Default Wire Options

Does anyone know where to find color tinted transparent wire for RC applications?
I've seen it in a few pics of sedans on various sites but I can't locate it anywhere! If you know who makes it, where to get it, or anything about it I'd appreciate your info.
I'm tired of the same old color options and the trasparent looks sweet and it'd definately look sweet on a novak brushless!

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

I think he's asking about the wires with the tinted see-thru coverings.

For wires tinted semiclear coating try nearest audio shop. Some speaker wires come with semiclear coatings.

i personally run 13 or 14 guage. for stock..I like it because it is more limber... If your wires get hot after the run there not efficient.. then go to a larger wire or smaller guage.. larger wire does not always meen more power is passed.. you can only flow so much through it..
