You have 2x AA battery holders for an aux battery, AND a 10A UBEC???

Why not get something like the BEC Pro and run everything off the same thing? Would save quite a bit of weight I'm sure and allow you to clean that up a bit.
And just curious but looked like it said 3x lipos? How is that working out?

This pic is from about 1-2 years ago and the BEC pro wasn't out. I would have used it if I could. I have one AA aux battery and one Ni-cd aux battery. I would have used two Ni-cd aux packs but I only had one.

The setup gets complicated:

1) The Data Logger needs 5v input
2) The receiver needs 6v input.
3) No BEC on the HV-110 speed control.

To get 5v, I have the Ni-CD battery wired to the BEC (set at 5v) then into the data recorder.

Yes it used three 4s li-pos in series for a total of 12s. The power setup worked fine, but I was having problems with the pinion/spur gear.

I got around 100 mph during testing. But when I went to the ISC competition I only hit 86mph. I was really disappointed. I had too many problems with my gears always getting chewed up. Its a very high voltage setup designed to be run many many times without overheating. I could do 30-40 speed runs and the motor wouldn't even really get warm.

Holy Smokes!! I've never seen so many Not-clean wired cars in a clean wire thread. Jesus! There was only one or two that was even clean.

My blitz came out pretty nice before I sold it. You all gotta go check out the clean wire thread in the on road section. Get some ideas!

This thread didn't say anything about clean wires! lol.

If I had more time I would clean it up. If it doesn't affect my cars performance, I don't really waste time with it.
