Very nice build you got there. Just curious as to why you are using
mechanical speed controllers insed of esc? Using an esc would power all motors thus saving tons of space for your other wiring job. Maybe there a reason for using msc that I not seeing.

I have had some 12 V ESC, but Im useing small car Batteries. They get loaded with 14,5 Volt. And so both ESC burned ! 100 bugs!
One MSC -> 5 bugs

They got 3 Steps.
I changed the resistants. (they are blown away, too)

Only if I drive slow,
1st Switch, the resistants are used.
Batt. -> Resistant -> Engine 1 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Resistant -> Engine 2 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Resistant -> Engine 3 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Resistant -> Engine 4 -> Batt.

2nd Switch: Batt. -> Engine 1 -> Engine 2 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Engine 3 -> Engine 4 -> Batt.

3rd Switch: (full throttle) Batt. -> Engine 1 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Engine 2 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Engine 3 -> Batt.
Batt. -> Engine 4 -> Batt.

Didn't know you're using a small car battery. That's a first time I heard of. Makes sense now. Props to you man for building an awesome machine.

Default Nice Build, Congrats!

Oliver what can I say? Awesome! That is some serious engineering. Nice work. Where are you at in Germany? I used to live in Baumholder and Kirn Nahe near Idaroberstein.

Its a fire truck so it has to be mostly red. Not many choices there. . .

Its a fantastic work of craftsmanship, you should be proud!
