I've been using Deans Ultra for the battery to ESC connection. I tried the Astro zero loss 3 pin between the ESC and Motor. It's rated for 50 amps continuous and 75 amps for 2 min periods. I wanted to be able to swap motors without soldering. I've never felt it getting hot yet.

For the life of me I can't figure out why Deans hasn't come out with the polarized 3 pin version for the motor/esc connection. All they have to do is add one more pin to their existing design.

Here's a shot of the setup.

From what I have gathered, Deans and the bullet connectors both have less resistance than the solder joint that attaches them to the wire, so it's really personal preference....I get cleaner installs with bullets. Correct me if I'm wrong...

Correct.

No loss connecters all have a resistance that is less of an enquivilent length of 12 gauge wire, therefore, if the connecter is heating up, that means you have soldered the lead on poorly or the wire is too small of a gauge for the amount of current applied.
