    Thanks, Anyone know if I can just cut off the female servo plug on the Y harness for the light bar? It's not hooked up to anything and I can't get it into the receiver box.

    Yea I already cut it. Man the light bar adds alot of light will be able to do some night runs now. The HiTec servo shouldn't have any problems with water right? It's not waterproof but someone said water shouldn't be a problem.

    yeah I was wondering the same thing ... just got a hitec for my summit and revo and dusty motors bags coming for them .... I was thinking of putting some liquid tape on the seems to seal things up a bit ... it would suck to have that servo go out after a short period of time due to snow

    So how do I disassemble the shocks? Looked at http://traxxas.com/sites/default/fil...R%20Shocks.pdf and all it did was confuse me...

    Where do you get stuck?
    Also, side cutters? There must be a better tool to grab the shafts without damaging them too much =X.

    That's a pretty good explanation... is there anything in particular you're having trouble with? It's a good idea to use some paper towel when gripping the shaft with the pliers so you don't mark them.

    How do you remove the spring retainer? Just pull it with pliers?

    I use pliers to hold the shock shaft...I use long nose pliers to help rotate and loosen the rod end, then just use my hand to take off once loose...once that's off and the end cap is of the shaft should just come out...you may need to loosen the cap on top of the shock. That should see you right.

    EDIT: This may help you...may not.

    Brake amount at 30 or drag brake? Also in the castle link program I don't see an option for BEC and for voltage cutoff it doen't have 3.5v an option.
