Default Where to get better battery cables

I was cleaning my batteries yesterday and notice a few of the connectors were starting to get eaten up by the corrosion. One looks like it is missing half of its size. Where do I get new cables of larger guage? Do I replace the cables between the batteries only or do I replace the cables to the controller as well?

I really don't want to make my own.

That other buggie site sells them, but why not make your own. Cheaper and you can route the wires where you want them. The best prices to make your own that I have found was weldingsupply.com. They have a good price on the crimper tool (hammer crimper) too.

I made my own cables for 48 conversion with fittings and buying crimping tool for less than $100 and have tool and cable left over for future needs.

Difference in PDS and others is number of cables. If you make your own, just pull one off and make an identical, and then progress to the next one.

Currently these high performance cable kits are only available for the 36 volt Medalist and TXT Model E-Z-GO Golf Carts and the 48 volt DS Model Club Car Golf Carts, more kits will follow. If you need a 4 gauge cable kit in the meanwhile, please call us at 1-800-328-1953 with the measurements of all the wires needed and we will custom make this kit for you.

well, I may try to make my own with those solder on cables ends. I'll start looking for the supplies.

Thanks for you help.
