Hey guys, was just shimming my KA VSS Vintorez, and it shot perfectly well for 5 test fires on a 9.6v nimh and then for the 6th shot nothing happened. The 9.6v was super hot so I let that cool down and then tried my 7.4v lipo and pulled the trigger 3 times with no responses and then the tamiya connectors started smoking and then melted off each other. Anyone know what just happened and if there is a way to fix this? Much appreciated.

It sounds like you have either a short or a jam. Clear the barrel and reopen it up to check for damage. It's possible that your shim job caused the gears to bind, causing your motor to strain and eventually overheat. Worst case scenario, you just fried your motor, battery, and wiring.

Do you have a fuse in your wiring system? Was your 9.6 charged fully?
