For me, the cost differential between 400 and 500 amp made the 500 a no brainer. Same with 2 vs. 4 AWG, though I made my own.

500 is about the point where, if you haven't already installed 4 AWG, you'd want 2. Check the price of 400 vs. 500 amps. I'm not sure which models have a fan, but I seem to recall several folks comparing a 400 + fan vs. 500, which includes the fan. Again, not sure this applies to series.

Good luck and keep us posted. However, if you feel like you have learned something here and it is a worthwhile place to visit year after year, you will get only the best advise, from literally thousands (TENS OF THOUSAND?) of hours experience. If you like the board, support the Site Sponsors. I've found their prices to be quite competitive, AND you'll get a lifetime of support here.

I'm the one who told you the solenoid specs. 100 continuous is adequate for me, as I have an ammeter/shunt and have confirmed this. You mileage may vary.

Ok guys so I got my new alltrax 48500 in today from Scotty B. Thanks Scotty for great customer service and super fast shipping!! Iím installing it right now but I hsve run into a snag!! Per alltrax instructions itís telling me to connect my M- to my A2. Well as my cart is sitting and have the factory cable that come off of it... itís M- to A1. Thatís how it is right now and what is on the factory cable that I took off few weeks ago!! Can anyone explain to me why itís different. Is it a typo or does the wires need to be changed according to alltrax?

I don't know what you're looking at, as my series is dated, but there are more than one way to wire a series, and ALL are perfectly acceptable. Don't mix and match, but pick one and follow it.

If you are using a wiring diagram from ScottyB, DO THAT, so if you run into issues, you'll at least be talking off the same baseline.

I take it you are installing a SR48500.

If so use the attached schematic from Alltrax. (Controller M- connects to motor A1)

I've not seen an Alltrax schematic showing M- connected to A2, can you post a picture of it?

Thanks for the quick response. My alltrax diagram that came with the controller is saying use M- to A2. My cart was wired as it is still on the wire in my hand as I’m typing this was label M-to A1. That was the factory cable that came off the cart. It was working like that so just wanted to make sure it wasn’t a wireing typo. That diagram Johnny b sent is exact one I have.

Ok so I got it out and run it for about 20 mins pretty hard. Only thing that is heating up is cables and F/R switch. Took it up a hill and throw and small dichroic nothing muddy but just trying to see if it would kick out. It kept pulling. Speed is the same and I did gain some torque. So all and all I’m satisfied with it but I think I will have to upgrade wires and switch sometime in the future
