Deans. Though you should probally buy something compatiable to the equiptment that you already own, this way your not changing out the connectors on your esc and charger.

Did you mean the balance connectors? There seems to be a bunch of different ones of those, and not always obvious what's what and what fits what and such.

i find that twisting and duct tape take up less space

Tekin has some new 4mm bullet conectors out that are beefier. More contact points and stronger spring action. look into them. The current bullet connectors loose thier tension over time. These new ones will solve that.

Check the medium connectors and 12gauge wire. This will flow more amps and have less resistance. Always a good thing for electric racing.

Castle has new 4mm bullets that work great. They fit tight and unlike the old bullets these work great and will last a long time. Been switching all my stuff over to them and its been great.
