Bob Stormer = supreme hobbyist and super guy! What a cool and classy way to honor the memory of Mr. Hustings. If Mr H is watching from wherever his spirit is now, he probably got a real charge out of Bob's painted lexan tribute.

Here is my latest. Wanted to try out HK's mesh.

Not sure I'm a fan, was easy to use, and was a neat way to bundle the long servo wires without trimming/re soldering and is neater than cable ties. I think I'd prefer a simple couple of heat shrink loops though.

Hey DBM,

Look at stormer and A Main for some crimpers and new servo pins and shorten those wires to the receiver.

I know soldering on the boards makes a lot of people really apprehensive but cutting the wire shorter and crimping on new pins has always worked well for me for that clean appearance.

Crimpers

Pins and plugs

Here is my submission, this is only the second time I've wired up a car. I'm not a fan of the 'blacked out' look for my wiring, especially since its too easy to hook up a battery wrong if you're distracted and both wires are the same colour.

This is hopefully going to be my USGT car for this coming weekend if I have it ready in time.

I built and wired this car at the track for the Mile High Indoor Championships. my 13.5 car running the new, "el-cheapo" core 1s speedo (90 bucks). I put this thing into the show and ran 8th. I'll take it, no shame in that game.

and my mod car from the MHIC's. What I thougt was cool about this setup was the use of a Tekin RSX as opposed to a Hobbywing V3 or similar 1s unit. The RSX is lighter than the Hobbywing and has data logging, so why not give it a shot (I thought to myself). I liked how it worked. I ran a 6 turn in it and it was crazy fast. Finally ran a pile of boost in it, and it was NUTS... for about 3 minutes until I burned the leads off the motor... Ended up running the 6.0 turn in blinky. Was a solid decision, for my lack of mod skills.
