You might want to take a break. Enough people are complaining about your attitude and misinformation posts to make a case against you to the owners.
I'm not talking about just this thread.

And if you think you know more about golf cart repairs & upgrades than all of us then you have less of an education than I suspected.

Sergio & JohnnieB are two of the best cart technicians to ever grace the pages of a golf cart forum on a regular basis. They are here to simply help people, their background in electronics is far beyond what most of us can even comprehend on the subject.


Step back and take a break.

I looked at one place that sells FTZ products and they do have 1-2 ga. Power Lug 5/16" Stud Color Coded (pink HH) $1.53 plus they carry whole line.The only problem is when I clicked to check out red letters said "You must have at least $100. worth of products to continue with your checkout". The price is good but they're not selling just one and I don't blame them.
To those that want to make your own cable sets that might not seem to much but you factor in the cable and labor costs.Add boxing and shipping and the costs keep on going up and there isn't that much profit if you really think about it.

I reaaly like the debate and whats best for our carts. But, 7 pgs and 63 posts for making our own cables is pretty wild.
I went the del city way with lugs, slugs and welding cable and didnt regret the extra footage since i have use for the wire on other carts. I did have to buy smaller holes for the f&r switch but no big deal.

It may be cheaper in the long run to buy a set, but tooooo many of us on here are diyers and it seems well respected.
To each his own! However, if i was a business i would offer the best to eliminate the warranty work!

And i have noticed how some are very helpful to others and some are very critical, yet they need the help of the forum.
Cart on!

I have Scotty's cables on my PDS cart. Super nice!! If I were buying a set I would do it again.

I've made lots of cables myself for the drag cart. I use welding cable, Ebay lugs, regular heat shrink tubing, and a Harbor Freight crimper. Seems to work fine but I'm only passing 250 volts and 2000 amps through them so... Honestly, the drag cart is never subjected to the things that a regular cart is so corrosion is not a concern.

I value threads like this as long as it stays in control, it gets out the falsehoods, brings in the best and you can learn a lot from it. Even with my 25+ years of Industrial Electronics, Electrical design I still learn today, and I don't know much about electric golf cart as the few key members that supports this site, over time the experience rises to the top. What I do is so specialized I sometimes have to take a step back to the details that are required to make these carts as safe, reliable and fun as they are. Also we want to provide the most cost effective methods and I know most of the DIY'ers want to save a buck but at least we can point out the important things you can't squander on.

What I can tell you the I have great respect for these guys that on a daily basis helps others with true and solid information. I do give my thoughts and opinions & I do stand corrected frequently and I'm ok with that, I don't go into the research as deep as I initially did because I realize that each year cart the manufacturers change things up quite often, even though the basics do stay the same. I respond to those whom never get replies I know how it feels when you scream for help and don't get any input, I try to be as honest on my support and always hope the ones with more experience chimes in.

So hats off to discussions like these and the information provided and try not let things spiral out of control. Also appreciate the people that support these discussions to their best abilities. Please never take things I write to the offensive, I don't intend to make my thoughts on issues or how things done sound like the end all way of doing something, and can care less it I was wrong and was corrected, if we get the help to the ones needing that help then we succeeded in what this forum was designed for imo!
