    I have two venom batteries and I will give you my issues. Both of them the factory soldered connections came loose. I would charge and plug my battery in and the run and it would stop. Take a peak run and the stop. Loose wite on battery would make esc blink and then shut down. I replaced with traxxas females and no problem since. I had too use that stupid adapter to connect to traxxas esc and now we are good to go.

    Check the battery connection that's what happened to me.

    You want to use electrical solder (rosin core) for max current flow.

    First time I soldered new connectors was a disaster. Burned my hand and nearly tossed everything in garbage. I am just not good at soldering. Now I use needle nose pliers as my fingers. Learned my lesson.

    Fast forward to now and I have a passing grade. Make sure you solder to the wire side of insert and cut just strip 4mm. I was stripping too much wire. Rc's are really technical. I watched some YouTube vids and they made it look so easy. My iron is a Home Depot thing that wasn't cheap.

    Make sure you have enough female connectors. My first two tries were no good. 3try was a charm....10 th soldering job was no sweat. Good luck.
