Default Bullet connectors on motor Post ur pics

who is using bullet connectors on their motors??? please post some pics.
Do you notice any performance issues? Do they cause the speedo to run/get hotter? What size are you using? Resistance issues? Thanks to all

i have been using them for almost 2 years no performance difference, if any i cant tell from the driver stand. I usually run 2 classes 17.5 and 21.5 USGT and i can swap motor and tires in about a minute i wouldnt use them with mod motors

No reason why you'd lose that much voltage if this is done properly and with quality plugs... the key is "done properly" I'd say - ie make sure your soldering skills are up to expectations

The thing to do.. is test the resistance across the connector. Like RC Car Action used to do with battery connectors.

Connectors have lower resistance than my meter leads connection point.

Don't sweat it. Keep them clean and tight.

That's where a bench meter, and a 4 lead setup comes in to play.

If you need to go to that much trouble to measure it, the resistance is low enough.
