    aren't those cords a tad too short?

    I think it's the side with the warning sticker on it if you didn't take it off

    Ignore the second receiver, but these drawing should help:

    Oh if I use it to power my rx like castle shows, can I run 7.4v though my stock traxxas rx and lil shifting servos,and lights? Or do, I need to stay at 6v?

    The stock Traxxas servos already like to strip themselves out under big stress, so putting 25% more power to them isn't a good idea!

    Even just the 2065 shifting servos? I picked up a red radiopost to handle the steering. I have problem in the bec of the evx-2 I think and have been told. Traxxas said to send it back. Iam stuborn and wont pay to ship it back or be without my summit. So iam adding the cc bec as a bandaid for the esc and a helper for the new radiopost servo.

    I am not sure the Rx is rated for that kind of power... nor those wee lil servos.

    Also, don't just hook up one battery hoping that is the BEC side... if the wrong side is hooked up you will be out the rest of your ESC.

    If you hook both up and power up the system... then unplug one battery and everything shuts down, that is the non BEC side. If everything stays up but the motor, that is the BEC side. Also, the BEC side battery will allow the ESC to flicker on but not stay on.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
