Well I rearranged my batteries (3) and shorten the cables. May not have made any difference but sure looks neater and got rid of 35" of cable and left myself plenty of room to pull caps and remove the hold down nuts. Will admit the cables could have been shorten some before I rearranged the batteries by at least a foot.

The picture is kinda dark but...
I am curious where the saved 35 inches actually came from.
Stock cable lengths for this cart is 5 pieces 14 inches each = 70 inches total. You are saying you saved 50% of that (35") ...... where? I only see one cable which looks 50% shorter, the rest look about the same old 14" or so?
Please post individual cable lengths. Maybe you had some way too long cables to begin with? IDK?

Scotty if I were making up cables for resale I would think that 14" Bat-Bat would be a safe bet but since I am custom fitting my cable I have the luxury of cutting to fit. Three batteries were turn from where they were when I bought the cart (don't know if they all come that way or not). Three banks of two. Sitting in the set the left rear, left center and right rear batteries were turned around. On the center set since the pos. & neg. post are next to one another now and on the same ends the connecting cable can be shortened to 8-9 inchs. That also put the + on the center left bat closer to the neg. on left front bat. and 12" works fine and the same with the right front bat. and the left center battery, there again you only save a couple of inches. Now after turning the right rear and left rear I only save an inch or two on each side but I ended up with the Pos on the right side and the neg on the left side turned toward the middle of the cart and saved about 6" on each side. All the saving was not on the Bat-Bat cables, some was came from the cables coming from the rear. I know!! That only adds up to about 25" of savings. The other was as I stated earlier unnecessary cable. So little resistance in the cable that none of this may matter at all. Just looks neater to me.

I've been following this thread, not a bad idea. The older I get I also think if it aint broke don't fix it. In my opinion I think the standard cable length's are just fine, I think if they are too short it could cause increased pressure/pull on the lug crimp/solder joint. I think the most important issue when its comes to cables are the size and the quality of the lug crimped solder connection.

I agree Steve it is probably overkill but the way I have mine cut and run there is no binding and plenty of clearance. I am kind of old school when it comes to wiring. If I rewire something I usually get ride of waste. When I first started playing with wiring we still used waxed lacing cord, no zip ties or plastic looms. Don't get me wrong I use lots of zip ties now but still kind of anal about neat wiring. And I am glad to see you say CRIMP AND SOLDER. I was taught to get the best connection you should tin the lugs and the wire, crimp, solder then a good heat shrink. Folks posting in great forums like this one should never be afraid to convey their ideas for others to see, but it is ultimately up to them to choose what is bet for them. they may not do thing the way i do but it could spark an idea that none of us have though of. Keep them coming.
