    Either you have to electrical problems ir shorts in the wire. Or your battery is dead. Are you sure they are wired correctly? Positive positive ect.
    Alternatively your motor connectors could be off. Check that. Uhhh. Thats Probably it.

    His fuse may be blown, if it has a fuss that is.

    It should work so it could be one of these problems

    : Short in gun wiring / connector
    : Battery is dead
    : fuse is blown
    : Motor wires arn't connected

    However I suggest wiring the battery to deans regardless.

    Your fuse probably blew or the GB is locked.

    It doesnt have a fuse so it must be the GB and when I go to shoot it just clicks as if there is no battery

    That sounds like a short. Take the motor out and see if it spins. If it does, the GB is locked, if it doesn't, your either your motor shorted or your wiring has some problems.

    Are you sure none of the wires have gotten in an awkward position in the grip and is clamping the motor? You should replace all your connectors with deans connectors by the way.

    He means the battery, that's why he said to replace ALL the connectors.

    Exactly, if you use a Tamiya to Deans adapter, that removes the point of having a Deans connector on your gun.
