Fieroflyer hit it right on the head. I had the exact issues he described above and it didn't start to happen until a few weeks later when things have time to corrode just that little bit. The hotter the day was the more noticeable the problem was, although my starter was old it didn't start to go into failure until i did the battery relocation, and then about Three weeks later the above problems started. Changing the starter helped a bit but i only lessened the frequency slightly. I went to 2 gauge cable and dual grounds one to the front chassis and one to the block not even a hint of a problem now. The heat issue is not with the cable getting hot from cranking but when the engine is the increased load on the starter means it needs to draw more current and with too small of a cable your boned until the car cools off enough. Just trying to help you avoid headaches down the road pun intended.
I understand this...
Technically, if a 4g can start a car in 20 below weather with no issues whatsoever, in a car that is driven on salt, corrosion and a VERY tight engine are both factors... Worse than a hot engine and a weak starter.
My point is, with the math, there is plenty of load capability to start a car.
Also, if you are cranking and cranking and cranking your car trying to get it to start, you have other issues you need to address.
I simply want to provide a good product for the community. If everyone wants 2g, then I can do it. But it won't be for under 125.
So, again, if you need 4g power cable for an amplifier or whatnot, get ahold of me. I can't afford to sit on 500 bucks worth of supplies.
