The 2S is 2 series... 2 cells wired in series to produce 7.4V rating. A 2S lipo can have more that 2 cells to gain the milliamp hour rating. Also a 2s lipo will charge to 8.4V normally even though they are only rated at 7.4V.

Best connector IMO is a Deans. Only takes a few minutes to change out with a decent soldering iron....

^^ Yeah see the other issue is that I dont have a sodering iron. I am just getting into onroad and new to just about every aspect of it. I am used to nitro off road and they are very different worlds.

So I am stuck in a quandry

Thanks for the help though I didnt think I would have to invest and learn how to soder just to get into onroad

The money you spend to put on the deans connectors...solder, soldering gun, heat shrink, deans, is far less than a new ESC and Motor. Trust me...I know. Five days into a $200 combo, I wish I put deans on. I put them on, now. YouTube. Soldering Dean's connector.

Thanks guys but I found a connector on Tower for 4$ that takes me from standerd to bullet. I think I am going to go that route cuz I dont feel comfortable enough to work on a Lipo battery and change the plugs on it. Plus its my 1st on road car I just want to get going in the sport, baby steps are safer instead of diving head first.

Thanks again and Ill let everyone know how it all comes together.

Bullet connectors are fine, but it is too easy to be in a hurry and plug them into the wrong polarity (they aren't keyed like a Deans connector). I've seen people who have been doing this for a long time slip up and plug the + and - backwards, and it only took about 2 seconds of having it plugged in backwards to smoke their ESC. Deans are foolproof (assuming you soldered them correctly). Luckily, it was only $80 to get the $200 ESC repaired. He has since switched to Deans so that it won't happen again.
