    Will using a batt with a tamiya connector affect performance?

    Hi all, just won my erevo on ebay 236! Bargain!

    I have got a few tamiya-plugged batteries so I bought two TRX-to-Tamiya converter adaptors. My question is: Will I get better performance if I buy batteries with a TRX plug rather than use my tamiya plugged batts through the addaptors?

    If there is a difference how much?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Expect to melt those connectors rather quickly, they will be a bottle neck. Best bet is get you some TRX connectors and solder them on.

    You can change the plugs you know. Have you considered that?

    I had all my Tamiya connectors switched over to TRX. Cars, Batteries and Chargers. This made things a lot easier. LHS did the conversion for me for $2.50 a connector. I had the same comment from the LHS on the adapters being a bottleneck.
