Looking through this thread inspired me to try my hand at making the wiring in my car neater. I ended up doing a couple firsts for me. One being the soldering on a circuit board and the other was opening a servo/esc case. I got a couple more ideas to finish up, but here is the wiring on my tc6 90% finished.

Pretty nice. Maybe if you want try putting the receiver in between the servo and speed control on it's side

Otherwise looks good

I wish I had brand new everything, for every car I ever put together. But I usually move electronics around on a regular basis. This is a 12th wiring job. Must have been rocking out to some Stryper in my head or something, went yellow and black mostly

I have never ever ever ever had a speedo run over 125deg F. Even while running a DESC410r and a 6.5 with heat shrink. If you burn up a Tekin RS it's not cause you heat shrunk the posts. More so something shorted out a post or two ( cap-battery-motor ) wires and hi current melted the plastics. Surface mount components would normaly have a heat sink yes but Tekin is a sweet and small package. I have RS in ALL my tenth cars and not once ( knock on wood ) have I ever ever ever had one issue with any one of them. Except for having an Allen wrench accidentally dropped on the exposed wire ends while plugged in. Safety first... Been there , done that.
This statement has no bearing to an Rx8 that seems to gave a mind of its own.

Seemed to work great. I only ran it one day so far, no issues.

Great job!!! (but I think one of the shrink tubes is .20mm longer than the other two. Better get that fixed. )
They're more fun to wire up than anything. I really don't like wrenching or driving them very much.
