    i put one of them on the rear shock tower.but you can put it almost anywhere.just Not close to the reciver.

    the pinion should have a screw.lossen that.if it is stuck on and you cant pull it off with your hand.pry it off with needle nose plyers.

    just take off two cells of one six cell pack and make a four cell pack.charge a six cell pack and the four cell pack.then connect the Red plug of one pack to the Black of the other pack.then you have one Black and one Red,plug them into the Speed control.

    i will warn you right now,your Truck will be FAST.be carfull not to crash it.

    Is your motor a P-94? The brushes you got, are they P-94 style? check to see if there is any play between the brush and hood.
    Did you do anything else to the motor?

    :(
    please help me, i keep slamming my gt into random hard things trewes signs curbs feet etc,,,

    ok rc10gt rtr kit,, i put all the aluminum i cuold find on it, put in an associated .12. ran it for a while no issue, added a trinity 5 cell servo pack nimh , to this i spliced a charging conector,, by cutting the lead,, then splicing and soldering 3 wires together, when i charge i unplug car and input charger jack,, aside from this and the edition of aluminum parts i can think of nuthing possibly related,

    THE PROBLEM
    when im sitting in front of my car testing it every thing works great
    when i take off ,, it goes fine for about 20 25 feet
    then,, WHAMMO
    my gas response dies,, and my steriing tweeks out
    enter the hard stuff

    the first time i discrovered this problem i learned how to set throttle return springs, and spent half an hour collecting the pieces after the batttery went off with it florred sending my truck hurtling into hard stuff @ 40 mph luckly it ping ponged so after 5 passes i could predict its direction and stop it b4 any but moderate damage could result,, i collected pieces and spent winter rebuilding

    i switched out the servo for steering, secured the battery permanantly, used over sezed screws to hold bumpers on, reatached muffler with coathanger wire, AND fixed the return spring,,

    i was confident today would be the day i get to play again, so i took her out reved her up nice, and took off.........................

    problem is 30 or so feet away, i relize im not controlling the car, and its slowing down thank god, so i relized a lil less painfully that my problem which had crippled my car end of last sason plauges it this season still, after replacing the servo,

    im on a way tight budjet,, any one know of what i should "fix" next givin my first atempt with the servo wasted precous resorces,, (i got a half gallon to use tweekin it then i need gas would suck if i dont have it cause i keept buying retarded things that dont fix the problemm

    HELP!!

    First you need to check your antenna and make sure it's not running along side any other wires or laying on the chassis. See that it extends as high as it can. Has the antenna bent cut or nicked? Also try a different set of crystals. Bateries new in the transmitter? The antenna wire could be disconnected from the circuit board of the receiver, or a bad receiver.
    Don't start the truck, just set it down with it on and walk away and see when you start to lose control of the servos, you'll need someone to stand and watch the car.
    Make sure your receiver is wraped in foam in the receiver box the keep it safe from vibration.

    You didn't say where you run your truck at, if your by metal buildings or large power lines this could also cause your problem, try an open area if so.
