Default 4 gauge Cable Set for converted Precedent

Hey guys,

So long story short, I'm in the process of converting the 12V to 8V and while trying to remove the cables off the motor the stud spun to the point where its free spinning now..

Anyway, I'm thinking about just ordering The Bandit from PQ (hopefully they have a core, Hawaii shipping is ridiculous) along with their 500amp controller...

Does anyone know where I can get a 4 gauge cable set that would work with the 12V to 8V conversion as far as correct cable lengths?

Sorry to hear that you learned like many of us that you need ( TWO wrenches to hold stud lock nut while using other for loosening the cable lock nut ) its always a expensive lesson but never forgotten?
I always say check with forum sponsors FIRST they keep this forum available for anyone needing it.

yeah thats the thing I used a wrench and a socket.. the wrench didnt move but the nut some how grabbed the nut and started to spin the stud and I didn't know..stud was also bent too.. probably from the last owner...

Scotty I'll give you a shout when the time comes.. what sizes do you need to make the cables?

I don't know what kind of cable you got for .30 a foot but, the 400+ strand premium welding cable with neoprene jacket costs me 5 Xs that in 4g . Maybe the cashier made a mistake ?
