As asc6000 said it's not much more to it then taking your time planning the layout and getting some 90 degree bullets, or as I did just make a slot for the cable to come out the side.
Reedy 4mm are my choice of bullets.

Except for these things it does help it look cleaner having all the other wiring up to par as well.
I've swapped out the servo and ESC wire for black TQ wire and rerouted the ESC wire out the opposite side of the ESC for shortest wire possible

Here's a shot from the opposite side:

Im curious if anyone has looked into other rims. I was looking to do 12mm kyosho hexes with kyosho rims. What is close in offset for those of us who prefer yellow rims? Durango yes but i hate the mustard yellow color they use and the quality of their rims

Sorry I forgot the B44 has smaller hex in the front, maybe this will help.

Default SEALANT ON THE SHOCK THREADS

Several of you mentioned using a black sealant (I think Losi) on the threads to prevent the leaking. Please post a link or a SKU number of the exact product you're using.

Thanks!

Here's Malin in qualifying #1

She lapped everyone by at least 1 round prior to her almost brand new Reedy 60C saddle packs deciding to call it a day
You can see her loosing speed coming on to the straightaway @4:13


+ YouTube Video

Default KUDOS to her!

I don't think she would mind that at all........as she just loves her Xray

She also runs Short Course and will start running 2WD buggy very soon as well as 1/8 E-buggy once the season gets going in March/April
