Default Upgrading Controller What Else to Upgrade

I just recently bought a 97 EZGO TXT with a lift and a speed motor. It needed a new controller and went up to the Alltrax AXE 4855. After getting this mounted and getting the new sulinoid mounted onto it, I was wondering what wires I should be looking to replace on the cart.

It is currently a 36V but when I replace the batteries, I am considering going up to a 48V. The sulinoid is both 36 and 48, so I should be good there, but I read a lot about replacing the wires with heavier gauge.

Can someone let me know what wires I should be looking to upgrade? There are a lot of wires, and for someone new to this, I am a little overwhelmed with what wires I should be looking to replace so they don't get too hot.

Thank You

Yours is a series cart. The system has 13 high amperage cables. The amperage to the motor goes through all the cables and the F&R. All of the cables need to be upgraded and the F&R switch.

Wires, like Scotty said. (deleted bad info)

I just finished installing my battery interconnects - now my whole system is 2ga (I had 4ga previously but stock motor wires)..

Eflyguy, he has a series motor, so he has 4 cables going back to the motor.

To the OP, since you are considering going to 48v, get one of scottyb's 2ga cable sets for 48v, they are a tad longer and you will be set once you upgrade. It's exactly what I did. I am still at 36v, but when it is time, I sm already set up.

ScottyB: was looking at your site and found Kit #2, 2 gauge. Will that be everything I need?

Thanks
