Default Motor Connectors on Sidewinder

I'm getting my Sidewinder ESC in a few days, and will be using it with a brushed motor for now. I use Deans plugs for all of my motors and batteries, and so am ken to keep that going.

My question is:
If I use two of the ESC wires to a deans plug for my brushed, when I hook up a brushless motor later, can I use the deans for 2 wires, and a bullet for the other one?

I'm assuming there won't be any issues, but not 100%

I don't want to swap to bullets, as between myself, my boy, anf my GF, we have 5 cars at the moment, all on deans

shouldnt be a issue but why not just switch all your motor connectors to bullet connectors they work great and are easy to solder

I was thinking of doing htat, but I guess laze is getting the better of me!

What diameter bullet connectors are best for smaller motors? We won't use anything more powerful than a 19T stock for the foreseeable future.

What diameter are the standard Sidewinder ESC bullets?
