What's that part on the motor wires to space them apart?

While that wire clamp looks nice I would not want to have a conductive material clamping down on my power wires possibly transmitting energy through it to the other wires. Just my $.02

I dont think there is enough voltage (even spikes) going through the phases to worry about it penetrating the insulation. No different than your wires rubbing up against a carbon fiber or aluminum chassis component.

You guys using sharpies to make your servo wires black, how do you get them THAT black? Mine always has runs in it, even with several coats, and you can still see traces of red and white.

TQ makes black servo line but that involves wiring your servo and a lot of people aren't comfortable with that.

You could always dye them with rit dye, but again, to do it right you have to remove it from the board

I dont mind removing the wire from the board, its crimping those connectors on the other end, as I dont have a crimp tool or the patience to do it by hand

I really cant believe no one is selling these already made up, and you just cut them to your desired length.

I heard many were starting to become tired of carbon vinyl wrap and black wires, so i decided to spice it up a bit, on a customers chassis



A closer look.




Constructive criticism appreciated ^_^

Love the white look Reminds me of the early M18, with options for a white, blue or black carbon chassis

I still can't understand why people use heat shrink to cover the soldered leads?

Worst case scenario, screw pops out while running and shorts out 2 of the phases?

I cant argue, i myself do like uncovered leads, but take in mind - these are not my chassis's i simply do what the customer asks, and the customer is always right - also i've noticed they tend to like the "stealthed" look of all the leads covered.
