Don't listen to them. With a body on no one will know the difference. You're golden as long as the body fits over the wires and they don't hang out the bottom.

But then you won't see any of my cars on this thread. I hang out on the LED lighting section under the "The More Lights the Better" trying to cram this into my 1/12th scale http://www.nitrorcx.com/41p-led-lightkit.html

If it was me, I'd look at tidying up the solder joints as well.

Don't forget to put a little 1/8" dowel rod on the outside of your body, so the birds will have something to perch on.

I noticed in your blog you have a really nice looking old 4wd buggy, the MR4 BC Special. Very nice job.

Very nice John, as usual... Just one detail you can try to fix: I do ahve th same configuration on my A700, and I decide to change the side of the servo the wires are coming from... Quite easy, 4 screws, 2 minutes soldering, reverse the servo plate and that's it! So no more servo wire visible...

Where can I get those front body post washer thingies. Those are sweet and would be better than the cheap plastic ones.

Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. Neat and simple. Everything is where you need it to be at reach.

However, I think it's time to talk to someone about that carbon fiber addiction you have. I think there are help groups. I want you to know that it will be OK. We can help you!!!!

Just kidding. Someday, my work bench will look like that.

The front ones. Do you have a part number or what they are called. I tried checking out their site and could not find them.
