We have a 48 volt DS cart with a 350 amp curtis controller set at speed 4 and an advanced motor 3294/GGO-4001 and 14" tires. We're burned terminal off of 2 motors. We use #4 wire and have all of the terminals clean yet the controller and motor are still getting hot . Do you know what is causing this

Reads like you have a short. I would imagine it doesn't do it while connecting everything. So while you are driving one or two of the feeds to the motor are touching the frame.
OR The connections are loose and allowing arcing at the stud.
Post some pics of the battery compartment and controller area and see if one us can see something.

The wire aren't touching anything. I have to drive it for 10 minutes for it to get hot and I've sanded all of the ring terminals and everything is tight Could it be I need a different motor

Bernie what is the serial number for your cart? Also recheck your part number for your motor. A google search for your motor 3294/GGO-4001 doesn't show up anything.

Are ALL of your cables 4 gauge? If you don't change all of them to 4 gauge it doesn't do you any good to upgrade.

3294/GGO-4001 is the number on the advanced motor. As far as all of the wires being # 4 I'll have to check that

Power runs through every power cable when you drive the vehicle. They must ALL be changed in order to keep the heat down. This may be your issue.

I know your tires are not 14" because stock golf cart tires are 18". Likely you are confusing rim size with tire size. What's important to know is are the tires significantly shorter or taller than stock, does the cart have a lift kit? This will increase amp draw. Is the motor the advanced High Torque model?

I think what Scotty is getting at is... Read the numbers on your tires
Mine say 25x10.5x12

25 = tire height
10.5 = tire width
12 = rim size

The tire height is a crucial part of electric carts and they're performance!
