Use deans - *real ones*, or (much) better yet, use EC5 connectors especially for high current applications. I run them on my GTP2 and it regularly exceeds 200A sustained on speed runs. They don't even get warm.
Hmmm that's funny that you've melted them. I've had no problems or heat and I've been running them at near 70amps. The only burn't hxt banana connectors I have are from two 3s sky lipo's that I accidently hooked up to eachother, like a noob.
