looks good so far for a esc i would use a lrp cause it comes water proof and is a great and cheap esc

body color go with a tanish color like sand then put a white top on it

looking good chris, i like it so far. i agree with the tan, itll look good. and your 4 link looks good, but i sugest getting some sort of sideways mount, it looks cleaner, and its stronger
