if you take out those three screws and rotate that piece so that it is aligned like it is in that pic, your solder tabs will face up, like this (for the anal retentive and OCD'ers, yes, it's not a great solder job, but my buggy is a rocket, and now that i'm looking at it, i'll probably re-do it):

This would be no bueno

Even with a disclaimer, people just can't help themselves.

Once I saw the picture up close I debated about whether to post the pics because I knew the wise guys would flock to it like flies on shite. I ended up saying F-it. If I can help the guy I'll deal with those with no impulse control.

My only regret is that my solder job will only be seen by AE guys. Losi, Kyosho, HB, and Tamiya finger pointers and know it alls are missing out. Maybe the pic should be ripped from this thread and be posted as its own thread in all electric forums as an example of how not to solder.

There is literally NO reason a ball cup should ever be popped off on a B5M.

Use a 2mm wrench on the ballstud.

Puck? Probably went a bit overboard with the grease. On my first set I didn't use any grease and they got hammered quick. Grease over compensation this time, but they're holding up much better.

Fan wiring? Guilty. Duct tape? If you don't have it somewhere on your ride, you're doing it wrong.

You really want your mind blown? Ask me to post a pic of the rats nest of a wiring job.

for sure. that dirt on the pucks? adds rotational mass. easily costs me 2 tenths. the 4 mil by 10 mil piece of gorilla tape? not only does it add weight, but it's off to the side, throwing off the left/right balance. there's another 2 tenths. aesthetically unpleasing solder job? at least a 20% loss in power. that's a 1/2 second. that's darned near a full second off of each lap, not including the crashes that the above transgressions undoubtedly induce. if i just take care of those simple things, and maybe change my name to be a tool, i might be able to make the a in club races like you do.
