I saw your post, didn’t want to post unsolicited advice but it was part of my motivation for getting this up today.

That is 4/0, 0000, 4 aught welder lead. It’s 1.78 times the diameter of the #2 you were using, 3.2 times the cross sectional area and most important, less than 1/3 the resistance per foot.

I would also suggest this style terminals on the battery post ends, soldered not crimped.

I would never recommend those type terminal ends. They always work themselves loose!

They were improperly installed. Iíve always had to spread the gap on mine to get them off. I did have to rescue my daughter-in-law when one of hers came loose.

You have to be careful to use pos on pos and neg on neg, the battery posts are different sizes.

Those automotive lugs would not work on any of the golf cart bats I have had in the past or present as the golf cart bats have bolt type terminal so lugs need to be held in place with a nut. on terminal, I believe 3/8".
