The part # is MAXACC816 from Maxx Products Inc. Just do what tpczx6 said and ask them for that part #. Castle Creations use to have 16 ga. wire. but you will have to check their website.

I have some in stock. It's the Astro Flight #523. Horizon should carry it too.

TQ Racing Products supplies 16 gauge in orange and dark blue. It's called Drag Leadwire, originally designed for slot cars. The insulation is very thin and the conductor is made from 665 strands of copper; very flexible. Used by Calandra Racing.

Castle Creations has a very good 16 gauge wire. High strand count with a thin outer wire.
