16 gauge provides enough power and keeps the pod from tweaking.

Default Losi JRXS Type R

This was done by Pete in Palm Bay Florida. I still need to cut the tie straps used to secure the wires. I did the dremel work myself.

Does having the top deck hacked to death like that really give any benefit? What Lipo are you using the Intellect 4400 shorty lipo pack?

TQ wire order arrived.... so did BlackOutRevo's trick with the servo wire

Needs a bit of wire refinement (both the servo and ESC wires are a little too long), and I'm still not happy with the motor wires, but can't figure out a way round that!

Turn your esc 90*, motor wire terminals closest to top deck. Will look much neater

Some people just can't keep their negativity to them selves! Top deck is still functional and yes it is a shorty lipo 4400mah 50c battery.

Masterplan you assume to think I am being negative. I have a Type R that I want to race on asphalt its never hit the track I have seen top decks cut up like that and I was asking if it being hacked up cause I have seen them much worse than you if there was any benefit to it. Your making it bigger than it needs to be.
