An easy solution to this problem is to place the battery in water, let the water boil, and power your buggy via steam power.

I think this is because the springs in the case can't handle the current from the batteries and that is converted to thermal energy and everything is melting, although I am not really sure. I do know that this is not a result of the typical short-circuiting error. Can anyone please give me a solution to this issue, and any possible battery cases/holders that would work?



Thanks!
I have the same problem!!! my springs on one side get all burnt out. What you do is put squares of foil on the burnt springs then it works perfect. If it doesnt work for you tell me there are other solutions

Make sure the springs are clean and corrosion free, and try a different battery holder. Otherwise, if things are melting or catching on fire, something is wrong. Dont wait for an ES to dq you before you choose a safer option.
