    AND lastly. Fwiw, true to size SAE 1/0 cable is rated for 300a. Knu wire is oversized and hence, rated for 375a, it is genuinely 2/0 cable I believe. And I'm sure the monster cable is a little oversized as well, so it is rated for at LEAST 300a. Just know, with any quality 1/0 OFC cable, you're getting a minimum of 300a carrying capacity.
    It's a lil stiff, but a very far cry from being unmanageable. I'll have no problem running it. Glad to hear that the 2/0 solder lugs will fit. Imma grab some from @RAM_Designs ; if he still has them.

    Damn right it is man, considering that I just bought 40 feet of Knu KCA for $88 shipped and this Moster wire shyts all over that KCA in every aspect, minus flexibility, but this Monster isn't that bad to work with at all! and I am a huge fan of the outside jacket on the Monster vs. most other brands, seems very robust and resistant to corrosion/heat/accidental cutting.


    good pic of knu kca and monster ofc.
