and is very responsive to steering input...

Thank you sir!

Wow Phil you are quick and on it...way to go guy!

In my 'hood there are numerous loops with steep hills and sharp tight turns.

My Sirius will respond swiftly to steering input...and ...if I'm going a bit to fast
through these types of turns could in very careless unwise judgement...a flip
could very well occur...the Sirius seems to be of a high center of gravity kind of
cart...

Phil..feedback time please sir!

steering feels squirrelly, but I am sure its because of coil over springs in the front suspension, a bit of body roll and front brakes. I am sure if you drive it on a regular basis you will become accustomed to it. just as a new car or truck.

I get to drive many carts over the course of a few months, I have driven some expensive ones like Garia's, 8-10 passenger buses, some pretty *** old that barely held together and everything in between.

I live in a town with 100+ miles of cart paths and there are 17,000+ registered golf carts. we are connected to surrounding towns that also have cart paths. young or in-experience drivers, fast carts, sharp/tight/blind turns keeps us fixing carts. I have seen plenty of wrecked and rolled carts, sadly people get hurt and sometimes seriously injured. Believe me, you can flip over just about any cart out there, without much effort and poor judgment.

New 2021 Ev LSV lifted and love it, steering is tight and ride is comfortable. Only issues with it so far is the headlights are not bright at all, highs are non existent and the console display is super bright!

Congrats on your new cart...

I had a 2019 Sirius...head lights are visible to those coming at you but nothing
at all on the road in front of you..if by highs you mean bright lights yes...
the Sirius has bright lights just actuate the "smart stick" and you will see the blue headlight icon...your headlight are adjustable...but a pain to adjust...
my dealer did adjust...but barely made a difference on illuminating the road
in front..

Big caveat here do not rely on that bar soc gauge...regardless of what Star
or dealer says....it is not accurate..

Get 1 of these and install it....

I noticed you have but 9 miles or so on your cart...and while your battery soc
still has 2 green bars...more than likely you dealer did not fully recharge
your carts batteries...


Charge them as soon as possible...what battery brand and how many in your pack?

Thanks for the reply... sorry I didn't see it earlier. I have about 150 miles on it now and it's been great. The only issue I had since this post and probably right after was the turn signal. I used it once and I guess it got caught, when I turned the wheel it clicked really bad all the time. The dealer fixed it right away though.

Currently, I'm trying to install a light bar, its mounted and looks great, I did find 18v across two batteries, but is this the best way to do this? Or is there a power reducer somewhere? Like where the JBL speakers plug into?

Thanks!
