Default Clean electronics installation (electric cars)

Hi guys,

I'm wondering how you install your electronics. I think I did quiet a good job myself, but I'm also interested in the way you installed your electric equipment.

Some picture to illustrate your clean installation will be very much appreciated! I will make some pictures of my car this weekend.

Gr,
Mike

I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out.Takes a bit of planning sometimes.I like to leave the motor wires just a little long so you can cut the ends off and start clean every now and then after they have been soldered on too many times.

A good soldering iron is the key to a neat installation so don't go cheap on one.

What sort of car is that Drolds?

It's an old Traxxas SRT that has been modified quite a bit for dirt oval.

For me I try to run as little extra wire as possible to any of my connections. Since I run 4wd buggy, space can be a premium. That is one of the reasons I went to powerpoles over deans, don't need all the extra wire going to the connector , just enough to each of the powerpole connectors. Hardwire would be ideal but I don't have the time for that.

Dryfit all your stuff before you do any cutting and or soldering! Keep the ESC and recievier exactly accross from eachother to keep the balance. Run the ESC to receiver connection wire under the battery.

I'll see if I can't post a pic later today....
