Default battery rewiring

Hey guys thinking about rewiring my cart its a 2010 club car precedent the current wires are a bit ratty and just want to be sure i get the best preformance out of my cart the cart is standard.

The wire i can get my hands on is 2 guage and nice and flexable i just have a few questions.

Is it better to solder or crimp the lugs on?
is it worth just doing the battery connections or should i do the ones to the motor and controller as well?

thanks very much for youe help

Just to add one more thing but this is more of a general question.

Why other than the fact its easy to bend is it better to use high strand count cable for a golf cart than a cable with only 20 strands???

if your going to replace the wires then replace all of them.

I soldered mine one on and then shrink tubed them. that is going to come down to personal choice to solder or crimp.

As far as strand count for all I read it is better to have a higher count. that gets into the debate on how the electrons flow though or on the surface of the strands themselves

Crimp and then solder. Use heat shrink tubing on all connections.
