Also not noted is making sure the box is setup correctly for your vehicle.

The wheel should engage prior to hitting your flywheel. It should also cleanly hit the flywheel and be adjusted not to bind against the chassis or anything else.

What happens normally is the box being setup incorrectly, the circuit being open with the motors trying to draw current but being on a bind.

The small brass pieces are meant to fry vs shorting out the motors. This can also lead to premature wear on the lipos and worse a short and fire.

Again I see this on boxes where the wheel is being bound up. These are torque boxes that will spin most engines easily in most cases. If not then

Take a look at all options especially since it is three.

If that is fine. Make sure there is no open wire or other that is causing a short situation.
