Default 1/8 Electrical Options

Couple of quick questions as I go E8:

If I use 2x2s, will lipo's with 4mm bullet connectors do the trick, or do I need to go for presided with deans etc? Will bullets overheat/not fit in most trays?

Secondly, what's my best motor/esc combo's to go for, including if any new stud is round the corner, for 8e buggy?

Bullets should be fine - only issue is limiting yourself to packs with bullet connectors, but....if you are contemplating it at all, then I'm sure you've worked that out.

Tekin RX8/T8 and Castle MMM/neu combos are the most popular, and probably for pretty good reason. No reason to stray.

use the EC5 connectors ..They cost $ but you can get the most voltage out of it for more power. then deans for savings... if your bashing and trashing the better the plug the longer you'll be running without your plugs coming undone. JMO
