I purchased a rolling chassis and have done extensive upgrades
on the car, RPM, MIP, single servo upgrade, 2 speed transmission ect!!
Now it's time to upgrade the electronics.
I just purchased the new 4 channel Bluetooth transmitter and 5 channel
receiver. I now have just purchased a wire set for the telemetry.
It consists of the a sealed package 6541 connector, power tap.
It also contained what looks like a temp sensor with bracket and
cable tie, and what looks like a speed sensor.
I need some help hooking it up.
From what I see on the website, I need to buy part 6538, which I assume
screws onto the spur gear and has a magnet on it to trigger the
speed sensor. This sensor must plug directly into the receiver.
1st question, how does this sensor fit in the car, on the gear
2nd Question, what holds the sensor onto the cover? hot glue?
Again from the website I assume that the temp sensor attaches
onto the motor and the power tap plugs into it, and the sensor must
plug into the receiver.
3rd Question, does it matter where you attach on the motor.
4th Question, power tap goes between one of the batt's and
the esc, does it matter which one?
Does this sound like I have the setup correct?
I would appreciate anyone's help in setting this up.
Thanks in advance for all your help!!
I should add, I see the spot on the gear cover that the sensor should
fit into, however I can't find anywhere a bracket to hold it in.
Thanks Guys I really appreciate your help.
This forum has really helped me out!!
The rpm sensor is mounted onto the spur gear with three screws that is why the new spur gears have 3 holes....magnet is just off to the side alittle from the nut for clutch. The little magnet is in a tiny pocket glued in place already u literally just have to mount onto spur. Also that plugs into reciever where all the telem spots are. If u need pics let me know....oh and the servo looking wire with black thingy lol on the end of it is what is mounted on gear cover and lines up with the magnet attached to spur when put on. This is how data is recieved. Of course other end is the reciever end

That's what I thought.
what holds the sensor in the gear cover?
That sits in a little pocket on the gear cover and a very short screw is put in right above the black part of the sensor... basically prevents it from sliding back out
Do I have the rest of the setup correct?
