Default Cable Upgrade - 2000 TXT Series 36v

I have a 2000 TXT Series 36v with a 5" lift and 22" tires. Everything else on the cart is stock. I recently had a battery terminal melt due to corrosion on the lug so I need to replace the cables. I am going to replace all the cables and was looking at upgrading to the 4 AWG but I found 2 AWG for the same price. Would it be worth getting the 2 AWG? Will the 2 AWG be difficult to install into the stock controller enclosure? If anyone has any pictures of the controller with 2 AWG that would be helpful.

If there is no difference in price I would go with the 2 gauge. I had similar issues with 4 guage and rewired my entire cart with 2/0 gauge. It was overkill but I was able to get the wire and lugs free. I noticed a torque improvement and the wires are much cooler, never get too hot to touch even after a long run. I had to buy some longer bolts for the controller due to the lug thickness but it was not a big problem. I have a 91 though so I am not sure how much room you have to work with on yours?

it is not necessarly the size of the wire.. It is the strand count. If the 4ga has a higher strand count than the 2ga than the 4 ga will be better.

Running 2ga in your controller cover will be tough.. It hard enough to install EZGO 4ga kit and keep all the wies tight and the cover bolted tight.
