IMO Powerpole connectors would work better in this application.

How are you guys fitting all this under your bodies? Non of this will fit under the Speed 12's I run or even my Parma Speed 8 as low as I cut it.

A few people wanted to know the details on how to make the connector, so I'll post it here. This is the technique I use:
  1. Using a dremel with a cutoff disc, cut a Deans connector in half. (The extra metal connector can be used later to short the brushed motor connector)
  2. Place some sandpaper (600 grit or so) face up on something flat.
  3. Lightly rough up the side of the connector that is to be CA'd, being careful not to change the angle of the connector.
  4. Using thin CA, glue the 2 connectors together (place them on something flat while holding them together so that the angles are flat)
  5. Take some backing soda and fill in the gap between the connectors.
  6. Drip a drop or 2 of thin CA into the center of the backing soda.

Your right, but Anderson Power Poles are a pain to solder and big. I switched to the Twisted Gold Bullet connectors after I went though Tamiya, Deans, and Power Pole connectors, and they are the best. The only thing is I have to watch out for putting the connectors on backwards.

This was a great idea. I did this on my TC. It would be nice if Deans sis it for us though!

I've had to do equally as weird. I run a mamba max with a brushed motor. I've got 3 wires coming off the motor to the speedo from the negative side. I've got one positive off the motor and the speedo which connect directly to the battery. Yes it works.
