Default Losi 8ight RTR Starter box Help!!!

I bought the losi 8ight starter box and i have the losi 2200mah lipo battery for it. My question is, what are those big round plugs on each end of the neg and pos wires for? Should i cut it off? Here i have some pics.

It looks like those wires came off the motor. Is there a plus and minus wire going to the motor? If not the motor won't spin.

Those need to be attached to the motor. I dont see any power going to the motor. The red after the switch and the black direct from the battery. It wont work like that. Where did you get this box from?

Default Junk

Losi has a great rtr, but the shock towers and the starter box is junk, other than that it's ok for a losi....

Hi Guys,

I have exactly the same problem with the new losi starter box 2.0. One of the two coils is disconnected by bad soldering, the one connects to the red wire (positive) . Can you guys post me a pictures of the correct connections? Many thanks.
