I quite honestly thought that was a black and white photo until I saw the minor gold detail on the receiver, battery plug and colored out drives.

Sick looking as usual, very nice work, the setup wheel are very cool. I miss my A700 sometimes.

i take my servo wire out of the connector (carefully) and shorten the wire there by soldering the shortened wire to the end. and then re-installing it into the connector.

Try to run the motor wires beside your battery down low and loop them up to the top of the rear pod just under the damper tubes. And for the cap pack just switch over to the single (like the tekin).

two, GET THIS and then you'll need a bag of these, and now you have the tools required to shorten you servo leads WITHOUT soldering servo line on your servo or esc which requires a very gentle hand
Thanks guys. I used red because of all the red anodizing on this CRC, figured it would look better than it did.

The wires aren't binding, there is still some play there and the pod is at full droop. The car handled well on its maiden run yesterday. I will try sending the wires out from the bottom of the ESC and running them low and up to the motor, and I will use 18 AWG black.

I can solder servo leads so I think I'll just try shortening them myself first.

Your 1/8 scale might be cleaner without that dean's in there.

Here's a pic of my Top Photon. I took about 5 pics but this is the only one I could upload.
I'm pretty happy with it. I might try to post a couple more shots.

Inspire us.  Show me your BEST, CLEANEST electronics installation pics.-img_0886.jpg

Hi Ethan,
Thanks for the comments. Color was a little distorted due to low lighting. I got a chance and got a better shot few weeks later. Here it goes:
