Default Tamiya Plug on ESC? 2012 Dynamite FUZE Sensored 17.5T ESC/Motor Combo (DYN3781C)

Hello,

I picked up a used ECX Torment (2012 or earlier I think) from someone on craigslist who had it sitting around their house. It came with a Dynamite FUZE brushless combo installed, a Traxxas 2-cell/3-cell lipo balance charger, a dead 7.2v nimh battery (which I think was for the traxxas rustler that I got at the same time), and an empty box for an onyx lipo battery. The ESC has a tamiya power plug on it.


Is it possible that the lipo battery could have also had a tamiya plug?


From what I can tell, lipo batteries do not come with a tamiya plug option.


Would it be better to put a tamiya plug on a lipo battery or to change out the plug on the ESC to fit a lipo battery?


Thanks!

just depends on what you plan on running
I standardize everything I have (40 + rc cars/trucks) Im old school so everything I get I convert to deans plugs but the new standard seems to be xt60 connectors
your best bet is to convert the esc to what ever type of plug is used on your batteries

Is it a standard Tamiya molex with the cheap steel pins or an aftermarket Tamiya compatible molex with gold plated bullets? I once got a car from FS Racing that had the gold plated molex which was compatible with Tamiya connectors and I used it with a 3S LiPo doing speed runs without any issue, you can see me reference the connector in this clip:
