Steve, why does the wife's beer go flat when sitting in the fridge overnight ?
Ive never had a problem with my empty bottle going flat, but she is driving me nuts with accusations that somehow I am causing this.
Thanks, Fred

Steve:

I assume your signiture is true, so here are the ?'s i have

1. I was wondering if 12 gauge wire on the gtx / gts speedys is worth it in stock class?

2. Also the manual for these 2 speedys says to use 14 gauge, so 14 must be good enough yes or no?



3. Also i was told 12 gauge wont fit in the holes on the speedy, & to drill it out.
but i was wondering if the copper/gold track passes through the pcb & would drilling the hole out bigger stuff it up?

You need to have her start storing her opened beer in your hyperbaric refrigerator instead of your standard one to ensure that there is enough pressure to keep any gases in the beer in solution longer.

Yes, my signature is true...my name really is Steve Weiss

... oh yeah I work at Novak as well

To answer your questions:

1. Generally speaking we measure more voltage drop in your average persons wires than that occurs in the speed control...so theoretically 12 AWG wire on the GTX would be better.

2. Most of the time 14 AWG seems to be fine for most applications. Some people can tell the difference when they try 12 AWG, some cannot. But I would say for most applications 14 AWG is fine...and it's already presoldered in there!

3. 12 AWG wires will fit in the GTX but I don't believe they will fit in the GTS. It is NOT advisable to drill out the hole to make room for the wire... you are essentially drilling away the copper that connects the multiple layers in the boards which contribute to the efficiency/power handling capacity of the board. By drilling the hole out you are effectively reducing the number of layers you are using and thereby reducing the performance of the ESC!

So, the crux of the issue is that 14 AWG seems to be just fine for most applications and unless you've got a GTX (with holes that are big enough to accomodate 12 AWG) and you are handy with a soldering iron I wouldn't recommend trying to try 12 AWG.
