    Skaling,
    Also wanted to know how you did your wiring for the fans.

    Btw, where did you get your shock socks?

    Thanks!

    I think you need to lower that body. Makes the truck look much better.

    That's one bashed up servo guard.
    I had it too on my pede, but removed it after 3 runs, to much dirt and small rocks etc. got stuck between the servo guard and steering linkage, burned a servo on the 2nd run with it, on 3rd run again stuff got stuck between the guard and the steering linkage, removed the servo guard, never had problems again

    And as o0wiz0o says, try to lower the body, makes the truck look even better!

    the fans are both running off the ESC with a home made 2-way splitter. Might switch it so they are coming off the receiver though. As for changing the motor mount, I could have done it right away but it works fine as is, so I pushed the upgrade back on the priority list.

    planning on it now that I got the fans installed. Left it high for air flow till I got the fans.

    The shock socks appear to be made of smooth material. I wonder if those socks can be glued into the center drive shaft hole to prevent sand and rocks from going in. Just a suggestion.

    yes, they are smooth and very stretchy. Could work on the drive shaft, i do have 2 extras cuz they came in a 6pack.

    I also made up an adapter harness from a couple of 2 pin pigtails from the LHS. I've got all 3 fans running off the ESC plug with no problems. That's the shortest wire distance which is always best. I've got LED headlights plugged into the receiver anyway. You get the same available BEC 6V /up to 2.5A no matter where you plug in. ESC hookup is foolproof. Some guy ran them into his receiver and hooked it to the wrong terminal and burned up the fans.
