If you are using a stick pack, Deans are easier to use than a Corally - with the Corally there's a high-risk of a short.

I prefer the Corally on side-by-side or saddle packs.

Nothing beats direct solder....As long as you have a good iron.
Corrally's pull a close second ifyou have to have nay connection...
Stick Pack the only way to go is deans.
Hope this helps,

i've heard direct solder is the best, but if you don't want the hassel, get deans

Corally is the best option if you have the JRXS and don't have a steady hand for direct solder on that car. I converted all my batteries and cars over to Corally. Deans can be used in the new car if you can find a way to manage the wires to keep them away from the belts. I would not suggest these plugs for a stick pack though. Use them only on side by side packs.

My opinion on the matter is that if I am going to spend $80.00 on the best batteries that I can find and if I am going to blow $180.00 on an ESC, if I am going to be running the best Servo and radio gear I can get my hands on and if I am going to spend countless hours rebuilding my motors and setting up my car, I can spend the extra 5 seconds it takes to hard wire or direct solder my connections.

If you consider all the above and are like me, connectors are a watse of money and performance.

If not, I do like the Corally gold connectors and ran those when I was first starting out in the hobby. I do not like the deans connectors unless I am running the prebuilt stick packs (like for the Tamiya Series).

The Corrally appear to be the best choice after solder based on what is used at the local club. After that... Deans which I use. I don't like messing around with the iron between heats.

The way I see it, and performance I gain by soldering I will lose with the half dozen board contacts through the heat anyways +)

hardwiring may have a little advantage, but deans plugs are more convenient.
