    MM ESC users what size plugs? and more

    What size plugs do I need to connect the VXL motor? Are they 3.5mm or something?

    Also, what settings are you running?

    I am not sure what ESC you are using, but I have the MMM ESC fromt he 2200kv combo and it took the 6.5 mm plugs that I had to order. I soldered them on with no problems, my ESC is in and working fine...I think mine uses the bigger plugs because of the 1/8th scale system and the amp draw it is set up to handle..

    I think the MM Pros use a smaller plug but I am not sure.

    The MM has 4mm connectors for the motor. Your VXL motor uses 3.5mm connectors. You will have to switch the MM over to 3.5mm, which is easy to do.

    Tower also sells various adapters that don't require soldering.

    I am using the MMPro and 2650 motor which has 6.5mm bullets. Castle recommended I use 6.5's on the esc to match the motor and that is what i did. If you are using the vxl motor I HIGHLY recommend swapping the motor to 4mm to match. The castle bullets have less resistance as well.
