Default EZ GO Cabling

There is a standard battery cable 6 gauge set for around $16, however if you want a 4 gauge set you normally see all electric cable for around $90. Is it worth buying 4 gauge and getting all cables? I have a TXTPDS and my cables keep burning off at the battery connection, I was told 4 gauge would eliminate this problem. any thoughts.

I would say yes, I am not an expert but mine caught on fire for that reason.
Now I am replacing batteries, controller, and wires

Not being a smart @$$ but my thoughts are that you have a connection issue more than a cable issue. Poor/loose connections cause high resistance and resistance equals heat.

There can be other factors causing this issue. Is this a stock setup PDS? Not lifted?

I believe the stock PDS comes with 4ga motor connections. I prefer the higher strand count welding cable for upgrading battery cables.

Do a search. Lots of posts on upgrading cables.
