You DON'T want me to post a pic of my Type-R, probably the ugliest wiring job ever on that thing. My 1/12 scale and offroad car are pretty, but you cant make that car look good, I run the ESC on the other side of the chassis, so its wires snaking all over to begin with.

However, the Type-R shocks are probably the BEST shocks I have ever run, super smooth and tough, at least my set is better than any Kyosho or Tamiya shock I have ever assembled.

Really? That's the shock that came stock on the original CRC WGT car. I HATED it. Switched to CRC's Encore shock and never looked back. My favorite TC shocks have always been the HPI's that came on my HARA Pro4. Easy build and WICKED consistent.

Well I'll be damned, they did come with something that resembles the shocks on my TC, but for some reason my shocks are great. They don't leak, bind, get their fluid dirty or anything, they work great. I was tempted to lay down the $50 for a full set that was for sale new on Stormerhobbies a while ago, but I didn't want to pony up the cash for something I didn't even have plans for, much less need.

Valk- The e4 looks great! Just keep soldering and you'll get better.

Here's my new ride. Didn't come out as clean as I'd like it to be, but for some reason, I like seeing the wires more. One of these days I'll get my wife to take and upload pics the right way.
