This is another 1/8 offroad car, the DXR8-E. I was low on wire, so I couldn't quite wire it as I would have liked:

You guys using sharpies to make your servo wires black, how do you get them THAT black? Mine always has runs in it, even with several coats, and you can still see traces of red and white.

I like to use automotive black vinyl dye. It comes in a spray can.Ijust spay a little into a small container, and paint it onto the wires. It sticks (dyes) vinyl wires really well. However it does not work so well on silicone wries.

I really cant believe no one is selling these already made up, and you just cut them to your desired length.
TQ wire does have all black wire with ends on it already. I would email them if you don't see it on the site. I have used TQ for many years and it's a great product.

Yes, we have them with either FUT or JR male and tinned ends in 180mm length. I also have a 300mm version (required for some buggies) with JR male and tinned ends that will be up on the site soon.

That looks nice! The only suggestion is to redo the motor wires. It looks like there a couple of kinks, which can hender correct operation of the motor/speed control.
