Hello,

If you are looking for tools needed to perform any means of repair or if you are planning to shorten your servo lead, then I would recommend to use the crimping tool offered by Custom Electronics.

They can be purchased at www.stormerhobbies.com along with Male or Female Connectors.

Please feel free to view the provided Link: http://www.stormerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...umb=on&smode=0

Best Regards to your endeavor!!

Alex

Just ask everyone in here if you need help. The "clean install" is more a personal flavor kind of thing, they all look good but in different ways. I always start my installs but dont chop all the wires super short and leave room to move stuff around, usually takes me a few times to get to where im happy with the way it looks. As for changing the wire colors, as long as your are comfortable soldering you will be fine, and if you dont want to solder up servos and what not cover them with something, or use a paint pen

Thumbs up Question for Kentech

Hi Kentech, awesome clean picture for your TRF417. I have the same Speed Passion GT2.1 but I would like to know where do you place the huge capacitor? I am not seeing it in your car. Thanks!

It is a clone transponder from MRT. (compatible with all AMB equipment)
I've been using 2 for several years now and they are great.
