Here's a couple of pics of my 12th car. I am still using a brushed setup, which makes the wiring job easy, although you'll notice on one of the pics that I made an upper pod plate and cross brace that uses only 1 damper tube. That makes the motor wires a little bit more tricky to look neat as you have to wire them between the end of the cells and under the cross brace. I will get a brushless setup at some point but no need to at the moment as my car goes fine as it is! All the best guys, Chris.

And i shortened it at the same time. Just gets rid of some of that unwanted sensor lead.
Sweet I didn't think of that! And nope that's the 416's air duct you can see, not sticky tape!

Default My wiring.

Here is the pic i posted of my cyclone on the previous page.

I have made a few adjustments to my electronics instalation since then. I have moved my ESC closer to the motor which gives me room to put my reciever down on its bottom and i have have shortened my ESC and servo leads. I have also polished up my Novak motor. And put on a black antenna . A good tip for an old looking novak motor. I polished it up with T-Cut which is a car scratch remover type polish and it came up like chrome. I just need a low profile servo now so i can mount my pt and switch to the side of that, Heres the new install.





Find more pics of my old install on previous page and compare them !

I want to know which instalation looks neater to you guys ?

Maybe, but +1 on having a Deans connector if it was putting safety before looks

Function over form and all that...

Pretty simple really .. Its called heat shrink. And a deans just looks like a toy connector. The Barrels have more surface area and no plastic.... other than the heat shrink.
