Default Hard Wiring????

Hey,
I am thinking of hard wiring my electronics…My question is how do you charge your batteries between heats when you hard wire you batteries, and how much problems does hard wiring cause at the track?

Hmm, problems when charging?`I just dis-solder and charge.
You need bent batterybars on the batterywirepoles though so you have something to solder on and for the chargers alligator clips.
A "on-off-able" fast-heating and WARM soldering iron is the best.

*edit* whole reply got weird..

you can charge your batteries when they are soldered onto your ESC. Just don't turn on your ESC while they're charging or you'll be in a world of hurt! I hard-wire everything. I change my packs after every run....but I can re-peak them before a race with them still soldered into the ESC.

I just got a duratrax mini peak charger, but it comes with the standard Tamiya battery connector...Looking at that, I think that it makes it not hard to charg hadwired batteries...What type of connectors do you you guys use and where can I get them? My guess is that you have some type of clips....
Thanks

So you don't cut up the wires on your charger goto radioshack and pick up a RC battery repair kit, it has a female tamiya plug in it them pick up a pair of alligator clips and solder them to it.... now you can just plug the connector onto your charger and be done....

I would strongly recommended you staying with what you got or get the Trinity or Deans plugs if want to make an up grade from the Tamiya plugs... Hard wiring your electronics to your battries is more of a headache then a convience. If anything you want to change in your set up; change the plugs on your Duratrax charger to alligator clips.
