Default wiring

Yes i have tried using the black sharpie markers and they are ok but they seem to give a weird shade of black to the wires and it is difficult to get in the tight gaps with a marker.

The way i did mine was to mask of the whole servo/esc and spray the servo wires with matt black spray paint worked a treat !! See my car at the pottom of previous page.

It looks like a Team Laje esc, not sure if they are actually available yet. Their website mentions a "Dominion Alpha" speed control but it is not otherwise listed

Default Shortening ESC and Servo Wires

Are you guys mainly cutting and recrimping your servo wires or unsoldering them from the PCB and doing it that way?

thanks, and awesome stuff. I've got a new speedie and motor on the way and will post my attempt once complete

I do both, depending on how up to the job I feel LOL. Crimping is alot easier

Do you actually crimp or solder the post onto the wire?

Ive tried to use a crimper but unless you have a really nice crimping tool the connections will be compromised. First of all the wire needs to be stripped the correct length and the insulator needs to be crimped into the back of the connector itself . Otherwise the wires will pull right out . The Tools offeres at the hobby store are not very good for this at all. They just kinda go thru the motions . If you really want to do this, I highly recomend (carefully) soldering them as well.
