as you can see, I jury rigged the charger cord so I could get the batts charged up, need to shorten the cable on the rear batt left side

Also learned today that your chargers output should be about 10% of your batterys AH rating, have never heard that before.

I also measured the total battery cable length to be just about 25 feet, so not bad considering

That's freaking awesome too hear!! I was at the deer woods yesterday hanging another stand and putting up 2 blinds, then went to the spot we camp at, seeing what we needed to do too get that spot ready for my brothers camper.Theres a few stumps that we need to get out... Didn't know how we was gonna get it done but now I will just call Scott's Stump Removal Service! I'm thinking about looking too jumping up too 60volts if that's even possible. You rite bout that video cause that cart looks and souds like its on its last leg

That cart's wicked with that rear end setup! Can you take off in high, or do you have to shift, and is the rear end locked full time or is it limited slip? I'm thinking I may have to save up for one of these if for a future build, it definitely looks cool!

yes you can take off in high or low
no the rear is limited slip, until you pull a cable and manually lock it

I had another thought and it turned into a question lol. Can it be installed without a lift? From the pics earlier on showing the rear end and motor I can't tell...

On a stock cart the rear axle springs are underneath the axle, when you do a lift, you move the springs on top of the axle.

this rear will give you about 6.5 " lift, so if you don't already have a lift, your rear will be done after install as it already has axle perches welded to the tubes.

Also notice the motor is on the drivers side, versus the passenger side on a stock cart, so you don't want any limiting factors in your controller or wiring harness that limits reverse speed

Thanks for the info! Reverse is definitely a low gear only operation on your cart I'll bet! I hit full speed (about 26 MPH) ONE time in reverse on my cart and then hooked half speed back up, I NEVER wanna do that again. The way a cart handles in reverse at high speed, especially since I was on a gravel road, is a SCARY feeling.

been a few months running around, everything is flawless, the two speed rear is just great, torque is off the scale, and top speed around 31 MPH, very happy with the results. I am also getting about 30 miles on a full charge of mixed driving, that's taking the pack down to the 50% range, obviously could go more, but battery life is more important, so at half full, I PLUG IN.
