As far as i can gather jimbo runs on astro so.......probably minimal dirt going in
Gotcha! In that case I’ll probably pass on cutting those... might look and see if there’s any way to mount a small computer fan somewhere for added airflow... although I know there’s limited space under there...

Just a thought 🤔

Just reweighed the 2.0 with body full of fuel it weighs 41pounds 2 oz.. the B full of fuel and all weighs 33 pounds 11 oz.. 😳 dauum! That’s a lot of weight difference!

Didn’t have the cage on the 2.0 the first time 🤦‍♂️

If you want to cut holes in the bottom plastic and still want to keep out debris(sticks, etc)..you can do the mesh mod on the bottom plastic.

How is that revolver block?

I’m lovin it so far! I’m still running her pretty rich.. and she has loads of torque.. still just blows all 4 tires off from a dead stop full throttle stab... in my back yard it drives more like a drift car lol

next time out I’ll try to get a video.. yesterday.. as usual I was bashing alone.. ran a tank threw her and then a half tank in my 2.0.. I did more port work on the 32 in it and it runs extremely well also.. especially considering the 7.5 pound weight difference 🤣

ideally u need a direct power lead like the mtxl comes with stock👍...then the servos will drw thefe power from the rx lipo direct and not through the rx itself👍
Could you please tell me exactly how to install this MTXL harness? I’m looking at it and can’t for the life of me figure out how this wires in..

Some pictures of of the DarkSoul harness and what each lead is used for.

1A - connects to your 2 steering servos. 1 lead for each servo.

1B - connects to your reciever channel #1.

2A - connects to your throttle servo.
2B - connects to your reciever channel #2.

3 - is the lead that powers your reciever. I have it plugged into the bind plug on my reciever (Spektrum SR415)

4A - connects to the on/off switch or your battery if you do not have an on/off switch
.

4B - is extra...not really needed for anything. I am using to power a light on my battery box.

You may need to use some extensions in order for everything to be able to reach where it is supposed to go. I needed to use 3 extensions on my setup in the 5ive B.

I just installed the MTXL harness and it fits perfectly without any modification!

Well except changing the battery end to an EC3 connector so it will plug in but other than that it’s a perfect fit

Really like how it takes all the load off the receiver
