    Iv been looking for motor connectors(90 degree quick disconnectors) at local radio shacks, and auto shops but I couldn't find any, I did find some straight ones that are a little big. What I'm wanting to know is if thay look like thay will work or what I can do to make it work?

    I would just solder the wires on, will give a better connection.

    This is going into a m4 grip, that would be a pain to put together and to take apart

    I solder ALL connectors in ALL of my guns, no exception. I did this even in my MP5K that has a similar motor mount. If you have tuned your gearbox properly you shouldn't have to open it more than a few times during a year. Unless you're an indecisive moron like me, that's constantly changing re-tuning the gearbox.

    That's me lol, I don't stop tuning Untill its the best I can get it lol, racing habit, and this is a parts build I'm working on. It doesn't have a starting base(what ever it is I have no idea) but it will be taken apart a fue times still, so I need the connectors.

    Just go and take a look at your local hardware store, you're bound to find some there. You don't have to find connectors with 90 degree bend, just get regular ones and bend them yourself. You want 2,8mm connectors if I'm not mistaken.
