Pretty much as Owen explained it. Or you can paint the case, either way works. Heatsink is anodized, but you can always easy off the blue one and make it silver

Im actually going to be selling the blacked out spx soon if anyone is interested.



Chop a normal connector up and make them work How I did them

Heres my car as of now. As I said im swapping esc's soon, so I soldered up the motor pretty fast but people were asking me how I did it.. sldo the wire is to thick def need like 14, or TQ 13 wire. But it matches my car now, no more blue duo The Randy Caster set up wheels are bad ass! If you dont have a set get some! hope the pics are a good size?



I have the same car, reciver, esc and motor as this but i cant lay the reciver flat like that! Are you running 1 servo mount? If so how do you keep the servo in place? More info please!

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.
What do you use the White Lightning Clean Ride for?

I have the same setup as you and BOR. I use both servo mounts, and dremeled the servo mount with a 1/4" sandpaper drum. My wire then can lay flush to the side of the RX cleanly.

I just put it all in as a moc up like the way it is in BOR's picture. I can do it but my only issues are i had to move the gear mesh really close to the spur and none of my pinions are going to fit on there now and my servo wires are really long and i have no idea how to shorten them, can they be shortened?

Kirby- I dont use any servo mounts. Chop them all off the servo, and shoe goo it on. On that car I had my speedo mounted so I could move the motor mount completely over that way with out hitting the speedo, then put in the rx, then the servo and gooed it there. So the servo was moved forward a few mm's. And also on the speedo i re routed all the internal wires out the back of the case so the rx could be flat against the speedo

EDIT, and yes you can shorten all the servo wires. I put black wire on all my electronics

I have a new car and new electronics. Pics will be soon, its going to be siiiiick

Never have I seen a clean wired VTA car. You may be barking up the wrong tree.

You can put a little on the spur and pinions. They run super SUPER silent afterward. Does make a little mess though because the wax flings off onto the chassis over time.

It's also great for shaft driven cars as a lube for plastic running gears. Quiets everything down immensely.

I've been inspired by this thread, so I tried my hand at doing a clean install. I'm no where near some of the others on this thread, but I'm happy with the results. I still have a few more things I want to do.

I've looked everywhere to find purple strapping tape, but I can't find it in stock anywhere. If anyone knows where I can find some, then please let me know.





Some of the people on this thread have amazing picture quality. I tried, but couldn't even get close to the level of detail. Must have good cameras.
