No, and i wouldn't use them on that high powered mamba monster. You want the most direct connections you can get. What i did before i learned to solder was cut the plastic casings off the deans connectors and push the blades into a traxxas male connector. They are pretty much the same size as what traxxas connectors use. The only problem is that the original connectors dont have the locking pins like the traxxas ones use. Just make sure you put some tape around the wires and connectors to keep them from slipping out. My advice if you dont do that, find somebody who reguarly solders traxxas connectors to wire it up for you.

Practice soldering and do it yourself. This is what this hobby is about.

Yeah not to hard to solder traxxas connectors once you get the hang of it.

Nah just make sure you get the positives and negatives right where the deans +/- were.

+1 Better to do everything the right way the first time around.

If you can solder it shouldnt be that big of a deal. Just make sure your polarity is right, and nothing has a chance to short against anything else.
