Default Starter Box Wiring Question

I'd like to run an OFNA truggy starter box with one of my spare 4 cell LiPo batteries.

If I remove the Tamiya connector pictured below and soldered a Deans on there, would the battery power both the motors? It looks like it would work but I figured it would be best to ask someone with experience first. I know next to nothing about wiring.

The box is new. Never modified.

Yup. Just replace the plug and you're good to go. As you probably know, be careful running lipos in a starter box. It's pretty easy to run them down too low and ruin 'em.

I'll make sure not to discharge it too much. Don't want any fires!
