Hi folks,

I'm new to 1:12 and the X12 2014 is my second pancar ever. Yesterday I tried to fit the electronics in my chassis and I'm wondering how I could manage to install the cables going from the ESC to the motor in a way that the POD could still move freely?!??! Any suggestions? Right now I just go over the carbon brace but the the cables hit the car body and I think that ain't good either.

Regards,
Mike

Hey Mike,

What gauge wire are you running? Most guys are running either 14 or even 16 gauge for 12th scale.

Here is a "first pass" of my current setup:

I say "first pass" because it takes a few times to get it right, in particular getting the left-right balance of the car as close as possible. I've made a few changes to this (turned the battery around and shortened the leads for one) but it should get you started.

Don't be afraid to re-wire after a race day!

Luke

I use TQ wire 16 gauge.... best wires on the market. Super flexible yet enough power transfer.
