for the SB V1 Pro Carbon ( thats what you basically have, it has the stepped deck correct) If you can find it, I would look for at a minimum a Kose style motor mount. This is similar to what is used on the V2 series motor mount, it holds MUCH BETTER and allows a better gearing range.

As for upgrades, look into getting a 74 tooth spur gear. They should fit the chassis and will give more gearing range.

Its a good club car, highly durable too. If you do an SB V2 series, go with the Pro version. There are alot of upgrades in it that really step it up.

Look on rc10b4.com general forum section. They have a thread with all V1 info you need. A FAQ too is available. PM me your email address and I'll get it to you.

Good Luck!
