone down the race track, i took all the parts off of it that i wanted, and traded for a 1 yr. old recon, that still had the tets on the tires. I don't have young'ins so it's mostly adults in my pit.
