    Just take out the Traxxas receiver and install your new one. No extra parts needed. .

    get a Y- Connector.. and use that going into your receiver steering channel slot and plug each one one of the servos into the Y... but you should seriously consider picking up a single steering servo.
    you know.. i never had a sig.. but i do now...

    Only channels you need is the channel 1 for steering , 2 for throttle, and 3 for reverse. You revo steering servos should already have the Y connector installed. The other channels on the Traxxas receiver are for the telemetry options. Like for the rpm's, speed, temp sensors.

    The revo most likely has both steering servos plugged into the 2 channel 1 ports on the traxxas reciever.
    A y cable is all you need to purchase, $3-6 at your local shop.
    That is what I did with one of my Revos that had dual servos.

    The telemetry items have their own ports and don't use the 1,1-5 ports.

    Ah OK my mistake. I thought he was including the telemetry ports as a channel, but the receiver that comes with the spectrum will drop right in. Like I said all you need is channel 1,2,and 3. And get the Y connector for the steering servos.
