Question for you seasoned B5M owners. I just bought a new B5M kit as my first offroad car and I'm done assembling it and installing the electronics.

My question is about the motor wires. The HW Justock ESC has long 14ga wires that will just reach the motor (D4 17.5) if I route it down the right side of the chassis. I see most guys route the motor wires up and over the battery. I would assume to keep the motor wires as short as possible. I was trying to keep the battery strap easy to remove and keep the COG down. Would there be a potential problem with the motor wires routed around the battery?

BTW I have read about 250+ pages of this thread before buying my car. There is alot of good info here.

Super annoying issue.
Nope, the blue light went dark and the remote just stopped working. It happened a couple of times. It taught me to handle my remotes gently. KO attributed it to the use of a lipo which boosted the voltage a bit.

well you could replace the wire with longer leads. IMO, it does not mater if you go over or around. some go around, some go over.

Maybe if your a weight balance freak. I didn't notice going over or around. Now that I have the tire situation figured out, am going to throw the pucks system back in the stock car. Should be interesting. If it sucks I have my backup B5.

yeah the size is just fine, ive had the car in 3 different chassis layout configurations, no problem with fit. its the tightest fit for the box stock configuration, but wasnt a problem at all.
