The red wire we use is American-made, high copper-fill wire, with slightly lower resistance numbers per motor wind than the GW; the gold wire is Chinese-made, somewhat less expensive.
Red Wire Stators
for our Ballistic 540s are preferred in Oval racing, where racers find
that the lower resistance numbers of RW stators translates to better motor performance.
We include epoxied, RW stators as an option in our Build-A-Ballistic™ 540 program and will be offering them for sale separately in Feb. The B vented end bells may be increasing performance more than the RW stators....
Until Jan 31, customers can return gold wire 540 stators and exchange them for RW stators through our Trade-In Program.
