I broke two fuses in a row after trying to install my new matrix turbo motor from evike. By the way, this motor is a beast, it's better than the guarder hi speed motor. So I looked at my connectors and they were alittle bare from me pulling them off with pliers numerous times, so I covered them up with electrical tape thinking that it would solve me problem. I looked alittle more and found that somehow my motor was eating up my black wire. My black wire in my motor was bare in one spot too so I took apart my gearbox, rapped that part of my wire with electrical tape too and then taped it down to the gearbox out of the way of my motor. Since my wires were bare in so many spots they could have been arcing and shorting out when they were grounding out on my motor plate. Hopefully this solved my problem, but I still have to buy new fuses. My question is how many amps were kwa's wires meant to take before melting, because I want to be able to put maybe a 20amp or 30amp fuse in my gun so that it won't blow again. Will my wires melt before hitting 30amps?

The wires won't melt with only 15A. I just wan't to know if I'm safe with 20A. I put a speed motor in my gun and it's generating over 15A.

I run with 20 amp fuses in my guns and haven't had one burst yet.

Just put a 20A fuse in my gun and have shot already about 1.5k rounds. Fuse hasn't busted.
