I am working on upgrading a Stryfe to a 3S Lipo battery. I have 16 guage wire (red/black), 2 Titan Chronus-X motors, and an extended battery door. I'm getting ready to order 1 Artifact Canted Metal Flywheel Cage along with Artifact Canted Metal Flywheels to go with them. This is my first electric blaster upgrade and I am wondering what parts from the original wiring I could use for the rev trigger and circuit?

Hobby grade stranded wire or primary wire, I hope? House wiring/solid core is too brittle for our use.

Dont. Use the Red cage/wheels or an OFP setup; canting has limited positive data behind it and definitely robs FPS.

If you are using a MOSFET setup, some of it, but the switches are supposed to be garbage so really you shouldnt.

If you arent, nothing. Youll need a new Omron/clone microswitch, a few online superstock stores carry them (Out Of Darts etsy last I checked, probably others). You can also find clones on ebay and maybe amazon.

I am using auto wire. These are the links to the flywheels & flywheel cage:

And then is there a specific microswitch i should use (I'm looking at the Out of Darts etsy)?

Dont use those cages, use this cage and appropriate wheels.

Oods switches are all fine, higher # is supposed to prevent burnout but when you look at them theyre all rated the same for DC. Ive heard of a couple switch burnouts, but Ive not had it happen and I think it may just be something that happens with heavy use or bum switches.
