New BBSHD - XT90s Question

Post by Nightstone » May 07 2016 8:42pm

My bike should be ready to plug in sometime tomorrow. I ordered some XT-90 s Connectors from amazon on Prime. They came today. Guess what... Package says anti spark but connectors do not have caps in them. Just a separate cover that I could do the same thing with epoxy or hot glue. Anyways these are no different that the XT 90's I already own... Grrrrr

So how bad will the spark be on 3 4s 16000 bats in series? Any chance of causing damage to the BBSHD controller? I know from past experience that the battery will short out ( Internal tab separates ) before the controller on my RC equipment takes a hit.

Thanks NS...

Answering my own question... Plugged in this morning at 3 fully charged 4s 16000mah batteries. 50.6v. NO SPARK. None.

BBS02 motors dont spark either. Makes wiring so much more easier. My infineon controller however... Sparks like a bitch.
