You have to pull on it hard. I broke a few of my clips off. It is on tight. LOL

Using an aluminum buss bar and aluminum angle iron to link the batteries? Aluminum is a terrible conductor compared to steel or something with more nickel in it. I'm just saying I don't want to see something bad happen.

Anyways, the build looks amazing. Can't wait to see some window/door flex!

Isn't aluminum one of the top five best conductors?

I know its not as good as copper or steel. But all my team mates run aluminum and they do just fine.
