Yes, it is what most run quite successfully.

I've checked with several team drivers and confirmed that they've been using 13 gauge in mod TC with no issues.

Will the 13 gauge wire work for a 7.5T Ballistic motor? My setup is a TLR 22 with a Tekin Rs and 7.5T Ballistic on indoor clay. I was also curious why you don't make a 12 gauge?

Thanks!

Yes it will work fine.
I may get corrected here but, I don't think 12g is warranted, due to the high quality copper and the fine strands resulting in higher strand count the current capability of the 13q is better than others 12q

I figured that was probably the case. I already ordered the 5 wire 1ft package because of all the good stuff I had heard.

1 other question. I plan on swapping out the 7.5 Ballistic stator for a 17.5 stator to run stock but I dont want to desolder every time I swap them so I was going to go with 4mm high efficiency/current bullet connectors. Is this okay, or is it that much better to solder the motor straight to the esc?

Soldering is always better, but i do know a few mod guys running the bullet connector, mostly the guys with Speed passion mods, they don't seem to be giving anything up. Go ahead and try it and just feel the connector after a run and as long as it is not hot (indicating a power loss) you should be ok

Thanks!
We've tested the wire with low turn mod motors in sedan, buggy etc. using 2S and have no reported drop off in power. I would think your experience will be the same. That said, 12 gauge with the same stranding will have the capacity to carry more current - the question is whether the extra weight (usually higher than the CG) is really neccessary.

There are lots of companies doing 12 gauge, Deans makes an excellent product, so I didn't think we needed to duplicate something already available.

New low profile, Silver Plated 4mm bullet male connectors provide lower resistance. Available in 18mm and 14mm lengths.

Hey Ralph - quick question...

when you measure your sensor wires and they are, say, 50mm, is it 50mm end-to-end, including plugs or 50mm between the plugs??

Trying to figure out what size to get to setup my TCS car

thanks

Kaybo
