The deans you have on there now are better for low turn motors. If you change back to Tamiya plugs you run the risk of melting them. Dont do it.... Leave the Deans on there....

my mate used to have tamiya plugs on his old brushed motor but now just got a 9t brushless setup for his RC and doesnt wanna have to get new batteries and charger for it. i was just wondering if it was possible?

would it work if he changed the tamiya plugs on the batteries to a deans plug??

Don't need to battery or charger. Just do what everyone else is doing, change the connectors on the batteries and charger to deals. Your charger will have a male dean connector so will the esc,and your batteries will have female dean connectors.

Personlly I'd go with these over Deans. They're cheap/reliable and small too.

There are two types of Tamiya plugs- the standard and the Gold. I'd change to the Gold it works better. and it handles the current better.
