A couple pics of my wiring

With the wires going over the center drive shaft, can you easily remove the spur assemble and will it clear the body? I've found you get one or both those issues unless you go under the shaft like I did.

You just have to give just the right amount of slack and it's no issue to remove the slipper assembly. I run a fan under my front shaft so my wires have to go over the top.

This is with my old RS Pro and futaba Rx:


I have to look for pics with new equipment.

my version the wires run under the center shaft...I believe running the wires over would keep things a bit cooler to allow better circulation around motor

@incubus: I should dig up my smoking car video from Hot Rod hobbies. And you are totally right….having the wires sandwiched together like this could cause a short. Probably a good reason to use a square pack as you can have your pos/neg wires with a little more separation. I should probably shrink the ends that attach to the ESC as well….

It's a bit time consuming to get everything to wire up properly, I had to extend my capacitor wires and I think next time I re-do it I might try to run them between the receiver and ESC to keep them away from the spur. The real trick is to create a setup that is super easy to get in and out. It makes the car super easy to work on if you take the time up front.

Now that I can get my radio setup. What is a good starting setup for medium sized indoor hard pack? Here's a video (not mine) of the newest layout.

No not yet. I have to try and make time to get it all together. The electronics I mean. I use a cheap thunder ac6 from hobby parts. Works great though.

Just purchased a v4. It is a great buggy. I am having a problem getting small pinions to fit on the motor and mesh with the spur gear. I have an 87 pinion and I cannot put anything smaller then a 23 pinion on. Any ideas or suggestions? Any help would be great.

you should be able to go smaller, I think 18 is the smallest. What motor are you running?
