Simply replace the 4mm ends with 8mm ends.

I made some adapters using stubby pieces of 10ga and the correct ends.

You need to measure the inside diameter, not the outside diameter of that female end to make sure you get proper male bullet. Probably 6 or 6.5mm bullets.

As for wiring the cap pack, the positive is the flat square end on the xt90 connector.

So the positive lead is the one with the yellow shrink wrap on the esc.

The red wire SHOULD be the positive on the cap pack but being all kinds of nasty things can happen when the polarity is reversed, solder at your own risk! Make absolutely certain the polarity is correct!
