If this is amplifier wire do not use.
Welders cable is for use with prolonged power use, Heat , oil and acid resistant coating.
If you think what U have will hold up try is in a easy to get to location like batteries
and see what happens.
Avoid any controllers for IQ or Precedent or that mention Regen breaking.

Since you have to buy several parts at 1 time , controller, PB6 , Heavy F/R, Heavy Solenoid.
Go to site sponsors and find a couple whom offer all you need and work out a package deal.
Site sponsors guarantee what they sell, (cant afford issues Here), several also offer discounts
to members.

PS the other thing I did not mention is the higher the strand count the better( more flexible and less pressure on connectors

THHN wire does not have a high enough strand count. Since electricity flows on the outside of the wires you want the highest number of strands in your wire. Welding cable is the perfect wire for golf cart applications. Remember the high amperage these wires are carrying. Much more flexible and less resistance too.

The discussion about the electricity flowing on the outside of the wires is only a consideration
in non-dc application , like signal .

Just as much DC current will flow through a solid #4 cable as a stranded #4 cable

Thank you gmorrison. I stand corrected. The information I received about the electricity flowing on the outside of the wire was from a master electrician, but that doesn't mean he was right. That is why this forum is so great, so we can learn from the experts like gmorrison!!!

He is correct for high speed applications , 60 Hz (house hold current) it is true but is negligible.

It is not often I get to espouse what little I know so I generally come off as a A55

what about compact conductor? It has smaller strands but more of them to make the circular mill area of the required conductor? I know I know try it and let everyone how it works out! but I hate being the first! Some days your the dog but most days i am the fire hydrant!lol
