We run aluminum screws all the time. Sometimes I'll use titanium for the right bulkhead. The heat can sometimes cause the aluminum screws to get really hard to take out.

The transponder is in front of the Rx battery.

New favorite thread! Love clean wiring and being sneaky. When doing the black out, are you guys cracking the cases of the servo and esc then re-soldering from the inside? Or, how are you doing it? This thread has given me a lot of inspiration to step my game up. Will be posting pictures soon!

Thanks

Thanks for the comments. I really enjoyed putting this car together. I really need to upgrade my camera. The car looks even better in person.
