You can tell the passion for r/c some guys have here with the time they've put into their cars.

Just don't put them into the boards guys...

Insert top brand Chassis /ESC / Motor etc etc here $$$$$.....

That horrible feeling of seeing a brand new chassis/shell/whatever going into the board... Priceless.

For everything else, there's Mastercard

I personally don't crimp just solder the little connector on and clip it into the plastic housing.

I use these:
http://www.nexusracing.com/product_i...oducts_id=1657
Those are out of stock but they have the futaba ones in stock with the little tab.

This was hard, because all the wires were all full length, so you had to find a place to hide them.

thanks, and awesome stuff. I've got a new speedie and motor on the way and will post my attempt once complete
Just about done. I need to get a marker to black out the wires, and I need to mod my transponder wires and mount it. Can someone tell me how the transponder case comes apart?

You're better off with black shrink around the PT wires. The case gets destroyed when you take it apart because AMB fills it with epoxy then closes it up so it's all glued together in there.

Thanks for the advise, I know what you mean. I just got lazy to put my
black shrink wrap over the PT wires!

Wow thats very nice. You have so much space to play with tho. The electrics on mine are neet but are very close together. What reciever is that ? I have a novak 13.5 and the sensor lead snapped at the speedo end. SOO i had to cut the sensor wire and solder another bit of sensor lead to it. It was very time consuming but i did it. And i shortened it at the same time. Just gets rid of some of that unwanted sensor lead.

Is that the sticky tape showing in between the esc and reciever.
