looks great! and you'll have the benefit of being able to quickly re-use your gear in other cars, should you need to. a lot of these installs are custom to the chassis.

the last few have all been well done. i still love this tread, some 3 years later ..

Alligator clips all day, the plug on the left of the car is easy to take in and out though.

Cover the number on the motor, the Europeans will become antsy when they see such a large digit.

I'm not new to RCTech. I'm following this thread since a long time and I have to admit that I love it. People are spending a lot of time to make amazing electronic setups. Here is my first attempt at it
I really love this new 3 weeks old car

Yes. They work just fine, same dimensions on the crimp jaws as the "hobby" brand ones.

Those are the crimpers I have, I got mine from horizon. I've never used another brand. I'd say if there is another option that makes the job easier go for it.

These are good crimpers imo. Just takes a little practice.

Hell I think crimping anything this small takes practice. no matter what tool you have.
