Not sure if I am going to be able to solder 2/4awg to my motor so researching other options like adding more 8 awg wires and I came across this calculator. I might try adding two more more 8awg wires and it will be the equivalent of running 3awg.

Putting this here so I can find it again. :idea:

Quick update:
Home made crimper and 4ga wire installed on the motor: I drilled the cover and added a grommet so she is still sealed.

Now that Jetski season is coming to an end (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o4kbAhwFwo) I am starting back up on this project. Picked up the rest of my connectors and dusted the soldering gun off.

Started on the battery wire! Using 300amp 1/0GA welding connectors. (Very much overkill, but cheaper then Anderson)

First time configuring a kelly KDS48400. Any advice is most welcome!

Anyone know if the foot throttle is 0-5 or 1-4v?

do you have link for these "Using 300amp 1/0GA welding connectors"
I will build 6p usin 8awg wires, so was thinking of crimping one pack positive and another negative together.
because anderson 350 is too bulky, but this looks promising and can keep up my average 200A and peak 650A :)

The welding connectors (DINSE) are good for the price, I use them in conjunction with the panel sockets for my positive and negative ouputs of my battery box.
