Not for the rain...just for the effect of clean wiring..I have done custom wiring jobs in the past but I wanted to figure out a way to create a clean wiring job which I didn't have to void the warranty on my esc so I made an "all-in-one" box. And the motor fan blows air over the motor and into the esc...if I have cooling problems ill just cut a couple vents...the esc is rated down to a 8.5T and I'm only running a 17.5T so it should be ok.

Yep a blue xray...I like xrays but don't like the orange so I got it custom anodized.

I think the box looks cool.... you could always just cut a square out at the front of it on top and mount a fan blowing into it so air is forced through. I'd guess that it would solve any heat issues you might have.

Looks pretty good, but it's incomplete and the solder looks terrible.

I love the servo and esc rewire, but i would eliminate the spaces between the components.

I'm looking to change mine to all black but keep the orange shocks, most people I called gave me some outrageously high price. Can you point me in the right direction?

I used MR painting to do mine. His website is here..
http://www.mr-painting.com

He quoted me $60 + return shipping. Turn around was a bit slow.. about 2-3+ weeks but other than that I was happy.
