    What connector do you currently have on your ESC and your batteries?

    Do those get warm at all? I wonder the max amps they handle.

    I suppose it's about the same surface area of a deans. You do Atleast solder the wire, right?

    Better contact with the wire. I really do recommend getting deans. I picked up 10 pair for about 8 bucks I think. Here's the new style. Item " 331754241115 " on eBay.

    I would suggest Traxxas because they're easier to solder and have more surface area to pull apart

    As of yet nothing. But your drawing low amps. I'm sure I'd melt them on my wraith. I don't think those would handle 40+amps.

    The auto spade connectors will act as a restriction and not allow proper flow of power . ESC are kinda fickle and restrictions will cause weird shit to happen . Try traxxas or deans . Although deans are kind of a pain in the ass to solder . I use them personally but it's just because I decided to make them all the same and everyone said use deans or traxxas and I picked deans not knowing they were a pain to solder .

    I was just asking so I knew what kind of advice to give . I didn't mean to talk to you like you were a young kid . We have down to 13 year olds on the site and I didn't want to suggest you do something that was over your experience level . But ya solder them up and I bet you get better power flow .
