If the engine gets hot enough to melt that battery wire then he's got bigger problems than a shorted lipo! I have mine wired that way and never had a problem.

This is how I wired up my radio tray last year. I eventually cut all wires down and made it cleaner.

My LHS has all the connectors and a crimping tool to shorten the wires and have a "factory" look and function. I bought these items years ago..The crimper was a little pricey, but worth every penny. When other guys see it, they end up borrowing it and doing the same mod.

Here's the one I have. The video Bump posted looks like a more user friendly tool. The results are the same. Way better than splicing the wires...my.02
