Get the deluxe crimper...... a little pricey, but much easier to use than the discount crimper.

The connector kits are good to get too, or you can order bulk parts from them as well.

Great people to deal with, have bought from them several times.

Thanks for the heads up, I have a Deluxe kit on order. Will update thread with finished product.

And do not use Photobucket when you do.. Because they go dead after a while. There is a excellent system for uploading photos on this forum

Photobucket is kaput, dead, gone, suicide via trying to extort money out of customers, so for the Racing Gods sake use Imgur.

I'm using an old Android device, and it works fine. RCTech changed their image upload process recently (past few months?). There's no need to involve more 3rd party hosting providers that can block hotlinking at any time like Photobucket did.

Having done both crimping and re-soldering of signal leads I would recommend the following:

First, if you have the soldering iron and steady hands to re-solder these, just do that, I have found it faster and easier (for me) because the machine-crimped leads are always more even and reliable than hand-crimped pieces.

If you do want to crimp the wires and put a new plug on it tin the stripped wire ends with a tiny amount of solder before crimping the brass plug lead to it, then with a perfectly clean soldering tip give it another hit with the heat so the solder sticks to the crimp. This will ensure a good connection to the plug, and strong enough to survive abuse. I have had a plug I installed come undone and I was lucky it was during testing instead of through the sweeper at 70 feet per second.
