Default wiring help?

how can you make your car look cleaner? with wires and everything. were do yall run wires on your car to keep them from being as visible and in the way? i dont want my car to have spaghetti all over it.

Some shorten their wires with crimping gear. Lots use black shrink wrap to bundle the wire together.
Its really just up to you how you want it to look, Thats why they sell different colored wire. Be creative and take a look at other peoples cars the next time out at the track.

Keep things as short as possible. Be strategic routing wires. Zip ties, shrink wrap, and the little loops with a sticky side things all help keep wires under control. For me the most challenging part of a new ride is planning a clean, yet functional installation.

i want it clean. im thinking of routing all my wires under the upper deck. all my spedo and servo wires atleast. im not sure what to do with my motor wires. how can you get them attatched to the bottom of the upper deck and not have something visible on the top?

Let's not forget about functionality. If you run the wires like that is it going to be a bear changing motors? electronics? What about binding and tweaking the chassis?

stuff you need to have a neat wiring are

shrink wrap.for the wires.
double sided taped for your electronics
zip ties(the small ones dont know whats the measurement)

and your creative mind.

thiz wont be hard. trust me. and not all the stuff listed on top is really needed. i sometimes use electrical tape instead of the shrink wrap. what ever makes the job done.

ive got a yok mr4tc-sd. and i have the rayspeed chassis on it so the upper deck doesnt have as many holes in it and its stronger.everything is black and annodized blue except the wires. the only reason i dont change wire colors is because of identifying them. if i could i would get them all red black or dark blue. blue would be awsome, but im not sure where to find blue 18guage wire for my spedo and motor.

18g? thats too small. used what everybody use.. cause there is a definity reasson behind that... use 12g or 14g... what ever you do heat shrink the servo,esc ,transponder wire,thed zip tie it or just double side it, then for the motor just shorten the wire,, thats it.. i guess this is already well explain aint it?

You could always use sticky thingo's (thats what I call em), they are a small piece of plastic bout 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch that you can zip tie to, they've got double sided tape on the underside. I get mine from jaycar, but most electronics stores should have em in like a "wire tidy pack" or something similar. Hope this helps.
