What is that component inbetween the Rx and esc, with the sqr bumps on it? One other car posted has the same thing.

It's a capacitor for esc.

Thought you put a black and white filter on it.

This thread has inspired me to cleanup my install. I used to have my ESC mounted flat (half extended over the chassis' edge), but decided to get it closer to the center on its side. At any rate, I went ahead and made most everything as short as was reasonable. This is MUCH better than it used to look.

Gotta say that is the worst place to put lead, first you don't want it ON your receiver it can possibly cause interference. 2nd, you don't want it hanging off the side, it will get torn off the first time you get hit, take it off, and put it along the edge of the chassis.

@Defcone
No black/white filter or any tricks. Just a lot of effort to get the right lighting in the room and correct camera/lense settings. You can spot color on the receiver, swaybars, outdrives.

@RedBullFiXX
Thank you. I appreciate the nice words!
There surely are other great cars on this thread, such as Kentech's 417x.
I like the stealth look of the A700. Others like my TCX (check older posts in my blog) more.
Guess it is just subjective, personal preference.

Glad to see some people are using the Type R still. I will have to post pics of mine later, when i borrow my wife's camera.
