So my local shop sold me batteries with XT60 connectors, along with adapters to go from XT60 to the Traxxas plugs on the ESC. I then purchased a second set of batteries from SMC with XT60 plugs, only to find when bashing these seem to pull the adapters apart. I have backed the battery compartment with high density foam and bashed pretty hard last night with no issues (so think it was the batteries being shorter and pulling them out).

All that said, I need to standardize on a plug. I want to get another vehicle (likely 4S max) and I am looking for suggestions. Whats the best plug for lipo use from 2-8S? I don't want to discount that I may own an X-Maxx someday.
