I fixed the Ackerman after the shot. I meant to do it before, but I forgot. I could fix it in Photoshop, but it's not worth it.

Funny thing is, I raced it like that this past weekend, lol.

Regardless, your car looks stellar, very nice work.

Last night I bit the bullet and shortened my servo and esc lead wires, unsoldered, shortened, stripped, and re-soldered them to the circuit board... That will make your hands shake when you have a 200 dollar esc and a 1mm x 1mm window to tin with solder and if you burn the diode they put right next to it the thing is garbage. But the esc and servo still work, so I'm calling it a win.

Great pit tip for perfect ESC and servo lead wires: if you don't have a soldering iron with a super fine tip, take a piece of nice thick solid copper wire and wrap it around the tip, and cut it to the exact length you need. Now you can hit those tiny solder joints even with a big overpowered soldering gun like mine.

Here's my CRC Xti's latest wiring...came out pretty darn clean I would have preferred running the motor wires along the side link down low but the car didn't like it.

This is a bad idea. Your belt will flap around and smash your capacitor. Been there done that, lost a race because of it!

Pan car, in the trial and error fitting stage, I'm thinking this will be the layout, cap board behind the ESC (tricky to tuck in and loop the wires, with sensor cable running in-between), I want to ditch the power switch, but my test of jumpering the switch pins did not seem to power on the ESC...

Oh and battery will be pin towards the back I think...

No, it won't.

This isn't my first rodeo.

Which way you turn the battery will affect your weight distribution you know. The end with the connectors is significantly lighter.

It's looking like I'll face the pack pins front now anyway, due to ease of wiring, and I'm not sure what I'm going to have to do with the RX wire/plug now on the ESC, it sticks up a long way and hit the shell during the test fit, the newest of the Protoform bodies sits super low, and the CoreRC ESC sits quite high.

looks very nice, good job, but that motor has way to many turns....

(glances over shoulder and sees glares from the stock only ravers)

...to need a fan on the ESC.
