Don't worry. You did not become a superhero overnight. Sorry if we ruined a childhood dream, but we checked, and there are no radioactive spiders or reports of cosmic rays that could pull that off. Now, dry rot on plastic products can make you think you have the power of hulk in your hands, but that is not the case. Don't try to pick up any cars, maybe just a new E-Z-GO Forward and Reverse Handle. We carry this and many other parts just like it because we know how coaches usually get stored is not conducive to the long life of any product. You are not going to park the sports car on the street so the golf car can go in the garage.There is usually nothing wrong with the caddie when parts like a golf cart forward and reverse handle break under normal shifting conditions. It never hurts to give it a once over and make sure you are getting everything you need. Again, we are sorry your next call is not to the Daily Planet, but Buggies Unlimited is just as good.
