Everyone shy's away from the radio setup because they have to read and think some but it's a cleaner setup and you would be the first to not use a y harness unless Art did and didn't say anything

Art will know
But he's being chauffeured around by his Girlfriend this 4 of July
He may have gotten sunburned he had his shades on and all that water
He may have to go back to work to rest up
I was the one driving in the picture she took. Selfies tend to be a mirror image. No sun burn either, so ha! You going to be at the 1/5th scale race in Monticello, IL this month old man?

I'm using a Spektrum SR6000T receiver, so I have a total of 7 open slots, and I used every one of them. No "Y" harnesses for me. I'm trying to remember where I have everything plugged in. I think it's something like this:

Bat/Bind - Receiver battery
Steering - Steering servo #1
Throttle - Main RX signal from ESC
Aux 1 - Steering servo #2
Aux 2 - Brake servo
Aux 3 - AUX from ESC
Aux 4 - Fan for ESC

I use a mix in my DX5R for steering as well as brakes.

Thanks for the info! I've been able to set it up pretty closely to that but I don't think I'll be able to set up the stock radio (dx2e) for the mechanical brakes without using a y harness. Doesn't seem to have any mixing capabilities. I'll either run the harness or buy a new radio. Thanks again

Boy she is a brave one then if you were driving
Unfortunately I won't be there
I've been off work for almost a year now and my income is not what it once was
Also I got a new 1/8 nitro buggy and we are racing close to home
And my hillbilly motor home is not done yet
It's hard to believe that I can't do what I once did
So I'll have to be happy just looking good for now
Have fun and tell Lee we will be out next year grandson will be 3 and can start to drive next year 1/5 is to much for him right now hard to hold up his diaper and drive all at the same time

I'm in Danville, IL.

I'm running proper gearing and batteries that have between 1 and 1.5 mΩ.

I was pleasantly surprised with ALL of the info in my data logs.



I wish I could get more than 10 to 12 minutes of run time on the track, but that's not really any different than my 1/8 nitro and electric, so I can't complain. It only sucks when racing against gas 1/5.
