the second two sets of cable you sent (30-40 amp charging) has been working great and to heat problems...

thanks you sir Mike

question for 17.5 touring car blinky would you recommend the 13 gauge or the 14gauge?

I would use the larger (13) gauge for TC.

Hi. I run a t5m with a tekin rsx and redline gen3 6.5t...with ALOT of timing as well as boost/turbo. I use protek silicon graphene lihv 100c 2s 3600mah shorty batteries. Using 4mm bullets (from tq) but will be upgrading to 5mm soon when i upgrade to the 6100mah proteks. I started with the tekin 12ga and that would be pretty warm after a run. Then I tried the hobbystar 12ga because they actually had it in the colors I wanted. This is not only heavier (thick insulation) but it also heats up. I'm considering tq wire now. I looked at the 13ga as well as the 10ga. I noticed the 13ga has a higher strand count than the 10ga...I assume the 13 ga is using finer strands. Which would be the better option? Which would carry the most current and have the lowest resistance while also remaining pretty flexible? I'm getting tired of switching wire in my search for something that doesn't heat up. 10ga is the larger I can use with my esc/motor due to the size of the posts/tabs. Thanks in advance.

The heat in your wires may be coming from the motor and/or ESC as it acts as a heat sink. If your motor and ESC is getting hot, the wires will as well.

However, if you're interested in going heavier...our new 11 gauge may be what you want to use. The TQ11 has more strands, a slightly larger conductor than our 10 gauge and it's quite a bit more flexible. The silicone insulation is also much thinner making it the same overall OD, or smaller, than most 12 gauge wires.

Thank you for the reply. I'll look into the TQ11. I wouldn't necessarily say my motor and esc is getting hot. Warm yes. On the occasion that I do speed runs I'm running back and forth down the street at basically full throttle for the whole pack about 5-7 minutes. My motor comes off at about 140-145 and my esc about 130-140 with the fan set to auto on my esc...no fan on my motor. This is with the body on and 85-90 degree outside air temp. On race/track days my motor and esc usually come off a little cooler.

Those temps are 100% fine for ESC/motor.
