    Dean's not just because it is my name, but because it's the brand I use on all our RC's






    Dean

    I use traxxas plugs. But now I wish I could back in time and use deans. Cause if ur ever out with lots of ppl most likely if u need to borrow a battery it's gunna be deans. I'd swap now but I have way way way! Too many things to resolder.

    So I'd say go deans

    For most of my stuff I use Deans, but since they're only rated to 50 amps continuous and 70 amps burst (and often I push more than that through them) I use EC5's for my high powered stuff as they're rated for 120 amps continuous.

    So for trail trucks and such I use Deans, 1/4 scale biplanes and large helis I use EC5s.
