That was interesting.

Big lead terminals do not belong on a golf cart. Take it from guys who have experience in the trade.

Maybe I missed i but I did not see where you were head engineer at club car on your resume, oh well.

Anyway I could say I was engineer at John Deer but wtf do I know about a weed eater.

How come it is 99% of these so called "injuneers" get on here claiming to be gods gift to golf carts? They're always pissing someone off cause they think they are smarter than everyone else. Every single friggin time man I swear. They ALWAYS have to make sure everyone knows they are an injuneer......

(P.S. I spelled it wrong intentionally. )

LMAO!!! Wish ya'll could have seen the sh!t eatin grin on my face reading this!!! With that being said not here too bash anyone but my brother is a electrician and has done some big expantions in texas on oil refineries... He has been foremen, superintendent, and head over qc... All different jobs ofcourse, so he had to deal with dc drives so too speak but don't know the first thing bout dc systems at all.... lol he can't even wire a car stereo up, but when it comes too AC voltage he can make me look like a dumb a$$.... Vise versa! With that being said I have always heard him complain about how engineers are the biggest problem when it comes to cost efficiency due too not working in the field and there plans constantly have too be altered redrawn and approved.... He said its a billion dollar problem and I see it too in my field of work Thank you... drive thru!!

Been reading this thread and you were a little hard on this poster. I do not know the answer to this but there are at least two things an engineer must do when designing a product, one is function and the second is COST look at club car now not installing wiring for lights this costs them 20.00 but when you make 100,000 carts per year it adds up. the terminals he posted are at least 3 time more costly than crimp terminals, they do have more area to make contact and require much more labor to make up, soldering and such. So to say they are not better is a stretch based on your experience when not all the facts are presented.
Again I have no Idea what is better or what is overkill and where do you find batteries at a reasonable cost when you limit yourself to specific terminals. But you also cannot look at an end result and say what the CLUB CAR ENGINEER was thinking or the constraints that were put on him during design.

Things CLUB CAR ENGINEERS designed and are upgraded daily

1 club car designed using 250 amp controllers
2 club car designed using # 4 battery wiring
3 club car designed using an OBC (bet they make money on these)
4 club car designed using a GE piece of crap motor
5 someone please add to this list

are there better things to replace the above items and have you done any of them.
yes i use 5/16 terminals they work just fine for me.

Whats your point? Club car designs carts for golf and they do just fine on a golf course. It is private owners upgrading and upgraded carts would be a major safety problem on a public golf course.

They are better....for automotive applications which is what they were designed for. They don't fare so well on an electric golf cart battery. Don't believe us?? (don't think anyone cares really) Just try it yourself. Come back in a year and tell us what you think about them with solid scientific evidence. Most people don't come back cause they find out they were wrong.
