Also, I know this was talked about around here somewhere, but how about an external BEC or just a novak glich buster. I'm using the speckrem 3100 DSM2. I like the CC programmable BEC but I don't have the castle link and I'm not buying it just for that. So whats everyone using.....Ryan, can you help?
I'm using a JR DS8717

Torque: 196 oz/in @ 6V

I was actually thinking about making up a lexan shield to deflect junk away from the Reciever mounted on the side of the servo.

I'll definately be keeping the Reciever up from to keep the wiring neat as everything else is mounted up front.

Hmm strange layout. Im not a fan of just using double sided tape, for some reason it always ends up popping off. Shame there is no way to use one of the RC squid mounts or Castles Mamba Monster mount to screw it into the chassis without drilling into it....

I also kinda wish the battery was upfront and the ESC was in the back near the motor. Why do they want such long power wires?

Also, where are you sticking the RX?

3m tape works really good, me and friends have used it on REAL cars etc. and it takes a lot of force to take it off, I really doubt some bumps and jumps will phase it

Link to this product?

What i like about screwing down esc is that i can remove them without having to rip up tape.

The clear redish servo tape that is rubbery works well and what is nice is that it peals off easy. I dont like sticky residue =P

welll buy a 1.0 the esc is at the back and battery up front...
I agree with dbl sided tape it never seems to stick... I use shoo goo it is very reliable.
The motor and esc change is to add rear weight and handle better at the expense of longer motor wires

I figured it was for a weight change, but I wasnt sure.

I prefer shoo goo for sticking down heavy ESC's in this truck. Double sided tape has always failed me - especially on big 1/8 scale tracks where the truck is landing hard. Not a question of if - its a question of when. Shoe Goo won't let go until you want it to.
