    Fourth channel??

    Are you talking the thumb switch? (Channel 3)
    Or a Summit specific locker switch? (Channels 4 and 5)

    EDIT:
    I forgot that Traxxas also uses the Summit remote for the Drag cars.

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    That toggle switch is channel 4 and channel 5, not just channel 4.
    Channels 4 and 5 are half channels... they only have half travel; they only travel from center to one side and back.

    The switch might be able to be wired in such a way that
    position 1 throws channel 4
    position 2 (center) returns 4 to center
    position 3 throws channel 5

    EDIT:
    Come to think of it, you can get the same effect by reversing channel 4.

    what i'm working with is a rc4wd 9300xt winch. i need a neutral position so the winch isn't constantly working.

    for a winch you'd need to use ch3.
    Problems.The manual's good starting point. Simple

    This is correct.
    As I said in post #5, channels 4 and 5 are half channels.

    Channel 3 is the only channel possible for a winch.
    This thread will give the thumb switch a center off position:
