Default 1/12th Scale Wiring...(1S)

With everyone using boosters, Li-Fe and LiPo batteries, voltage regulators, sensor wires and such, there doesn't seem to be much room on 1/12th scale cars for everything.

Looking for ideas on how to lay out my electronics, and your help would be appreciated. Post pics of your clean wiring job and help inspire me to shorten wires and quit zip-tieing everything.

Cars running 1s lipo/booster/rx packs/brushless are preferred, but all 1/12 scale configurations are welcome.

Thanks!

you run ko stuff, should be easy to layout your electronics with the smal 408 rx.

I run the speedo on the left and the rx on the right. if you run the length of the rx allong the length of the chassis right up agains the antenna, there is room for your rx pack just to the right of that. with all ko stuff, you just need the rx pack no booster and no regulator. if you run the ko rx, i would put all the motor wires up against the antenna. i run a tekin and i have the motor wires on the 1s lipo side

Not one photo has 12th scale with lipo's & liFe. Emailed TEKINS the other day, & they said it is nessesary to run a booster or separate pack for the RX, and useing the Hotwire and set it to 1cell lipo's.

yes, I would run one or the other, but not both. I run a rx pack and with my ko rx, no regulator. i run a lipo rx pack, not a life one.

Agreed.

Hey OD, what iron/tip are you using to shorten all the small servo wires and such?

No solder. The wires are cut and crimped with new plug parts. It is important to have a proper crimping tool, but if you do a crimped connection is as good or better than a soldered one
