why are you curling your servo wires rather than just shortening? planning on using it somewhere else?

I've shortened my wires before. It was alot of work. I just stick with wrapping them up now and zip tie them. Curling them looks better though.

the curling is also "Much More Professional." I think it slightly reduces glitching

Well,
Just thought that I would introduce myself in this thread. My name is Jack, and I race stadium trucks and touring cars. I just started racing my T4, and its been going real well.
In response to the statement about the graphite chassis being too stiff and twitchy....I definately agree with that. It seems to jump a little weird. I can't explain it exactly, but I am trying to mess around with shock oils and what not to correct it. I got third place at socal last time I raced, maybe it could have been first if I didn't have a twitchy truck problem.
Anyhow here is a picture of my truck,

Just a side note....I don't race with those tires obviously.
I am running a ko servo. lrp qc2, orion core stock, full graphite, pretty much factory team truck, with fukuyama batteries.

The qc2 is an excellent speedo. It is real light and super blue! However, I fried it because of some stupid wiring mistake late one night.
Its working now....LRP customer service hooked me up with a new one no questions asked.
I am not sure if the reactive frequency software is good for offroad because sometimes it feels like I am getting more power at the wrong times or conversely, less power when I need it.
All in all, great purchase. My only other gripe about it is the blue case is beautiful but it chips and flakes so easily. You need to really baby the thing.
Here is a pic of it, on my xray m18.

It's amazing how fast they fry and how bad they smell. I just fried the original quantum the other day. I still have to send it in. I'm not going to work on my electrics late at night anymore.

I hear you there....once you fry an ESC, you never forget the smell. In retrospect, it is kind of useful to make that mistake because then you can easily recognize a future problem by the smell of burnt wires.
My quantum totally freaked out during my first race. The speed control was mysteriously stuck on full throttle. I watched in horror as the truck hit the wall at full blast. Luckily, nothing broke, but there was an orange, brownish goop leaking out of the ESC. Fried....I think so.
Luckily, when I took it over to AE, they were able to fix it free of charge. Since then, I have been extremely careful with these expensive speedos.
