I'm using a floating servo mount from YoDog. Reflex Racing /RSD'S DCJ's, shock springs, pistons and bladders. For electronics, I'm using a LRP Flow Works pulling from a Reedy 6500 and pushing a Reedy Sonic Mach2. I use a Futaba BLS551servo for telekinesis type steering.

It's not a bad speed control for the price. However the throttle feel leaves a little to be desired. I've found cranking up the throttle expo on my radio masks this some what.
You'll also notice how long the capacitor bank is, standard. I decided to cut it in half and reconnect the pieces back to back.
Don't forget the program card if you decide to purchase.

Beat me to it Ralph!! lols
Yeah, built in booster appears to work well.

One other thing. I did away with the on/off switch.
I simply replaced the on/off switch lead with an old hard drive header pin jumper.

My ESC capacitor was servo taped towards the center of the chassis onto the ESC and fits perfectly between the ESC and battery.

I finally got around to correcting the ackerman in Photoshop:

Why wouldn't you just fix the problem on the car and take a new photo?

How long do you think it takes a photographer to go to the studio and set up for a shot like this and then post process? Probably a bit longer than five minutes don't you think?

If you were following the thread a couple of pages back, you would see that I had already corrected the issue on the car.

What? This wasn't a phone picture with a filter from instagram?

Those yellow bearing holders must be killing you.

Yes, I know, the two are very comparable.

Open the cases, use an iron with a small tip, and just enough heat to melt the solder, no more or ive heard you can damage components on the boards. my advice, take pics before you remove the old wires.

Also pre install everything, and measure the exact distance you need for your install. I did an install in my 12, very short ESC wire for my RS pro. Came out nice

Ensure your new solder joints are clean, no solder between joints. Thats about it. I used TQ black servo wires/plugs, found them to be fantastic.
