That is by far the best looking car I have seen. Excellent paint job. Not too busy either.

Do any of you guys use fail-safes? I haven't seen any installed on your cars.

I don't think I have ever seen a fail safe on an electric car. I maybe wrong, but modern speedos have an internal limiter that send power to the servo/rec primarily, and the motor secondly. I don't reallly see the need. I don't run one in nitro either, just more hassle then it's worth. Just run PCM.

How does that keep people from jumping on your frequency and causing your car to go erratic?

The ESC only needs the plus as a reference point and to internal powering + RX/servo power. In other words, the ESC only draws very low amp on the plus side

So....

If you flipped the battery around and get the plus pole close to the motor, you could have a much shorter red wire from the battery plus to the motor plus. Then solder a red wire from the motor plus to the ESC plus.

The negative wires, just leave it as is, I tend to say the wires will have the same length as for now.

I dont know how much more speed it'll give, but it's worth a try

Oh, and about graphite: Usually there's more to earn throgh driving style, than through nice graphite. But then again, you might be a much better driver than me
Thanks for the tips....I will be sure to put them to use.

This is what I truly love about this hobby. I enjoy seeing everyone's cars and layouts. It is just so much fun to see a car that is perfectly cared for, and all decked out with awesome parts. Keep it up racers....let's see some more cars.
