Default Question about upgrading to 2 gauge wires

I'm about to start replacing the stock wires with new 2 gauge wires on my 01 CC DS.

Can anybody tell me how they got around the wire that passes through, what I think is the computer board under the seat? The hole looks too small for a thicker wire to fit.

the hole is to small you need a set of cables that has a OBC (on board computer) pass through

Replace all the cables. When the gas pedal calls for amperage to the motor that amperage goes through ALL the cables not just some of them. I saw partial cable kits for sale?

I have complete the upgrade #2 cables and heavy duty solenoid,,, I used Scotty B's products.
I am very pleased that I took this route even though I could have built my own.
The peace of mind and tech help is worth the price. IMO

I will definitely be buying a bunch of stuff from Scotty B, but unfortunately I already bought the wire set from golfcartcatalog.com.
However, as I think about it, it probably didn't come with two smaller cables (one for each side of the OBC bolt). So what should I do now? Can I have one of my lines cut and have new ends put on? I don't have the ability to do it myself.

Buy the pass thru from Scotty and then get the short cable also, just coil the long cable and attach it to the pass thru bolt on battery side,...

The pass through is a 5/16's piece of all thread rod, available at any hardware store.

That is correct as I have posted the diagram many times.
Study it and start using it. Without all the amperage going through the obc the on board computer cannot function as designed.
We do not sell the obc stud, you can very simply make your own using this diagram attached.
