Yea, I thought about that. Turns out, I suppose, the idea is to show off a bit and help people out. Who knew?

I'd love to learn a new trick or two.

discussion on technique is good

like this handy tip i've come across in my wanderings around with a soldering iron..

brushless sensor leads are a good source for ESC/servo leads - each sensor lead had 6 wires all joined, just split this into 2 pieces of 3 and voila! you've now got black servo and ESC leads (just needs to have connectors attached)

Bob, how do you find time to run a business and spend that much time assembling a car to that level? Or do you make the guys at the shop do that for you? Oh, and did you do the paint job as well? Very impressive!

I am surrounded by talented and dedicated people. There are a few people here that could come close... Mostly, when I'm doing it, they say things like "seriously, you're still working on the reciever...?" I think it takes about 20 hours to do wire job like that. To do the same car a second time, 3-4 hours. I don't get to play like that very often though.

I talked to Schumacher today, some new Speedpassion stuff in the works. I'm gonna do an all Speedpassion build on an mi3.5 here in about 3 weeks. that'll be a cool one.

I've done some concours winning paintjobs... that ain't one of them. I have trouble finding that kind of time. I had 6 bodys painted by this guy. http://www.rcbodypaint.com/ I think he retired from the paint game. David Marmand, I think was the fella, he's in France somewhere. One of the few painter guys that could set a date, and hit it.

I can put connectors on myself, that's easy with the right tools. I found a good deal on a Hakko FX-951 iron for $220, so I think it's time to switch over to one of those to make these projects easier as well.
I remember Hitec having a fatty roll of all black 3 wire servo lead. I don't exactly remember the number off hand, but it might be something to look into.

Here's my first try at wiring an electric car. Maybe there's a way to make it a bit cleaner, but I thought it was pretty decent.

First i would like to say very nice installs guy's. All you touring car guy's what are doing with all the extra sensored wire from your brushless motors? Is it possible to shorten the wire (novak 13.5)? It's hard to tell with all those nice hidden clean wires.

It IS possible, but not worth it

I just put the wires in between the motor and ESC. Get them bunched up (nicely so they fit) And put some shrink over them.
