Also make sure you only use one coat of paint and no decals on your body, the lower weight will really help your lap times.


Also dont charge your packs all the way, just enough to finish the race, all that extra juice is extra weight!

but other than the normal more solder joints issue, it will most likely make your wires longer. this may or may not matter to sum people i know. but longer wire is added resistance and also more weight. 12gauge wire is no lightweight

If you don't think deans plugs make a difference, then you shouldn't use them b/c you probably can't go for 5 minutes without a wreck. Yes, the advantage is minimal, but everything helps when you and 9 other guys are running lap times within tenths of each other.

For indoor carpet racing I direct solder. Why? Because power is abailable at my pit. As for offroad I will run deans plugs. I mostly run gas so don't need to worry about it anyhow. But I'm surely not going to bring a generator just so I can solder my batts. I guess a power converter or 12v solder iron would work. But man I get tired of soldering...
