I personally have Used Deans and Muchmore and I prefer the Muchmore. Better wire and thicker silicone insulator.

Our latest Tekin Flexjacket wire is very flexible, pre tinned and has a very high strand count. We offer lots of color choices, including pink.

They're all great choices, but I still say TQ 13.

Shouldn't have any problems with mod 1/12 I wouldn't think.

If this is for 1/12 I'd definitely pick the TQ 13ga wire. It is hands down the most flexible out there.

TQ 13awg has more fibres than most 12awg, so TQ 13awg is the best 12awg

I run TQ 16g in mod 12th. Last time I ran it was on a 225' straight asphalt track and track temps were over 135*. I was running a 4.5 boosted. No temp problems or desoldering.
