Not super-clean but I think it's ok. Chassis is kinda dirty though.

Have you ever wondered how many wires you could fit into a touring car? I found out. The car was just 7 grams over the 1420g limit with body (and body clips). It's an EagleTree data logger which records RPM, throttle position, amp draw, pack voltage and motor temperature. Not the prettiest wiring, but it's functional, balanced, and didn't get caught up in anything that spins or moves.












If anyone has technical questions about the data logger, just PM me instead of posting here.

Thanks guys. I did cheat a little. The antenna is hidden under the car, and I photoshopped the red out of the servo wires...

Here's more of my RC pics if anybody's interested: http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p53/94eg/rc/

The trick is to cover all servo, receiver and ESC labels in carbon fiber look decals. You can also use black sharpie to cover up color in your receiver wires. And spend lots and lots of time trying to figure out how best to run wires down the center of the car. Bundle excess wires (even antenna) inside a pieces of heat shrink and squish them down between the electronics.
