Default 16AWG vs 13 AWG for 1/12

Hi,

Like your advise on TQ 16 AWG motor wire vs 13 AWG for 1/12 ? I am planning to use on 4.5T to 4T Mod motor. Which might be more suitable ?
My personal experience with another brand of 16 AWG wire is that it get hot when I use with a Trinity 4.5T motor.

For mod 1/12 u want 13g... just make sure it doesn't tweak Your pod so lay the wires over the pod and not in between carbon pieces.

Just wondering if sensor connectors are universal? I bought two TQ sensor cables and they don't seem to plug in properly or sit in my orion R10 speedo.

I tried another sensor cable from another brand and that fit fine....

They're universal. I have lots of drivers using my cables and that speedo...all the team Kyosho guys at my local track. Never had anyone mention that?

They seem to need a little mote pressure when installing (a good thing) than other manufacturers.

I've used the tq sensor wires with an r10 as well as an lrp flow. They have a snug(perfect) fit and have functioned 100%

I've been getting calls about balance wires for the new iCharger. We have a cable that can be used for 1S or 2S (using a charge adapter). So, if you're doing 1 cell, this cable is all you need #2202.1

We will have a complete solution for both 1S and 2S very soon with "swappable" sensing wires. Stay tuned.
