They direct solder to the batts, the best thing after that is corally plugs.

shortest possible cables and direct solder.....

minimum effort and "pro-flavour" alternative (although not strictly "pro"):
- shortest and cleanest installation
- always solder your motor to the ESC
- corally connectors for your batteries

and believe me, polarity mix ups happen in the best families....

pros get to change thier packs every race meet.

private guys who buy thier own, its not good to direct solder all the time, as the heat on the 1st and 6th cell will die first.

also much easier to have corally tube, especially when you are there practicing.

I've tried them all and find the Deans to be the easiest to deal with day in and day out.

Deans.

Least resistance tighter connection.
I use it on all my connections and make for a lot hassle in the pits when changing motors or batteries.

The most efficient I have seen measured in terms of resistance is the Deans Ultra plug set-up John Stranahan came up with. If I'm not wrong, he measured equal or less resistance than hard wiring to the batteries. Ask him on his Pantoura thread to give you the specific links and specifications.

That's really not a problem. Direct soldering implies soldering to a bent battery bar. The bar dissapates a lot of the heat before it reaches the cell and doesn't push it past normal operating temperature.

I think most people don't want the hassle of soldering every time you run. Its much better to use plugs for the average racer. Also many clubs around the world don't have AC power which means soldering can be a hassle (but not impossible with 12V irons)

The pros hardwire (direct solder). I hardwire because I race 12th scale and there isn't any extra room for excess wire and connectors. However, I would say most club level racers use Deans plugs.
