Default Simplicity VS high tech

I'm 'old-school'. I'd rather use direct plug in connectors for my receiver to receiver battery combo. then there are also electronic switches, manual 'on-off' switches, micro switches' etc
I'm curious to know what kind of electrical connection do you all use to the receiver.
A lot of emphasis is about servos and radio equipment, but not much said about the wiring configuration or choice of connectors, or choice of switches. I've been plugging my receiver battery directly to the receiver, and this method is the most simplest one i'm using since it has never failed or came undone in a crash.
besides simple plug in connectors, what are your thoughts on aluminium servo arms? good or bad in 1/8 on road cars??

I've used the Airtronics switch harness with charge port (#97001) or the similar version from JR for approx. 15 years without a single failure. Every new car gets a new switch and I'll change a switch about every 2 years of use.
