Loose wire on the reciever plug hardly seems like a big enough issue for this thread to exist.

Whatevs. I hope that sponsored driver showed you how to fix the problem so you know what to do for next time...
Or I can send you a bunch of servo connectors and you can practice fixing them so you can do it yourself...Thats kind of a common problem with servo connectors..they wear out after a while...as does everything...
yes if you wanna send me some id love the gesture and the practice of becoming a person that could assist others

The connector end is subject to a lot of wear and tear and things like this can easily happen. I've seen racers tug on the wire lead and not the plastic connector and cause even worse damage. Since you need to make repairs, why not buy the proper crimper and a package of the connector pins and effect repairs. You could even shorten the lead to make a cleaner install. Nothing uglier than a couple of long leads zip tied and stuffed in the chassis.

I resemble that remark! Actually my DUPONT crimper kit came in just a few weeks ago to fix a servo lead that was damaged.

I know it sucks to have to buy a tool to fix this but every RC (and regular) tool I own has saved me money in the long run (except for that 50 dollar parts tray!)

Crimping Tool I bought and lifetime supply of connectors! 20 bucks total. FYI I linked the JR/HITEC universal connectors. There is a futaba version (I saw you used a futaba receiver but the universals should work just fine).

question for ya.. i see futaba server plugs with wire it seems I could buy one of those get a piece of shrink wrap and solder or tie the wires together (assuming solder is better)
this seems like it would be a hell of a lot faster and easier than crimping small wires into a tiny tube like shape. what do you think about this alternative?

Personally go with the crimping tool and for the amount of pins you can practice a lot and still have tons of them, the shrink wrap is fine but is not that clean and you need to know how to solder, but crimping is easier than you think and then you can help locals at your track out fixing their broke stuff.

lastly if you are buying new electronics and having a wire issue after running the brand new vehicle for a lap or two then by all means you are either very unlucky or need to look for a better seller of electronics I raced rc back in brushed days and never encountered any issues with wires from new products never the less this isnít new and you came in here and started making it seem that new products have issues lol who does that. Man o man again the time people waste on others justifying peopleís wrongful actions is Laughable
I race with Troubles Dad, he is probably one of the best people to have at your track, always willing to help, etc.

As for having items having issue when new, I have seen this back in the brushed days up to today. Things happen. Recently I helped a buddy with a motor that ran hot always right out of the box for no reason. Found the issue, bearing wasn't seated all the way in the can from the factory, fixed, motor runs great now.

As for what you ran into assuming I am reading and seeing the issue correctly, I can see a situation where the esc actually worked, the seller went to package it up and pulled the plug funny and then the wire had the issue you see. Me personally as a seller I would have worked with getting that situated with you, and in general I video all my electronics working prior to sale.
