Chris, it's a fair point as the weight of the big batteries could well be what pushed the load factor on the wiring to literally melting point. They were an experiment after the regular batteries just didn't last and if I could abandon them I probably will. It could be that in the short run scenario such as the arena displays at Tankfest etc. I don't run the tank under constant load to get a critical heat build-up so it wasn't until an extended run that the draw from the motors caused the failure.
Hmmm, still wish I knew what the root cause of this is, so frustrating...
