    Traxxas connectors are hard to solder correctly. To make it easier i would try using Deans connectors as your first soldering job.

    I asked someone at a rc day and he said you can buy the little "pigtails" with traxxas connectors

    The AC680 plugs right into the wall. The T6 requires a separate power supply to plug into the wall.

    And with the wall charger I can use those board thingys like on the video someone shared earlier in this thread and can I get one off of hobbypartz because I will get 2 2s and 1 3s if I do it but the 2s are 7.4v but I have a 8.4 nimh which one would be faster?

    Do you mean the balancing board? Those are needed for LiPos only.

    Try Gens Ace batteries from the same website as those chargers. They are the best bang for your buck when it comes to LiPos.

    More volts will make your car faster, but the LiPo is a much better battery.

    I'm not familiarly with parallel charging so I can't help you there.

    8.4 will be faster, but get LiPos. Don't waste your time on NiMH.
