Or even some 20 gauge as pictured on this Bolink...

Anyone have some nice T3'11 wire jobs? Curious on seeing a Futaba receiver and Tekin RS.

the attention to detail is awesome. all the sway bar collars/ends at the same rotation. blue screws on blue parts, black on black, removing the superfluous 'ugly' parts (bodymounts), etc. i will say, though, that the old brushed setups were so much friendlier on the eyes.

if i ever get my next kit together, maybe i'll try to give this one a run for it.

dunno. i had a great time at the h/c this past weekend, but it hasn't flipped a switch for me, yet. i got a new kit that i haven't even cracked the seals on the box of, if that tells you much about my ambition at the moment. i do love me a good build, though.

Need to order some futaba plugs to shorten up the tekin. Transponder is on there as now, wires blacked out, might shorten the wires as well.

Which kit brah ? No more sedan for me since I've come back...sold everything regarding sedans and run pan car only (my first love). For the allotted time given me, sedan just doesn't fit.
Lemme stay on track though....it will be nice to see your next ride on here

That receiver is fairly larger and it looks like you have decent space. Cutting off the right side tabs of the servo would definitely add a lot of real estate to that chassis.

I thought about as well on my xray. then what you use to secure the servo then? Also you have the wires coming out of the servo on that side.

You use the post on the left side, and then a large patch of servo tape under the servo to hold the rest.
