Ayuh,... If it could be done, Yes...

But I doubt each will fit where the other was....

Maybe if the shafts were the sam size.

May be some components that may not handle the extra stress.

It would go faster but you may have to push-start it and jump on. Otherwise it would likely burn the belt before it could gain any momentum.

"I am wanting to just make it like go 15 or 20 thats it just to get me around my small town". UH--OH! ! Here we go again. First: What state do you live in? From someone (ME) who has been fighting the State of Georgia as to the interpretations of it's own "Low Speed Vehicles", in this case golf carts, you should check 1) your local municipalities, 2) your State's laws on the use of a riding mower on public roads, streets, thoroughfares. From what I have learned about my State's Low Speed Vehicles: You'd be in trouble with the man for sure riding a "lawnmower" on public streets, etc.
