    traxxas plugs hard to plug in?

    i have noticed recently that as the plugs get older, they seem to get harder to plug in. i have also seen that some trx plugs are more difficult than other trx plugs. has anyone else had this problem? why is it happening? also, how can i fix it?

    Are you guys talking about stock plugs on the esc or ones you bought and installed yourself? I ordered some plugs off ebay once and they ended up being knockoff TRX plugs. The quality was not the same and they had rough edges wich made them hard to plug and unplug. I only buy my connectors from Traxxas from now on...

    Not to mention even on authentic plugs, if you get anything gritty in there it will wear them up a bit and cause issues.

    But at the end of the day they are better than Deans IMO, even if they are sticky there is still way more to hold onto and grip to get them undone.

    Yup. Mine are pretty stiff too depending on what combination of batteries and escs. At least you got something to grab unlike deans!

    yeah, either plugging the battery into the speed control or into the charger
