    antenna

    my antenna keeps on ripping, can i use any thin wire to replace it?

    i just had to solder it back together after sliding on the top of my car for like 10 feet, love going fast, but at high speeds it costs you....

    If it's the old am radio, yes just make sure it's the right length. If it's the newer 2.4, measure the exposed sliver wire on the tip of the piece that broke off and strip off the insulation on the remaining wire to the same length.

    Yes.

    Hobby shops usually have antenna wire on hand. Measure to length.

    How are you ripping the wire out? If its that bad, run the wire under the lid.
