The method to remove or adjust a governor on a club car varies depending on the type of governor the car has. It is dangerous to disable a governor completely on a club car because there is a strong chance of damage to the engine. A safer method to gain speed in a club car is simply to adjust the governor's settings. There is still a risk of damage to the engine by this method, however, as the governor is put in place by the club car manufacturer to keep the car from going over the manufacturer's recommended speed.
