Default Installed Scotty B's Digital Meter , How much Drop is too Much ?

Ordered 2 ScottyB's Meters with stainless plate , Scotty shipped same day had meters in only two. Installed using existing wires behind dash as noted by others for the" Always on option ",

Great product - very clean install .

2009 CCP with 2011 6-8volt power drive batteries , after full charge overnight with Power drive 3 - pack shows 50.6 on dash meter , during full acceleration (pedal max) on relative flat ground - pack drops to between 43 - 44 on dash meter .

Any thoughts as this seems like quite a drop .
Thanks

4-5 volt drop is about normal for my CCP.

I like to see a little less. 6-7 volts is a good drop. Okay if big tires steep hill or heavy load applied...... but if that's straight flat take off you might have one or more batteries that are a little weak in my experience.

Thanks Scotty for the response , Fast shipping and quality meter ,

I have the EMP lightning motor and stock controller . Would I benefit from your 2 gauge cables and HD solenoid package , the guy at EMP stated that the motor was designed for stock controller however Alltrax would work on Non "Turbo" mode , I have been researching this for a while and many different takes. Thinking about starting over

For what it's worth, the other day after a long day of riding around, I was going up my neighbors short but very steep driveway, and the cart got down around 36v while floored going up the hill.
The batts are 2010 Trojan T-875s, always maintained, never had a problem.
