Dyeable, eh? That's too cool!

Maybe you should anodise the motor all black, and wire the
whole system with black cabling only... haha "stealth".

It's actually going into a pink car, so I was contemplating doing the purple parts in pink... It'll look either way though

Randy, I really hope you did not remove the heatsink when you dyed the case. I have been told that it is VERY important that you do not remove the heatsink. RBF thought about doing something like that and he was specifically told not to by Bob. Sorry about your luck.

i also thought that sensor wires (NOT the POWER WIRES) could not be shortened due to calibration.

No need to remove the HeatSink to dye the case R-type...It was the Pimpin Purple HeatSinkthat I wanted to anodize orange to match the case, but Bob said the HeatSink is permanantly mounted to the internals so its not recommended.

The Black case does look pretty sweet RandMan.

That heatsink is on there for good Rod, the case fits snugly around it... I would like to have it anodized, but they have some really strong adhesive on the back of it.

I dont see how it could mess up the calibration at all. Electricity moves instantly, so weather the wires are long or short, it reaches from point to point at the same time...

a set length of wire has a certain resistance, which will effect the voltages. But I don't know if it would be a problem for the Novak brushless, it is something you have to watch out for on a ProTrak charger

I doubt the resistance in 4" of wire will be enough to make any difference...
