Default Guge Wire for GTX

I recently just purchased a Novak GTX, and I really like it a lot. However, I would like to change the color of the 14 gauge wire to blue. Can anyone please help me on where to get this at?

Also, if there all the same color, how can I tell EASILY if it goes to the motor, battery, or if its negative or positive.

You should be able to ge the wire at any good hobbey store.
I thinck tower allso has wire. you want the good silicone wire. Either 14 or 12 gauge. as for telling witch wire goes to the batt or motor. You should be able to get a manual for it off the manufactors web site.
hope this helps

When you resolder the whole thing together again, slip a small bit of heat-shrink over each wire at the motor side. get heat-shrink in the original wire colours and you'll be fine.

Looks very "Pro".... If you're using 12g, then be sure to liberally tin the wire first. You may need to shave down the end of the wire to get it to fit onto the tabs on the esc.

Do one wire at a time and you'll be fine.

12 gauge is what most use
Blizzard Concepts / Team Losi / Team ProMatch / Team MuchMore / The SPEED Shop / Ko Propo USA / AVID RC / BigDog Graphics / Nitro R/C Chop Shop /

if you are going to install in a 12th scale use 14g..... it's lighter!
