Default Bullet motor connectors.

I'm wondering whether it's worth the hassle to swap out connectors on an ESC.
I have three vehicles, and would like to be able to trade around ESC, so they will all use the same connectors.

Are the bullet style connector adequate for 16turn mod motor (in stadium truck or TC3), low 20turn motor (TC3), and 65 turn Integy. The speed controls are two LRPs, and an ancient Novak Duster.
I'm not competeing with any of them, will I have any problems with bullet connectors?

I currently use 4pin Deans... which are all beat, tattered, melted from years of use. The two LRPs are untouched with bullets at this point.

Basically, all my old motors are being replace, and and with 2 new ESCs, I'm thinking I'll stick with the bullet connectors unless there is reason not to.

I'd say the bullet connectors should be no problem. They are designed to stand higher loads than that of a 16turn mod.

You talking gold 3.5mm bullet plugs? I use them all the time, or 4mm long plugs.
