What did FSIP charge you to upgrade your stock controller to 400 amps?

Maybe this? This was my before and after:

Man, I laugh at what I had originally! Surprised I didn't have a meltdown on the obviously overheated connection lower left, last pic...

what is the idea of putting replacing the copper bars, and upgrading to 2ga wire? less resistance, therefore more speed?

On a series cart - Heavy wires improve Torque - High amp controller coupled with those wires gives even more torque and maybe a tiny bit more speed.

Basically, only a new motor (or hi-speed gears) produces increased speed on a series cart. But its important to note that hi-speed gears need good torque too, to be a viable option when going up hills.

have you tried with more than 2 people and still 30MPH?. I 'm stuck on whether i should get the DDmotorsystems.com recommended ES-81-41 or the D392 ? We are in Florida ans use on flat 25MPH roads. I have a 36V CC with 400AMP AXE 4844 r8 and D395 current motor.
I currently top 15mph with 22 inch all terrain tires with 1 person. Do you think that copper on FNR switch was a key factor in you speed increase, never saw that done before.

Also do you have 36v or 48v batteries
With the D392?
