A few things I love do:S
1. Drill 2 holes in the chassis so the Servo BEC wire can run through the chassis to the RX. Make the 2nd hole a little larger, and run the PT wire through there too. I usually only make the hole big enough for the wire and take the plugs off to get them through, then put the plug back in.
2. SHRINK WRAP IS YOUR BEST FRIEND. You can use shrink wrap a few ways, but this is how I like to. I don't coil my wires, I rather like to keep them flat and tight running along an edge in the chassis. Take the extra length, fold it over and shrink the hole thing tight. Then (the best part), you can super glue the shrink to the chassis. Most likely, you wont have to remove the electronics until you need a new chassis, and the electronic wires won't be damaged, only the shrink wrap protecting them! This is the bomb!
3. For an off road car, run the motor wires through the "middle" triangle in the rear tower. This will keep them from inevitably being right above the positive battery lead. Then you have a clean shot to solder in the pack each time.
GTB only--It is highly suggested using a fan on the GTB. It will bring down temps by 50-80 deg F which is needless to say, HUGE.
1. Move you capacitor to the triangle behind the esc, and stand it up. There should be plenty of room under the body (I run a JConcepts Illuzion body and there is tons a space).
2. Move the ESC all the way back, same configuration you are in.
3. This is a suggestion, but understand it probably isn't suggested by the people at Novak... bend the switch, BEC and Fan plugs down to the chassis.
4. Mount a BLACK Novak fan upright on the chassis infront of the bent down plugs using "Shoe Goo" or "Automotive Goop". The bent down plugs with direct the air right into the heatsink. SUPERDIALED.
I'll try to take and post some pics when I have a chance.
Sorry, I don't have a camera with me right now.
