Default Sensor cable protection

Quick question: In many of the photos of the wiring, the motor sensor cable is protected in a loosely fitting black tubing. Is that just heat shrink tubing or something else that will not be affected by the heat of motor? What ever the tubing is, what size works best? Is the purpose of the black tubing to protect the sensor cable from a hot motor or from rubbing?

Thanks,

Henry

Most high quality cables come with it.

Just finished wiring my VTA car. This is what this thread has inspired me to do!
It is an XRAY T1FK'05

Because of this thread I now have a heavily biased view of what pretty wiring looks like. Everybody who looks over my 1/12 car says the wiring is pretty, but I don't think its good enough to post on here!

Does anyone know how to shorten the servo wires in a savox (1257) internally? They appear to be soldered between two circuit boards. I can't tell how/ if they can be separated.

The easiest way to shorten the wires is to buy a 20/24 Guage pin crimping tool and some new F connector from Novak. With a little planning your servo wires will be perfect.
I also recommend a very light solder job to ensure positive continuity.

I've got the crimping stuff but was replacing the wire with TQ flat black. I figured it out. Had to just unsolder if from the bottom of the board and then just replace it from that side.

Not bad. I know on the older T3 I ran my fan wires under the motor mount. There was just enough room. Not sure if the same holds true with the 2012.

Alright. I am going to step it up for my S411 wire job... I always took pride in my wire jobs until I came to this thread.

Will be done in a few weeks. Let's see what 24 years of R/C experience can do.
