Finished rewiring my M05 I was not satisfied with the deans set up. Went with bullets it's much cleaner hands down.





Never going for any kind of plug type battery. Sticking with bullets from now on

Those cars have pretty anodizing, and just enough wire to do the job. Very well taken picture as well.

I've had people tell me my wiring and build looks nice and tidy but if I put my prettiest 1/12 car next to that... a kinder contest would be having your local homecoming queen try to topple Ms. Universe.

Thanks. Yeah, we make a Savox case core (reversible too) for the Savox 1250/12571350/1357 Spektrum A5040/H5010. You can mount on top of the chassis in forward or reversed location, or hang the servo flush to the bottom of the chassis.



Thanks for all the kind comments. Here is a close-up of the carbon fiber prep. The edges look and feel like a rounded bead of glass.

Those CF edges are stunning, would you tell us which glue/method you use? Mine tend to go white, and even when they don't they aren't transparent like that!

I used ZAP-A-GAP Medium on that build. Thin would be better though.
Sandpaper 220 through 1500.
Wash, then clean with rubbing alcohol.
CA the edges
Sandpaper 800 - 1500
clean with rubbing alcohol
CA the edges again
Repeat the last 3 steps as often as needed. It just keeps getting better. Eventually, your sandpaper will not get any black any more as it's just sanding the CA.
