Default 12guage Deans + Corraly Connectors?

How do you correctly connect Corally male plugs to Deans 12guage wet-noodle wire?

I have managed to connect it, and the car works fine but I had to trim about half of the wire off the endso that it would fit inside the male connector, then had to trim it again after I tinned the wire...

Is there a better way? This strikes me as it would introduce some resistance or a bottleneck into the system, particularly racing mod..

Might even go back to hardwiring if there is no better way...

Please dont suggest Deans connectors, they dont work very well on a 3+3 Xray

I had the same problem with the corally connectors. What I did was to drill them out so the hole was large enough, not so easy to do. Since then I switched to Trinity's R-Minus connectors, very similar but no modification needed for 12AWG wire. Check them out here: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTJ25&P=0

I don't stick the wire "into" the plugs. I just solder them directly "ontop" of the plug. Like in this pic....

I have used both the Trinity and "corally" versions of this plug, the Trinity is much easier to solder and use,

oo nice pic.. not to hijack this post, but can you post a pic of how its soldered to your battery? some solder it directly to the battery. now that i have the b4/t4, of course i have to either move it up, or solder it on a battery bar. got any pics of that? i'd appreciate it.. or email it to me directly?

Default deans 12g and corralys

i use the same thing i just solder it directly to the the top..........and as always the solder joint offers less resistance but if you have to mutch solder or wire than that idea is gone so ide say to use ther corraly style plugs

Here's a pic of how they are soldered onto my batteries for my 12th scaler. I pulled the plug part way out to show you the male end vs. female end. But my batteries can not be used in my TC4 or B4 or T4. You should do like what is suggested and use a battery bar and solder the female end ontop of that. OR.. switch to Deans Plugs.. OR hard wire. I hard wire my TC4 batteries. But everything else (415/Evo IV/Yok SD/12th scale) is Eagle/Europlug. It's much nicer and easier that way for me. I figure the TC4 is a carpet car. So where there's carpet.. there's power for a soldering iron.

Really quick question.....

I'm about to order some R-Minus connectors from Tower Hobbies, I'm just wondering will the male plug from Trinity fit into the female sockets I already have from Corally?

Thanks in advance.
