    Wires wont Solder

    I recently purchased a used 1/16 slash and when I went to use it one battery wire had come off the plug.

    No big deal I figure, I have soldered stuff before (been 10ish years though....)

    Long story short, I strip back some insulation and attempt to get some solder into the wires and just nothing. The wire is getting hot and I have to stop since I can feel it through the insulation but no solder is being picked up.

    Any tips/simple things I am missing?

    Try adding flux prior to soldering. Traxxas uses odd wire. In my opinion, seems like the strands are thicker and stiffer(Twss)

    And the biggest tip you've got. And don't buy those cheap hollow core tips, they lose their heat too fast.
