I have been inspired!!! I know my car is not the right scale or type to be included in the On-Road section but I just had to share my progress. Some of the wires need fresh Sharpie or I may just route them behind the ESC.

I don't think it applies to the same applications as cat5 or up wiring, its a pretty short run, but you never know. The only thing that the twisted wire has going for it is it is a lot more flexible.

Default My PHOTON 17.5

Thanks for all the help in this forum on selecting the right wire crimpers and the link to the YOUTUBE video. I think it worked out pretty good for my first try. I will post my GEN XL in a couple days and my VTA Photon. I just bought a low watt iron so now I can shorten the leads to the ESC on/off switch.
Please anyother pointers.

Ok, here we go. It's my first attempt at doing this so be kind! lol. It's a Tc4 with a castle 5700. All carbon parts dyed black and electronics covered in carbon fiber. Wires were shortened and painted black.

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

Here's mine, I think once you start installing and building like this you always will.

It just seems to be the right way.
