Mine isn't anything really special. just had some extra sleeving and heatshrink from the fanjob on my pc. this is my first rc car. still need a stabilizer cap for the savox servo.

^^^technically you aren't supposed to put heat shrink around the solder post on the RS series speedos. They act as a a heat sink to cool the speedo. when covered up, they cannot dissipate heat.

Valk, I see... It wasn't that much work to fix it then, I suppose the hard bit is to get hold of the expandable wire you use

Electronic supply stores *not source ect* will stock expandable wire sleeving in a range of colors and sizes. Comes on rolls they cut to
Footage just like wire. You can also get it at computer modding stores like newegg.com ncix.com frozencpu.com ect.

I redid mine last night as i had some people upset at the bullet ends. Will post pic later. Hope i can find a cap for my rec.

This looks great, you only need to change the servo and ESC cables to black ones By the way, where do I by black servo cable?
