Watch this 118-mph golf cart blow away the world record
A business called Plum Quick Motors is dedicated to pulling even more speed out of these usually dawdling little buggies. The company offers high-performance electric motors for golf carts, and to prove what these machines can do, Plum Quick launches them down the drag strip.
The business has been quite successful at making some seriously peppy buggies, too. In October 2013, one of Plum Quick's vehicles set a Guinness World Record as the world's fastest golf cart by reaching 103.65 miles per hour at Darlington Dragway in South Carolina.
Of course, with any record there's always the drive to do more. At a recent return to Darlington, the company blasted through its old record by hitting over 118 mph... with clubs strapped to the back, no less. Scroll down to check out the video of the full run from two angles. As a bonus, there's a another clip down there of one of the company's vehicles drag racing a Ford Mustang, and the cart sounds like a dentist's drill.
