SERVO HOOK-UP- A Team Associated steering servo was installed early on, but never hooked up. We located a Hot Racing aluminum servo saver and bolted it on with some random ball ends and Du-Bro tie-rod we found in a bin of spare hardware.
ESC INSTALL- To send power to the Duratrax 17.5T motor we installed, a Hobbywing Stock Spec V3.1 ESC was taped down right behind the Venom LiPo battery tucked into the battery box. The ESC wires needed to be soldered to the motor and a plug soldered to the battery leads. We performed the task with our TrakPower TK60 iron.
Here’s the finished truck. A Spektrum mini receiver was taped to the lower deck and we’ll program a model into one of our Spektrum radios when we finally go to run it. In Part 5 of the build, we’ll mount up the body and go out for a drive. Perhaps we’ll also finally mention what you have to do to enter to win this one of a kind truck. Stay tuned!
