Well lets see now I think I got most of them. I tried to only include brushless systems only and for some reason I didn't include the 18th scale cars either . But there are a few of them that are very very nicely done.
as for a winner it is going to be difficult to beat the Stormer out. I've been looking at layouts and wires, especially untwisted ones and stealthed out systems. Solder joints and wire ends are a factor too. The purple "Zen" car is awesome for instance. But the nicest ones I believe are at the top of this list.....

I try to keep it clean and simple. Both on the BMI and the T009.

Not minty mint like some of the car's on here, but this will actually get raced




Also one of our lipo plates which helps the car keep the weight on the limit and as low down as possible, without affecting the flex.

The servo and transponder wires have been modified. The esc wire has not been modified. The sensor cable is 70mm in length.



This one is still my favorite so far

Its nice but look closely..
The wires got too hot durring soldering and wicked up extra solder making then stiff and non conforming. The solder joints themselves are good but not consistant and again... too much solder.
The wires are not quite dressed up nicely and don't flow smoothly over the model.
Look again more closely at all the other candidates. Radio wires are all hidden or made to look nice . Some guys have a few hours into wiring alone.

I did see those results, the belt flipping must of worked. Can't believe it didn't make the JSA list though. Congrats on the Nats finish.

Here is a picture from my previous car. Building up a different car so I will have a fresh canvas to work with. Sorry about the bad angle.

I can't get myself to criticize anyone else's soldering job as I struggle myself and you can say I'm partial to TC5s

I see what your saying, I just really like his layout.
