Default Will I be in trouble?

So as some of you know, I will be installing a 6" A-Arm lift with 22" tires in the near future. My cart is bone stock with speed code 4 (IQ system). My question is will I have a chance of burning something up, whether it be the solenoid, controller, motor, FR switch, etc. Would upgrading only the wires prevent things from frying? I live in a mildly hilly area (nothing too steep), and will have the capacity of 4 people when I'm all said and done (adding a rear seat too).

I think this is one area where the complexity of the Sepex system is a plus, the controller already has a "field map" for the motor and will not allow it to operate on a unsafe zone.

I would change the power cables due to the likelihood of operating at a higher current for longer periods of time.

Stock cables are 6 gauge correct? So you're thinking 4 would be better?

Yes. I am bone stock and have been since August and have not has any problems. I do plan on an Alltrax controller, PQ motor, and a 4ga or 2ga cable set in the near future
