Don't mind them, the only opinion that counts is mine. I say that wiring job looks awesome man. It's stealthy, so stealthy in fact I can't even see the wires. Besides the awesome photography is just kickin it. For them to say it's alright just doesn't do it justice. You making the car float like that makes it look like its a UFO or something, looks awesome plus you put time into it. A for effort from me.

Thanks man, means Alot. Its really awesome to get noticed for once.

As for a normal view, here you go (keeping in mind the previous photos (other page) were purposly taken like that to be unique, you dont get anywhere if you be the same as everyone else)

It was a mild critique from somebody who may know just a little bit about photography.

You can definitely get somewhere, but you won't rise to the top.

Default A700

This is my latest wiring job.
Not the one I am most proud of but speed controler's wire layout makes it difficult to allign the wires parallel to the motor tabs.

I think it looks pretty good. Nice car as well.

Here is one from a 1/8 buggy with external BEC I just finished:

That looks really nice. What did you use to cover the wires?

Thanks! It's called expandable sleeving... It's like one of those chinese finger traps... Anyway, pretty much any electronics store will have it.

I thought that is what it was. The black on black looks really cool. I will have to check out the store close to me for some other colors.

Thanks

Looking awesome man! How did you cut the sleeving without it fraying at the ends? I bought some recently and am having trouble using it, does anyone have a tutorial on how to use it? If so, a link would be awesome!

Thanks!

You cut it and torch the ends so that they don't fray or wrap with shrink tubing.

Default wired for convenience...

wired for convenience... almost no duoble sided tape removing needed (except for motor fan) to completely remove ALL electronics
