    For anyone using bullet connectors like on your replacement motors, do you know if the additional metal leads impacts with any significance the resistance; hence, current going to the motors? V=IR

    Thanks.

    There won't be any issues using the 3.5 mm bullet connectors, they are gold plated and connect together solidly. I used them when upgrading to T-Motors. These connectors look to be good for at least 30 amps, depending on wire size used of course. I bought the bare connectors on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321095592473?ss ... 1439.l2649

    Not shown in pic but they include heat shrink tubing as well.

    T-Motor Antigravity installed today. Decided to use the bullet connectors. Couldn't wait to order those "gold" connectors nor try to find a Radio Shack. Hopefully these regular connectors from Loew's works just as well without any degradation to the electricity flow to the motor.

    All the connectors that were used for all four motors weighs in at 0.8 oz. on a digital scale.
