Default Esc placement and wire routing

How is everyone routing wires and where are you placing the ecs and battery? After screwing around with it for a while, this is what I think ill end up with. But I'm open to suggestions. Post pics of your setup please.

This is mine with the mytrickrc rock light wiring installed. I did move the loom off the fender too the body mount support to clear the body interior.

Just a word of caution with that type of loom.

It can hold water and dirt, chafing wires and breaking down insulation. Also be sure to not have any stress on the loom, it can burn through the insulation eventually.

This is what the spaghetti looks like so far.

Still a ton to add. Waiting on a Futaba 7PX-R. After the budget recovers from that capital purchase, we will be looking to add a switchable light kit, ESS Dual sound kit, and a winch controller.

I put all my electronics on the same side, similar to what flatlander did. I also routed the motor and servo wires under the chassis brace and motor cover so the least amount of wire is exposed. It is pretty clean.
I also put my switch right near the opening where the links can be seen, so the switch is accessible from the underside while the body is on.

I'll post some pics once I figure out how to do it.

My setup. I'd like to lenghten the motor wires and clean then up a bit with the braided over sleeve once I get some on hand.
I also placed the on/off switch so i can access it from the bottom with the body on.

I love it the amount of low end control is insane and they developed the whole FOC thing so it maintains the same wheel speed when trying to crawl.... no more feathering the throttle it's just smooth theres no other way to describe it

Nice, I actually just ran it last night and it seems good. Just need to dial it in some.
