Default Help! What kind of connector is this?

I have a RC18T factory team roller that I bought off a guy who was reducing his collection. I purchased a Venom V18 Pro brushless ESC and 5400 kv motor combo to put in it. This is my first foray into the 1/18 scale. Can someone tell me what type (common name) of power connector is being used by this Venom ESC? It's 2-pin....pictures are attached. Thank you.

They call it a Micro Connector or Mini Connector depending on the brand.

That's a 1/18 standard HPI connector, kind of adopted by everyone as the norm for small scale stuff. I don't know if it has a proper name but I always referred to them as 'large JST's'. In any case I don't like them and prefer micro deans on my 1/18 stuff

Here they are though:
