A little off-topic but what is the best way to keep solder from wicking up into the wire sleeve and keeping it just on the end?

Good heat conduction and minimal time.

+ use only as much solder as necessary.

I get the concept but what is the technique? How much if any solder do I put on the iron before touching the wire? How long do I hold the heat to the wire before introducing the solder? My soldering skills aren't bad but I always seem to get a little bit up in the sleeve.

also, the finer the wire strands (higher strand count), the more it tends to wick up. to me the larger variable is the wire/solder, rather than the actual process. but i'm no pro ..

I have noticed that as well which is actually the reason I asked the question. I tried that TQ Racing wire and it seemed to wick quite a bit more. I also use very thin strands of solder which requires me to hold the iron on longer. Perhaps I should try some thicker solder wire as well.

Your soldering certainly looks professional! What wire do you use?

Thanks!

At first I was like pink wire but on the purple car it works Are you afraid another car will turn your car off if it hits you from the side?

it's funny, i was going to mention the tq-wire because that is what i was referring to as well. i'm still looking for good wire. oddly, the best stuff i have is unlabeled, and must have shipped with an esc i've purchased in the past.

for solder, i got some much more stuff as a race prize one year, and that was pretty stout. (i know, i know, but it actually was good).

You should not have the iron on your work area for more than 3 to 5 seconds. You should never put a dry iron on your work environment then add solder. What I have learned is to help with heatt transfer is to touch the solder to the iron first then put the iron onto your work area then add solder as needed. The heat will transfer to your work area from the tip easier if a little bit of solder is already on the iron. Just my 02. cents
