So I have this dilemma. My ESC is fairly tall and the wires are fitted so that they stick straight up on their respective leads giving it a high profile. My body won't fit onto the chassis and I do not like stressing the leads with pressing the body onto the chassis. The heat sink doesn't clear at all so I cut a small hole in the side of the body to help it clear, then I painted and trimmed a piece of packaging plastic and fit over the hole with little vents to let air in. It looks cool but the wires still rub against the body, so I haven't even painted it yet because the paint will just rub off after a while.
So I have a couple of questions:
1. Are their are other bodies that I can fit onto my car? I was thinking of even using a body that will cover my shock towers because I am just getting back into the hobby and my ride spends most of my runs on its back.
Though I am getting better. I bit off more than I can chew with the motor I bought.
I still love it though.
2. Are there any kits that can raise my body posts by like 1/4"? (its all I need to get the body to seat without rubbing against the wires or ESC itself)
3. I also plan on getting the fan for my ESC and that will really raise the profile so how the hell do you RC10 fanatics out there get that body on the damn car without hassle?
I am using a Novak 8.5T XBR ESC/Brushless Motor.
Thanks for listening!
