Nothing wrong with the performance of Deans. If you use SMC's then corallys hanging on the ends of the wires look stupid

I have made a few adjustments to my electronics instalation since then.

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 ?

Thanks all, for the PMs & compliments on the Mini.

It's an Atlas Beat ES4-M1 Carbon kit (more like a cross between a TA05 and a Genetic). In fact, besides the upper & lower decks, motor mount, and the drivetrain, the parts are exactly the same as the Genetic. I was a bit weary of buying this car for fear of lack of parts support, but now that ABC is in the US, I don't need to worry about getting the typical parts that usually break/get worn out.

The faux CF I used to accent the electronics is just vinyl I got from a local sign shop.

It's my OCD revealing itself! Here's a quick 5 minute wiring job I did for a buddy - his idea of neat wiring was driving me crazy!




Here are a few more from my lineup:

TA05


TRF416


TRF415 MSX MRE (in progress)

I can't stand those Xcelorin senor wires, they are SOOO long! I just swap those things out for shorter ones.

When you have little or no room in a car, I've found it's just better to shorten all the wires up. If you decide later you want to move the electronics over to another type of car (i.e. a buggy) you can always make an extension or solder new wire to the board that is just long enough to fit the new chassis properly.

How do you like that TB03 anyway? I am so tempted to pick one up.
