    Thanks for the info… purchased through your site. I watch you videos with my son and I appreciate your strait forward family friendly manner.

  • carpballet:

    Video starts at 1:20. Seriously

  • LEO JK:

    I can advise everyone here even better connector, and the box of them is the price of those much favored IC-5. Being a professional Electrician, WAGO connectors are the best. And the box of 50 of them cost £15.00. Which is equivalent of just 2 IC5 connectors. Wago are reusable for the rest of your life, Never fail on connection, because they have a Shark-Teeth type Mechanism, and as for the amperage, they will exceed all of these RC (Childish) connectors. 😉 Especially WAGO-221, Once you use them, You will never change to something else. And You don't even need to Solder anything at all. Search them, and you will love them. Kind Regards. Leo (Arch Tech & Eng)

  • Tom Espinosa:

    Is it uncommon for a NiMH battery to have a Deans connector? The RC I want to get has Deans and I'm having a hard time finding a battery to get for it since I'm leary of using a Lipo battery.

  • josh:

    Xt90 is my go to. Got fed up with the deans connector getting stuck. Xt90s have good grip so you don’t have to pull on the wire

  • Mikko Rantalainen:

    Are there XT90 connectors with grimped connectors? Soldered connectors will obviously fail if the connector ever heats up to melting the solder. High power connectors for residential use must use grimped connectors exactly for this reason.

  • Cole Staples:

    I fried an esc

  • Cole Staples:

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to install bullet connections on my motor for quick swaps in my race buggies

  • Hifin Sword:

    At the 4:10 mark you changed from holding a female IC3 to matching up a male IC3 to mate with a female EC3. I was watching the video to figure out if it is the MALE or FEMALE IC connector that has the metal probe between the power bullets. And that switch confused me. It went from having the probe in the female conn to not having a probe in the male IC3. It was a quick change switcharoo that almost caught me.

  • OfficialAveryKing:

    Can you do the best plugs for drag racing on the drag slash, dr10 and other drag race builds for 2s

  • Micheal Sansoucie:

    New to RC and have probably a stupid question. Can you hook one 4s lipo to a two plug 6s system. If so how do you do it without damage.

  • Noreen Kemal:

    Can you tell me please I'm ordering a rc car and I'm getting a dean connector is that going to be all right so I just plug in and ready to go

  • Q Speed Racer:

    My flash light has a tamiya looking connector but lock on the side and round one rounded part facing to side to

  • Mattia Zanni:

    Traxxas is like Apple in the rc world
