Go to page 693 I posted pics of my wiring with the sp v3 and futaba rx. Bulkier than the tekin and I got it in clean. I switched to tekin but have no pics. It's basically the same just cleaner.

Thanks, that's how I did mine I just didn't like the rx being hard to plug/unplug. I looked at mine again just now and I think I can get the RS PRO and rx to sit side by side. I am using the MX Sport RX and it is square but the M11X RX I have is rectangle and I think it will fit next to the esc. I am also going to open up the ESC and Servo and shorten the wires to make it look a little cleaner.

They will sit side by side with the tekin. I put my transponder under the slipper. That speed passion was a lot of stuff to fit in there.

There was a NIB Dex in the for sale section. Go Search it was a great deal too. I couldn't find one either so I purchased a clean used roller off ebay with a bunch of spares and it looks brand new .

The atomic carbon conversion is a molded tub. So it has more room and you don't use the stock side pods at all.

Here's how I did mine with an RS Pro and a Futaba receiver. Futaba receivers are a little big

Also, I am running a Gens Ace shorty pack.

Also, from what I've read is more durable than the b44.2 or the xb4, and I like gear diffs. It's like the best of the b44.2 and xb4 but with durability

Anyway, I have 2 questions
  1. Can you set the slipper like a 2wd 1/10 scale? Hold the wheels down hit the throttle and make sure the front wheels only raise 2-3 inches? Or should I just run the 8.5 mm distance as recommended in the manual?
  2. I run primarily at WCRC. I am starting with Jorn's 2012 Reedy race setup as a baseline. I will get to drive it tomorrow. Anyone try this exact setup yet? Is it good for normal human drivers? Only reason I ask is because the 2 hole/45wt front and the 3 hole/30 wt rear makes the damping seem really heavy (at least on the bench). I guess I will find out tomorrow.
Anyone?

I think those may be the longest battery wires I have ever seen.

Be aware that Jorn runs the small/standard bore shocks on his V3.
