godwinmt nailed it, that's the series I use, comes in colors and sizes.

Connectors I get here now, they're US based for me and ship fast.

Fuse holder I picked up here, they also have the connectors, so you can combine your order, but take a bit longer to get here,

Hey Jesse, they still have them, kind of pricey and don't break it in a race, all the force of an impact is transferred to the strut. I'm with Aaron, a big fan of helmet lights. The LED ones are super bright, last longer then HID and getting lighter all the time.

Working on the first iteration of a tower for the WRR. Still need to add in various switches/work on packaging/lightening, but it's getting there. Looking forward to seeing how light+rigid I'll be able to make it with a bit of FEA

Nice job on the design, if you have a decent FEA plugin use it, they're magic and can save a lot of time and grief.
