Default How to make my Gator go faster????

I own a 2002 4x2 John Deere Gator and it's slower than all get out. My brother in law just bought a 2002 Trail Gator with the same engine, and it blows me out of the water. My tires are loaded down with anti-freeze for better traction in the winter time. I'm sure that has something to do with it, but is there anything else I can do to boost it's speed?

Thanks,
Jeff

There is one thing you can do. Get a tachometer and make sure the governor is set at 3600 rpm. Outside that, get the antifreeze out.

My first question would be how do you set the gov at 3600 rpms? You would have to change the weights in order to set a gov at a specific rpm. I would just remove the bolt that pinches the throttle arm to the gov rod.
