4 guage cables are only going to help if you "need" it. Wimpy stock carts don't need 4 guage so don't expect much of a torque gain, carts with at least a 400 amp controllers need 4 guage. (Yes, even a higher voltage.) Carts with larger tires need 4 guage. In the end its up to you whether you want to drop the cash for the upgrade. It's money well spent. Trust me, thousands of people have upgraded there cables to 4 guage. I have never heard anyone complain they didn't see any gains....no matter what the math said.

while you have your batterys out you might want to open the v-glide and blow out any dust,check and make sure the wiper arm sits flush on copper pads, also fully press gas pedal to floor and check ailament of wiper arm to the last copper contact. Mine was only on about 1/2 the last contact. easy to adjust with linkage from pedal, just pull retaining clip back and pull linkage off and give it a spin or 2

Hey oxfordlawn,

Can you post all the details of how you make your 4 gauge wires, where you get the cables, what type, and how you make the attachments on the ends?

I want to upgrade my wires as well and still have a lot of questions on getting this done based on all the discussion in this thread.

Thanks for the help.

Im waiting for some advice on what terminal ends to use at my VGlide switch. They are very narrow with what seems to be a 1/4" hole , and I cant seem to find lug ends that are narrow enough to fit inbetween the mounting fins of the Vglide switch. The cable I will order off Ebay as I found a good store that sells 20' red and 20' black for $55 and free shipping. Its just the lug ends I need help with for now. I will be using a propane torch to solder them on with shrink wrap at each terminal. I have done this before for cars and it works great.

Is the cable that you're ordering pretty resistant to the abuse of the batteries? Sorry for all the questions, it sure would be nice if there was a place to purchase a 4 gauge kit for the 36V, but I have had no luck finding any.

I had read in a different thread on this forum that member "roady89" would make up a really nice set, I have PM'd him but have not gotten any response as of yet. I dont know if he needs your measurements or if he has measurements by now and could just make up a set....I would think he would have measurements since there are only a few variations. If I hear I will keep ya posted. Maybe he wil catch this post also...who knows
