Default Bullet connectors on motor

Hello,

Looking to run a race in 2 classes with the same car. 17.5 and 13.5 so I'd be swapping motors back and forth. Was thinking of going with bullet connectors on my motor to esc to make it much easier. Will I lose a lot of power do to the resistance or will it not make such a difference.

Thank you

+1 with sully. The wire length will be the same so the resistance won't change.

Deans should be a good option

They are solid when plugged in, and have very low resistance.

The only way to know is by using a multimeter, cant get any simpler than that.

BULLET CONNECTORS ARE GOOD BUT THEY CAN WORK THEMSELVES LOOSE, I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE. DEANS ARE MEH, QUITE HONESTLY YOU CAN TRY GOING BACK AND FORTH BUT DOUGHT YOUR LAP TIMES WILL BE THAT BIG OF A DIFFERENCE I HAVE RAN MUY 17.5 BUGGY WITH MOD AND 13.5 MULTIPLE TIMES FOR BIG RACES JUST TO GET MORE TRACK TIME AND USED THE SAME MOTOR.

I used to solder female bullets to the solder tabs on the motor. Swapping motors was easy.

I use 4mm bullets from castle and tie down any extra wire and have never had a connector come apart
