My '79 Toyota had one.  You get used to it and not a problem.... oh... you mean on a controller?




Never mind. :boredom:

Steen, what gauge wire would you use to get the values in your post?

Hi John,

 

18 gauge wire is 0,021 ohm/meter, and that will do fine for most cars except for the most current-hungry wing-cars. Since one foot is 30 cm you will get 3 feet/m, which in this case is 0,007 ohm.

I would suggest that you start our with this, and if it is getting very hot with the cars your customers are using you should switch to #16 gauge. It it's not getting hot at all you can switch to #20, which is 0,027 ohm/meter, which will then give you 0,007 ohm for each 25 cm/10".
