Default First ride - successful, but almost killed me

I put the kit on a Huffy Surfside Beach Cruiser. First time out, nothing. Checked the forum and read that the stock wire connectors are no good. Cut off the connectors and soldered the wires together. Boom. Starts right up. Having a great ride, until...
Rear hub comes loose, locks up, bending the rear axle bolt, the wheel seizing, I almost get thrown head first into the briar patch. Back to the drawing board. Think I'll transfer the kit over to a 15 speed ATB, no coaster brake.
