Hi have a traxxas e revo I bought a few years ago. I have a problem with it. When I plug in my batteries to the car, a pretty big spark appears between the connectors! I’m running brand new traxxas id 5000mah 11.1V 3-cell 25C lipo batteries. The connectors almost solders themself to each other so the are broken now! I’m wondering if someone could help me figure out what the problem is? I’m a rookie when it comes to RC stuff!
Best regards!

The pins in the connector melted, that’s how big of a spark it was 😅
