Default New alltrax xct 500 terminals bend?

Installing my xct 500, with 2ga, it seems to pull the terminal tabs out when you tighten to nut....this normal? Feels cheap...

It's an electrical connection not a roll bar hold down
Can you post a pic of your install?

I thought it was an interesting design, but it works. Are you putting the cable terminals on top of the metal tabs on the controller?

I have not heard of any tab failures. It's an electrical connection - not a bumper bracket. The old AXE type tabs were 2 Xs as thick and still bent so ? Like i said, No reported failures.

Thanks Scotty, I guess I'm just use to the dcx connecters, and they just look a little funky when the tabs pull out.... putting my new D&D torque motor tomorrow to see how it pushes the 30" tires!!

Yes I put my cables on top, and torqued the terminals to the recommended setting, which I think was 90-110 in-lbs.

Based on your picture, it appears that the nut has pulled too far out of the plastic case.

It seems like if either one of the cable lugs was resting on the small plastic tab that protrudes up from the terminal, it would pull the bottom nut up as the bolt was tightened.

I think it's fine, after hooking up m- and b- if you somewhat pull on the tab they bend out.....the nuts just sit in a cut out covered by tab terminal, I'm calling alltrax when they open just to double check, I will update later
