Problem with twisted nickel

My problem as of right now is when I try to use any complicated build other than single spaced nickel coils (I've tried twisted and clapton) my TC never kicks on, I see the temp but it'll go and go until the cotton is burned to ash even with the temp set obscenely low at like 200°F As normal single coils work just fine I'm stumped.. any ideas? (I have yet to try my stainless that I just got in, or titanium yet)

Probably be poor terminals, through hole type are particularly bad.  I have done dual claptons on a velocity that work fine and mostly use twisted Ni for the last 11 months. One tank that gave me problems with twisted was a cheap Orchid V4 clone, I had to sand the bottom of the screws flat and use tipple twisted 34 AWG (0.16 mm) as 2 strands would not make a good connection in the posts and there is not enough room to wrap them under the screw heads.
