Default Possible to replace a receiver lead?

Slightly off topic ... I have a Tekin RS running 1S in a 1/12 scale, and it seems the black wire lead to my receiver must have overheated, as the rubber insulation has cooked off at several places along the lead. I haven't yet taken it apart to replace the lead, but I'm guessing it is a direct solder onto the board which may be tricky to do. Has anyone had to do this? Difficulty scale? My alternative is to heat shrink the entire lead. Thoughts?

(By the way, my theory as to how this happened is that it was caused by a weak solder joint to my deans connector (held together by the heat shrink, and the solder joint to the booster). I'm thinking the ESC was running the motor mostly off the receiver lead. I was having a hard time figuring out why my car was so slow and turbo boost didn't work ... thought I had cooked the battery, replaced that, then thought I had cooked the motor, so I put in a different motor, and all along it was a bad solder joint!)

I highly doubt the receiver would draw enuff current to be able to melt the insulation. To me it is more likely you were soldering something and the wire brushed the soldering iron

It's the entire length of the wire ... bare wire next to brittle pieces of insulation next to bare wire all the way up the lead. I know what it looks like when you cook the insulation off a wire ... done it before when I was doing some experimentation with an old lipo that was headed for the trash.

No, 7500 is the end. The start is the lowest option it gives you when it calculates the RPM.

incase you dont want to read all bajillion pages of this, i think i saw ppl able to suck down as much as 3500mah in a 5 min run, but i dont think there are many choices of battery other than 5000-5600 mah. i have read that you should stay away from the reedy 1s battery because the weight is uneven left to right and unbalances your car. otherwise i thinker there are alot of SMC and thunderpower lovers out there.

oh and ty for bringing back this thread. i had wondered what happend to it.

what all does the 1s lipo check box do? does it just turn off the BEC? would that mean we could use the RSpro for high voltage applications and with a RX pack and have everything work?

i was in the drag racing seen for a little while and was curious.
