Test ride to disaster, real fast.

So after 18 months of working on my bike, I finally had it ready to road test. I've fired it up in the garage, everything was running great. Did a once over to make sure all of the signals and inputs worked correctly. Went to take it for a ride and made it about 8 miles and it died. When I pulled over on the side of the road the thing was billowing smoke everywhere. I looked down and something had caused my antigravity battery to meltdown.

I have completely rewired the bike. It has a M-Unit installed with the button. And I have no idea what could have caused this. Most of the forums say that it's from the post shorting, but there is no way that this happened. Battery sits in a TJ Brutal Custom antigravity battery box and I have made a bracket to firmly secure the battery from bouncing or vibrating.

Does anyone have any idea what could have cause this battery disaster or ever heard of it happening?

Looked pretty similar to this, just way more smoke on mine. https://youtu.be/7STB4NzRPgk
