Default I am trying to install motors in Losi starter box.

Where does little yellow wire that goes from motor to motor go red to red or red to black? I know these are pre wired from factory when you buy box but I got a used one that had all new parts but I have to assemble. Thanks for any help! There is a little red dot on motor connections should the wire go from red dot to red dot or red dot to the one with no dot? Thanks!

Yes, red to black ( or no dot side). You are wiring the motor in series to handle the 12-14 volts of your prefered battey, Pb/NiMH/NiCD/LIPO

Default Hey Thanks! I got it but have one more question.

I can get to work with my nimh 7.2 packs but I am trying to charge 12 volt box battery thru the post on outside with a 12v plug. Anyway I have been charging a couple hours but it still won't even turn over wheel but if I leave it plugged in the wheel spins very slow so I think the connection is good. Is it normal not to have enough power after 2-3 hours charging 12v battery that was completely dead? Starter box noob sorry. Thanks AGAIN!
