Default ESC / Motor connector

I am running a hobbywing 60 amp esc with a hobbywing 5.5 motor in my t4.1 and a couple of the male 3.5mm connectors are wore out (no spring left in them and want to disconnect). I am debating if I want to just buy more 3.5 connectors and switch the bad one out or buy 4mm connectors (like the one castle uses)? Should I spend the extra money on the 4 or just stay with the 3.5 because there is pretty much no difference at all??

Go for the castle type 4mm, they are safer and have a bit less resistance as well.

I've also noticed that many motors from hobby partz such as tacon motors use the 4mm connectors. If you need to replace them I'd Just switch to 4mm
