i would personally put the female on the speedo just so if the car is on, but no motor is hooked up it cant short across a metallic surface.

you always use the male on the input (battery) wires, and always use female connector on the out put (motor) wires. this is so that 1. you dont plug the battery into the wrong wires and toast your esc, and 2. you dont short out the motor wires on something metal if you have the motor disconected.

i enjoyed using deans (on the motor) in my buggy, but after a rough landing or a bump, the connectors can come apart. if you use deans, use electrical tape to keep them together!

i just solder my wires on directly.

my .02 cents! cheers!

I didn't use Dean's on the motor side. I used them on the ESC. Male on the battery and Female on the speed control. Now I do direct solder instead.

With male on the battery side aren't you worried about accidental shorts when the battery is unplugged? At least the female side doesn't have any exposed contacts.

kuzo,

I don't run Dean's anymore. I haven't for about year and half. You only run into issues if you have polar opposites when you plug in the battery.

i believe what he was referring to is if the positive and negative terminals are closed with a metallic surface or something. it can cause damage to batteries or perhaps worse. female connectors are best used for anything that current is flowing out of.

Exactly. The male connector touches against a metal surface and it can cause a short. That can't happen using the female connector.
