Default 90 degree banana plug?

does anyone make a 90 degree banana plug? I have searched and could not find one. I have a rc8te and I am using the reedy hard case batteries. When I plug in a banana plug into the side, it hits the center drive shaft. Any ideas what to do here?

I've ran into the same problem, and found these as my solution: https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...ns&pn=ORN40002
The male plugs are pictured in the middle. They have no top to solder to, but they are hollow to allow the wire to pass through. What I did was remove about 1" of insulation on the wire and passed it through the plugs center. Then soldered the very end (part that plugs into the battery, not wire side), or tip of the plug and then used a dremel to make the tip smooth again if any solder builds up. This allows the wire side to stay nice and flexible. Once the plug is inserted into the battery the bullet actually goes deep enough into the socket making it look as if its just wire coming out.
They also sell these in 10 packs of female, or just males.

These male and female have a hole at 90 degrees to let you make 90 degree connections. You just won't be able to use the biggest wire that the ordinary connection lay out will allow.

The bullets with the 45 cut are better in that regard. Here are 4mm bullets with the cut -

The females are 1st in the list for 'other items'.
