Anybody remember how i killed this truck. Where did you go and oh, no terrible right, um? Initially i brought this home and it still worked, but i guess after a while, maybe sam got in something – and i just plugged it in and i just drove over with it – and i got smoke coming out of here, which i would assume is the board. I have a fresh board for it. Um i don’t know if i need to upgrade the servo. If, if i need to, i have another servo here, uh, so we’re gon na see what we can’t do here. To get this back to life. Canopy’S off you can see, there is sand just still loaded in this you can see. The outside of the motor is pretty well rusted. Hopefully the motor is still good. Otherwise, we might turn this into a uh which we’ll call it brushless, because i have a brushless system ready to go in this, but look at the rust man, salt, water, no good um. Even on these screws, some of the screws were really difficult to take out. Just because of the rust but um we’re gon na give this go we’re going to try to just replace that and see what happens so to get the old one off is really simple, is just double sided tape on here, then your antenna was glued back here And then your switch underneath, which i wasn’t able to get out, also had some hot glue on it.
So we will be relocating the new switch that’s on here, but it’s going to be plug and play you’re going to plug your servo into that port right there. That little white plug down here says servo, and then i only have one set of leds on here yet they’re on the canopy but they’re going to plug right into these we’re going to go ahead and turn this on. Okay. So so far, so good no smoke! No, nothing! You can see it’s looking to be bound we’re gon na turn on the jumper here dude. I use the jumper for everything and i guess i have to rebind to this because it’s new uh new board, so all we’re gon na do is gon na. Go down to here, we’re gon na click bind bam, okay bound so automatically there we go all right, so our steering works without a hiccup let’s. Just all right now hold on. I try to i’m trying to have this level here. So it looks like we’re gon na be good as far as the which one call it the motor goes looks like we’re in business that’s. All i had to do again. This is rough, the suspension’s rough, because it’s covered in rust, um but i’m gon na. Stick that down and it should be good, i’ll put it back together. Unfortunately, we did not get to use this. I will link this down below. These are definitely great servos.
I kind of wanted to put in there, but i figure if the servo’s still good there’s. No reason to replace it in case. I really need that servo for something else. Let’S go ahead and check this out outside quick, it’s freezing, so we’re not spending a lot of time outside so i’ve actually deleted. The toggle switch so we’re just going to plug it. In right here, just because i didn’t want to wire it up at some point, i can always wire it up so that’s on all i need to do is go ahead and turn on the jumper should be bound seems like it has a little bit of a Right steer issue, nothing too bad, nothing that we can’t control there we go just don’t want to hit my cell phone reverse on the jumper, with wl toy stuff, doesn’t work. All the time like i might be able to get it to work, probably not, but we’ll. Just go over here just to show you it’s working, it definitely is working. I wish i could get that reverse work. Applause. Sometimes you got to press reverse like six seven times before it decides it’s going to actually reverse Music.
