Hey guys, I have a quick question or two. I shortened the leads on my electronics using JR style plugs from Custom Electronics. Everything went well and is working fine. But after looking at Alphaqgti's pic I see that metal prong you instal on the wire is inserted all the way into the JR plug (or seems to be) on mine there is about 1/8 of a inch of metal exposed at the top of the JR plug. Do I need to push the wires in further (though it doesn't seem they can go further), or is there another brand of plugs for sale that has a tighter tolerance?

Also, on my tekin RS Pro... it works flawlessly while plugged into my reciever. But when connected to my hotwire adapter the plug is loose and constantly disconnects from my software while still being plugged in. Anyone else have this issue with the custom electronics plugs?

All my connectors are black. I replaced all 2-wire JSTs with 3-wire Futaba J connectors. Wires were colored with a permanent marker.

I use plugs from MPI. The terminals click into the plug and sit below the plastic. I've never had any issues with the MPI plugs and my Hot Wire.

Hey Alphaqgti, thanks for the link. I really appreciate it. I think I found what I am looking for on page two of their site. Wish I had heard about this brand before I did the job, I don't care for doing a job twice lol. But I do want my gear to work without issue so it looks like I will place an order when I get home from work. Thanks again man!

I bought the MPI crimper tool too. Best $17 you can spend for perfect connections.

I bought the custome electronics tool... what a peice of junk lol. I ruined six terminals with it before I said screw it, and crabbed my craftsman micro pliers kit. I've done all for plugs with my micro needle nose pliers and they are all fantastic lol. Thanks for the sugestion though, but I can wire a peice of gear with less frustration this way

When I was searching for purple silcone wire a month ago I ended up having to go on ebay. Just search 12 gauge white silicone wire and I bet you will find some.
