no you use an extension lead and run it from the reciever to the battery and you unplug it from there.

Get some small springs to place between the brake shoes at the top and bottom mounts. This will keep the pads from rubbings on the disc and you won't need to have anything to pull the brake arm back.

Don't put the handle on unless you are going to use an open body, it makes for a neater look.

Drill a small hole in the chassis below the fuel tank overflow and connect a piece of fuel line to the overflow and into the drilled hole.

Talking about the servo horns, it's a matter of getting the right ones that work. I got myself the aftermarket servo horn from Q-World, fits well.

I just got myself a WRX servo a couple of months back, the shorter Sanwa wires did make things a lil bit easier...

Yes. It's not ideal but I have not found a better solution yet. It's a pain in the a$$ because the plug on my receiver is next to the gas tank.

Agreed! I use this one:http://www.futaba-rc.com/parts/futm1980.html (20mm Single FUTM2133) The blue looks good.

Is Sanwa marketed in the US under another name? I hear about them all the time but I never see any.
