Hi All

Once again I need advice for you more experienced Modelers please..I have fitted EC 3 connectors on all my models but my Sebart Shark for which I have just purchased 3 new 2650 mAh batteries fitted with 4mm Bullet Discharge Plug: Connector(10g)wire,My ESC is a Hacker 40amp pro.but its fitted with 3mm bullett connectors,wondering best way to connect up ie is it best to fit small wires of ESC to 4mm bullets or is there another safe way that I could bring the 4mm bullets down to 3mm,Idealy I would like to fit EC 3 s all round but cant fit them to 10g wire,Best solution please.....Many thanks in advance Taff

Whats stopping you from chopping off the 4mm and soldering 3mm bullets on? Or have I misread your post.

I'm no electrics expert but the three electric models I have are all fitted out entirely with 4mm bullets - it just seemed a sensible size (capacity to spare for what I do). I just change any batterries I buy as soon as I get them.

Yep, as folks allude, several choices Taff
Probably all comes down as to whether you want the fleet standard on EC3 and if the batteries are going to be used with other models. What ever you do there's a lot to be said for having everything the same across your models and accessories.
