I had the same problem with the diff springs. Was missing two bulkheads too. Didnt notice the diff springs at first. Horizon did fix the bulkhead issue. Packager #38 had a brain fart the day he packaged my parts

I don't have any pics, and my car is in peices now.

Basically, here's the rundown...


The speedcontrol (xcelorin) is on the driver's side, servo taped to both the bottom deck as the well the first top deck standoff. The speedcontrol is on it's side leaving the motor and batt. wires on the rear side of the car. The capacitor is directly by and behind the motor sensor cables as well as the power wires, mounted stood up as if it where a can of soda. The receiver lead is routed above the battery under the top deck. The receiver is on the passenger side (spektrum pro HRS for futaba) mounted flat as if it normally would be mounted, however, the ports are facing the inside of the vehicle for a easier and tidier lead setup. It is mounted up next to the standoff but only taped on the side touching the chassis. The transponder is under the front diff. The battery wires (bullet-style connecters) are cut at about equal length, the negitive wire is placed under the belt and does not have the ability to reach the positive terminal, the positive wire reaches over the belt to the positive terminal.

Hope this helps? lol...

Not bad, i'd shorten the motor wires ALOT and get rid of the mile long sensor wire (150-175mm should work fine), and you probably won't be able to fit the batt. leads under the top deck wit a pack it, also, you may be able to run the servo lead behind the servo between the bottom of it and the bulkead and between the side of it and the arm mount, it keeps alot of it out of veiw, but i don't know about your servo size (i run a jr 9000s)

yeah, but so is your speedo and cap.

I've never had an issue with the wires on the side. EVER. even when running brushed a couple years ago. I broke the sh!t outta my speed control fan though the first time i got t-boned.

If you want to keep them that long, you might as well move the speed control to the passenger side.

its not about the length if i would run them the other way like mark suggested they hang off the end of the chassis and if i got hit i dont think that would turn out to good -------
