My Kyosho Lazer ZX-5 and Tamiya M-03M are my contribution for the thread. IMO both cars are pretty hard to package a clean install into. I didn't go too crazy with blacking out wires and hiding components, just kept it simple and easy to work on. The Lazer is missing the receiver.

The cars are both raced regularly.

I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. Comments and questions welcome.

Harnesses works wonders to clean up bundles of wires, like for the three wires going into brushless motors...

It's all about the true black wire. Or, if you speak of a servo wire, try a black paint pen.

I know I'm not revo, but what he did was use nail polish remover to remove the blue from the case, used rit dye to get the case black, and I anodized the heat sink.

Simple as that!
