This kit is designed to be used only with pre-supplied type 540 motor and pinion gear.


Requires 4-channel, 2-servo digital proportional R/C unit with electronic speed controllerwith variable forward and reverse function.
Use of Futaba Attack 4WD (4ch) or stick type transmitter with slide trim is recommended toperform gear change while running. The Airtronics VG400/600 model radios are also capable as they feature slide trim and self neutral control sticks.
2ch R/C unit cannot be used as it cannot shift gears.
PCM type receiver may not be used as it may cause radio interference when using withseparately available Multi Function Unit.
Use high power type ESC with reverse function (maximum continuous current: forward 120A,reverse 60A, FET regulation).
A high-spec ESC is especially recommended when running on rough terrain.
TEU-302BK Electronic Speed Controller (ITEM 45028) is recommended.

While standard type steering servo is sufficient, high torque servo is recommended whenrunning on rough terrain.
Use of ITEM 50473 High Torque Servo Saver White or ITEM 51000 High Torque ServoSaver Black will further improve efficacy.
Do not use small, large or high-speed servo.
Tamiya 7.2V running battery (ITEM TA201)
Eight AA batteries for transmitter.

Battery and Radio information 1. Any Tamiya 7.2V battery can be used to power the vehicle. Different milliampere-hour (mAh) values may effect the amount of running time enabled by the battery. For example, 7.2V 1400SP battery should normally enable 10 to 15 minutes of running time. However, please note that actual running time may decrease due to extended full throttle and other high power running.

2. The following 4-channel R/C unit (self-neutral stick type transmitter/receiver) is recommended for optimum operation: FUTABA ATTACK 4WD (T4VWD/FP-R114H) The Airtronics VG400/600 model radios are also capable as they feature slide trim and self neutral control sticks.

Be aware that using an R/C unit without a self-neutral system may increase difficulty of operation. Without self-neutraling channels (spring loaded sticks) the operator is left to center the throttle and steering without the aid of self-centering springs, which makes driving the truck harder than it needs to be.

4-channel wheel-type transmitters can be used with ITEM 58372, but will not be able to be used with kit equipped with Multi-Function Unit (To be released).

PPM receivers are recommended for use with this kit.
PCM receivers are not compatible with kit equipped with Multi-Function Unit.

Other makers radio control units of 4 or more channels can be used, but may not realize the optimum functioning of this kit.
Recommended use of similar R/C unit as used with ITEM 56511 Tractor Truck Multi-Function Control
