Starter Box concern with LIPO Battery - Need advice?

I have a Kyosho Multi Starter Box Pro 2.0 (KYO36209) and I've just purchased a Lipo Battery which is a Turnigy 5000mAh 4S1P 14.8v 20C.
My concern is when I connect the wires which also look visually thinner than the Lipo wires seem to get warm maybe hot as I did not test long enough to find out, also another thing I noticed were small sparks coming from motor and one of the connections. My worry is is this normal or should I use precautions?

Thanks and I have added a picture with arrows, red arrows indicate which wire's go warm and yellow arrow's indicate where spark's are coming from.</div>

brushed motors spark. Its normal. Sparks are also normal when you make connections as I'm guessing happens where that one happens on the side as that looks like a giant push switch

The wires should be fine cause lets face it you don't need to leave it on long periods of time to start a nitro.

Only thing is make sure you disconnect that battery meter when not in use as I'm sure you know ;)
