  • Must turn on the transmitter before starting the ESC.
  • ESC Supports XT60 Connector
  • The ESC does not have lipo cut off.
  • While some components may come assembled, it may be in your best interests to check the products to ensure all hardwares are tight. In some cases you may want to apply threadlock to some of the hardwares that were already installed.
  • Use good quality hex drivers to avoid stripping screw heads.
  • Use thread lock when putting metal screws into metal parts.
  • Steps marked with an asterisk (*) require threadlock.
  • Use threadlock sparingly.
  • Do not over tighten screws, otherwise, you may strip the thread.
  • When you raise the rear dump, do not leave it at the highest position. It will create a lot of pressure and potentially blow up the oil tube. Stay no more than 2 seconds and drop the dump to a lower position.
  • Do not use hand to pull the rear door. You will break the door locking mechanism.
  • Do not use more than 3S battery. (11.1 volt(s))
  • Once the hydraulic cylinder (dump) reaches its maximum height, do not push further.
  • If you want to remove the fire extinguisher, just turn it 90 degrees, then pull it out.
  • This product is for experienced R/C users. Not recommended if you just started with R/C.
  • The axle hubs can be screwed off  but may require nylon tipped pliers if they are on really tight.
