this is good,
im surprised some one hasnt made a copy of losi shock making tool the one that u can compare left to right.
i like the mi3 idea,
as far as lambo doors lol just by a civic and add a kit more fun
ground effects chassis i think thatd be banned pretty quick but be sweet.
oh tamiya have the ff02 or something front wheel drive electric as far as brake check out rc caraction issue where the check out skunk works or crf and the new orion crf 12 the show a trf ta04 with hydralic front breaks indepentant to.
id like to see a charger that does it all independednt discharge and charge up to 10 amp for both and of cause 35 amp flex discharge independant cell temps be awsome could match ur own stuff right now u need to buy an iic charger and ctx-d all worth about $300us crazy imo
pnematic (or how ever u spell it) tires for a tc would be great until u weighted em reckon thed be dearer than plastic/nylon wheelsbut i think nylon bead locks would be a hit with club racers cause u can reuse rims with out soaking them in acetone and u can change inserts with out buying new tires and rims
what ya think??

Sealed diffs sure are nice. If only T2 parts were not priced through the roof.

More options on harness wires for servos, transpoders and ESc's. I've seen some options on some servos and ESC's but going from 12" to 8" is still to long for some including myself . Unless these longer harnesses help prevent glitching, I don't understand why someone doesn't manufacture them shorter. They can state in installation manual if it reccomended to or not cut wires, give extra connection clips to cut wires if desired. Novak makes two interchangeable harness wires for the GTX (and probably others). Can't they make a wire at say, 3" instead of 11"? Servos and PT's could have the same style plug on them. You would have a option of how long of a harness wire to use. 10" wire is too long when the receiver is right next to the servo, PT, and ESC. Besides I've known some guys damage the transponder wire and now buy a new transponder or mutilate the one they have just to get inside to reconnect the damn wires. I would be p----- off if I break the wires on my PT. This is one thing I'd like to see.

Here

It fits on any motor. It clamps to the motor and can have two fans attached.
You can order them here.

Hope that helps,

I am lazy right now to find the website, but you can buy new gold plug ends for sevo, esc or PT and you would just need to cut the wires to your desired length and just put new plugs on the wires and reinstall them into the plastic end.

I have opened up my Servo and removed the wires completely and shortened the wires and resoldered, mainly cause I felt comfortable doing it. I would probably not do it to an ESC but cause I was lazy I just shortened that wire.

I will try to find the site and the crimping tool, so everyone can shorten the wire.
I talked with someone in the industry and to shorten the wire shouldn't have any effect on the opperation of the products.

Hope that helps...
Well when I fidn the site it will...
But there is a way BRO...

i'd like to see all esc's have the wire mount tab on the outside of the casing, i like my wires short, so if i can easily replace them, i don't have to worry about them being too short.

That shoudl solve all your requirements to shorten every connector. Just be sure not to make them too short or you will stuck with nothing to solder/extend if the time comes nessasary to sell or use that sevo/esc/pt in a different applications.
I.E. want to put the servo in a off road application from your TC...
I shortened my servo just because it was easy. The ESC & PT I just wrap the wire around a long screw driver and coil up the wire and they pretty much stay nice and clean.

-Shookie <><

But with the GTX good call. Make a three inch connector would be easy..and helpfull but on other ESC's I wouldn't as you can not add what you cut off...LOL

Shookie Thanks for the link. I didn't know they actually did sell crimping kits for servos. I already coil my cables but, it would be nice to have shorter wires. Also once you shorten a wire, you can always make an extension harness with this handy dandy crimping tool kit that you located to make life easier for poeple like me, thanks again.
