Thanks for the replies, guys. Any input from anyone who's used the Traxxas connector for a long time? Has it loosened or worn out in any way? From an ease of use perspective, if they're both zero loss, it sounds like this is the way to go!

I think the Traxxas ones you have to put together, correct. I always run Deans and never had any issues.

Companies have tried to do better then the Deans plug for years. Many have tried but the deans plugs continue to live on. They are small efficient and don't fail. I have not seen a traxxas plug up close yet but no reason to change for me.

Deans are nice for racing. I like the Power Poles for bashing, monster trucks, and boats.

some of my traxxas connectors have been in use for about as long as traxxas connectors have been available, and I have no issues with them coming loose with age and use yet (although in fairness, I don't use my RC's a lot)
