Either or...

I swapped the Fs at the controller, had to drill out a couple wheel studs and got new tires on it, and took the cart for the first test ride. It's topping out at about 14-15 mph and if I put the throttle all the way down, it completely falls on its face and stops. I think I smelled a burnt rubber smell as well so I limped it back home. The batteries are dated Dec 2018, so I'm assuming they need to be changed. Would they cause that throttle issue, and limit the cart to maxing out at 15 mph?

I let the batteries charge all day and they got up to 51.2. Each battery read 8.5 or 8.4 volts individually. With the rear end on jack stands, and putting the pedal to the floor, each battery reads about 7.8 or 7.9 under load. After testing each under load, they read about 8.3 volts each and the pack is at 50.4. After a ride around 2 blocks, I'm down to 49.7 and the controller is blinking low battery voltage. I'm still getting a burning smell and it won't let me put the pedal down quickly without it stalling. I'm leaning heavily towards new batteries.

Update: I installed new batteries and it made a world of difference. This cart runs about 25 mph now. I'm still getting the burning smell and realized it's the driver front brake caliper sticking. When I let go of the wheel, the cart immediately pulls left. Took the caliper apart and cleaned and greased everything and it's acting the same. Is it worth flushing the brake fluid and messing with the master cylinder, or most likely need to replace the caliper assembly?

From experience, I'd just replace it. You're still going to want to flush the fluid though as the old fluid is probably the original and well due to be replaced.
