Default Tamiya Battery Connector?

Hi All!

I was looking into getting a Tamiya Rally car (DF03RA) which needs a few accessories, one of which is a battery. A lot of the battery packs online say "standard connector". Is the connector Tamiya uses for its motors etc considered "standard"?

This is the battery I was looking at, for instance:

"Standard Connector"...will this connect to the 540 motor that comes with the kit? Or will I need a standard-to-tamiya connector?

Thanks in advance!

Tamiya connectors are rubbish and if possible you should immediately bin them and put on some proper Deans or bullet connectors.They will overheat and melt at any amp draw above 30 amps and get loose very quickly.
IMHO

That being said I believe that the connector shown on the linked battery looks to be a Tamiya connector and should be compatible

Yes a Tamiya connector is considered a "standard" connector. It will be fine for a stock vehicle
