Hi Graham,

Great looking car.
Can you please post a few more clear photos of your chassis, specialy from the top. I want to see the MI4 with the motor in its most inward position.
Is this open mod?

regards,
John

Hi John
The distance from the exact center lie of the chassis to the very end of the endbell is 62.5mm, is this what u mean?
Nope This is running a GM 10.5 on a Speed Passion Pro-Stock 2.1

I reinstalled my electronics today. Replaced every wire I could with black silicon wire and cut everything I could to length. It was clean before but looks a lot better now. I should have done a before and after shot. There's still things that could be changed

Gotta couple questions...

I've noticed some cars on here with all black servo wires. Did you guys buy that wire or is it painted?
Also, I've seen some nice wire loom like what's on the Mi4's sensor wire below.
Where can I buy that??

Thanks

I agree, I changed some things last night on the car. I'll have to post a new pic.

thanks for heads up on blacking out my servo wires.

What do you guys think about painting the motor.....

ok I did some more work on my car so its not so colorful I painted my
servo wires. Put a lexan cover over the lipo that I got from Maxamps a long time ago. I also covered the red on the 9100s servo with carbon fiber vinyl sticker. I went ahead and painted my motor with some semi-gloss high temp paint.

I'm thinking about putting some black Jaco's on it......
