Someone school me on wire tucking and hiding. Can't come up with anything other than this to hide wires and keep everything nice and tidy. Obviously I need to go with black wire ties but its all I had for the time being.

One more version. Very similar. But Grigz, you might want to try turning your motor to the side and move your transponder. Mine is in the front under the steering rack.

Here is mine. Not a lot of options with the shorty config. I do turn the motor tabs off center just like my 1/8 scale.

Thanks Stealth. That was really useful info. I thought the green slime would do that. Will try it out

hahaha you will get yours soon enough! My advise is to back order it with one of the big shops, that way if your local shops don't get one then you will have a good chance of getting one still.

Also, when you do get it you should check out that carbon fiber prep link I posted. I used that method on my chassis and it was crazy easy and the result was awesome! I didn't do the wet sanding part of it but it didn't really look like it needed it.

Just touch up those white tie wraps with black permanent marker. I've got a similar setup, but with the small RS Pro ESC I was able to fit it further inside, with a 2 bank cap on the outside and the transponder on top of it.
