I just got my duratrax spike esc for my corally f-1 however the wires are extremely long and i want to shorten them, but how would i go about doing this. O! I want to do it with bullet style connectors.

Just cut the wires to the desired length. You will probably have to chuck the bullet connectors and get either a new set or some better connectors. You could try to pry up the crimped part of the bullet connector but you will probably end up messing the connector up.

Or you could desolder the 2 motor wires from the circiut board, then cut the wires to length. Then you could resolder the wires with the bullet connectors back to the circiut board. But be shore to remember to solder the positive wire to the positive terminal and the negative to the negative terminal on the ESC's circiut board.

Heres the easiest sollution, just get a couple of nylon wire ties and tie the wires up to shorten them without hacking them.:D
