Yes, the internal antenna provides just enough for using electric. Basically its the same as the antenna-less fast rx.

Just finished a complete over on one of my TC5's, which also received a modification which meant a re-sort of the electrics.

I saw some of the rides have some thin gauge wire on them and there using 2 cell lipos also.

What would be the thinest gauge wire you guys would recomend using for 17.5 touring, with a 2 cell lipo?

It won't fit every touring car, try to fit it on a JRX-S.

I just finished my XRAY T3 last night and snapped some pics. TO me it looks similar to my 009 except I am now using a 4PK and had to adjust the wires to the batteries as they needed to be lengthened.

Off to race!
Thanks man. And to you to! As always your car matches perfectly and looks awesome! Yeah I know I dont need one, but clean perfect pics really set off a nice wire job IMO

4PK kicks arse! I love mine!

Ohh yeah! It works either way! Nice not to have the antenna around my chassis. Simplifies things
