Default Gold or Silver???

Gold or silver? What battery bars do you use? Any special brand? I'm new having to build my own battery packs so I'd like to make sure i'm doing it right!

Thanks
Grant

Gold seems to have better internal resistance.

Silver is the best conductor.....copper is second, then gold....

Everything out there is just gold or silver plated copper anyways. I always used just straight copper bars on all our team packs.....the only thing really gold has advantage on is that it won't corrode like copper or silver can, but that's not a big deal in racing really....
