Your going to need 50 amps here as it sounds like a DEAD short across the battery.

Hope I'm wrong  ;D

Hi Guys.
           took closer look at drawing, it appears  that one wire from batt cables splits into two and fastens to  servo plate via two nuts and bolts.
Misunderstood instructions somehow sorry.On this point instructions for speed controller don't show this wire on batt connections  :embarrassed: :embarrassed:,is it an earth of sorts ? do i need it?should i use the same wire as for light system. It's my first attempt .( will probably name it  mv plastic padding )

Could you take a step backwards, what is it you are trying to connect.

Which thread is the diagram in?  Knowing which diagram would make providing an answer much easier.
