What about using the individual sub-C cell shrink tubing over all three wires/tabs? I think that's what MaxRain meant using.

or you could cover each wire individually and the ends where you solder the wire to. I think you should be able to find the right size of heat shrink at any electrical store, even home depot.

I need to redo my wiring anyways so I won't overlook it this time and use heat shrink tubing over each terminal.

Default tekin

After reading ideas, here is how I mounted the tekin RS..

Still have to balance the chassis, and possibly add some weight. Not sure how much, but this what I have done thus far. I am also thinking of adding heat shrink on the B, A, wires. I may also redo the C wire to match B and A

Do you think the wires will interfere with the belt?

When you push down on the belt does it touch the wires?

It all looks good as long as the front belt has enough tension. I would be worried about not having any heatsink/fan combo on that motor, especially with a Tekin hooked into it.

Do you know the FDR range for the track or tracks you will be running? Also, will you be on foam or rubber?

I have the same combo and my local track suggests an FDR of 3.5-3.7, regardless temp checks are needed.

Yes, I use TP also. Pigtails have a little more room to work with
