    Battery conectors?

    I was just wondering if it really matters if you use the old conector with the adaptor or if the new TRX adaptor straight. I wouldn't think so but i was just wondering if someone knew. I'm runnin the conector on mine and havn't tride the other one yet.

    It doesn't matter but, using the adaptor can cause the white part of the connector to get hot. The traxxas connector can handle much more current, than the adaptor.

    Friends don't let friends use Tamiya plugs. . . Those things are only good for about 15 amps, and are easy to melt with a Nimh battery. Go with Traxxss or Deans plugs.

    the adapters r for charging. running them in the car could cause a problem with heat (melting the molex connector). check owners manual to verify if you have doubts ( pg.#11) to be safe I`d change the ones on your batteries.
