series is alike a flashlight from + to - to + to -

parallel is taking all the + and take them to the +ESC
and all the - to the ESC

if that helps?

I thought someone tested the wires and found out they are already wired in parallel from the ESC. Monday when I get a chance at work I will check it out and let everyone know.

Parallel wiring mod:
Take the yellow wires from the esc and solder them together. Take the blue wires from the esc and do the same. Solder the blue wires from the motors together and do the same for the yellow wires. Combine all of the yellow wires together and all of the blue wires together.
Pretty good thread on how to do this here:

Tips n tricks of THIS section, rs10, page 2 post #36

somoney has already done the testing, there is NO need to do any special wiring as Redcat has already done it for you, internal to the ESC.

Use a $4 multi meter from harbor freight and you'll see that they are already in parrallel. Any improvement people say they see is most likely placebo effect. You're best bet to get rid of it is to upgrade your motors, or gear down the rear motor. If you gear down the rear, your clod stall will be less in forward but WORSE in reverse. If you squeeze in the big motors, all your clod stall will go away and you'll miss it now and then. Untill you put on a dig switch. Things too consider.
