Hardwiring = less wire length, which = less overall resistance in the connections, which = more speed

I've hardwired for about a year and a half now and would never go back to even deans plugs. Solution to rushed solder joints....Solder the pack in BEFORE you repeak or several minutes before you race so you have time to make a good joint. Good soldering irons help a lot too, like Trinityracinnut said, get a good quality iron with a decent sized tip and you're set .

It is much cooler to hardwire than to use plugs. And car will look cleaner (providing you can solder).

Also, chicks dig guys that hardwire! Swear to God, it's true!
O'D

I've also been testing hardwiring as a cure for baldness. The test has been underway for years now and I'm afraid it's going the other way...

That's because you need to solder each the wires to your Thumbs. Left is positive, right is negative (or is it the other way around).
Use an old lamp cord instead, then it wont matter either way.
