    Additional Information

    If you're planning to replace your car's motor or guide, don't overlook the motor lead wires! The 22 AWG wire we offer is perfect for scratch builders or to replace the cheap, stiff wire which comes with many 1/32 RTR cars. Designed specifically for robotic applications where the wire is under constant flexing, this wire is ideal for 1/32 slot car motor lead wires which also undergo constant flexing due to guide movement. Unlike "hook-up" wire which generally has a low strand count (typically 7 - 19 strands) and thick PVC insulation, this wire has a high strand count (60 individual tinned copper strands) and thin silicone insulation - both of these attributes contribute to its extraordinary flexibility and "limpness". The silicone insulation also holds up much better to soldering (high heat) than PVC insulation. Another important consideration is the outer diameter (o.d.) of the wire. If the motor lead wire is too thick, it can cause interference/binding on some cars between the chassis and body near the guide flag. The smaller wire OD helps eliminate interference and binding around the guide.
