  1. Really stuck now. I have everything built but the wheels etc... The steering works but the throttle does not. The kit cam with a Tamiya TBLE-02S. There are no LED's lit or flashing. If I hold the set button down it will flash green and if I just press it, it goes red just for a blip. Anyone have any thoughts?
  2. I have another question for you guys. Since the spline on the servo is 24 tooth and the servo savers that came with the kit are 25, I bought a kimbrough servo saver with 24 spline for my Hitec servo. Actually says Hitec on the package. My concern is that the servo saver that came with the kit sticks out about maybe a 1/4 inch further from the servo than the Kimbrough/Hitec servo saver does. Any thoughts if this would cause an issue, or do I need to get another servo that has 25 spline to fit the savers that come with the kit, such as Futaba? thanks again!
  3. Here is another one that has me baffled. I have this part that is not shown anywhere in the instructions. It looks like a gear. It is not even in the parts list. I have a pics attached. Any help would be awesome. You guys have been great!!
  4. If you use the threadlocker are you able to get it off if needed? thanks!
  5. Do you just poke a whole with the motor shaft through the paper and push tight against the motor with the pinion gear or keep it somewhat loose?
  6. Making my way through the kit and it has been lots of fun so far. I am stuck on one step though... It is where you position the pinion gear... not sure what it means buy using the paper header from the screw bag. Is this for the depth that the gear needs to go to on the motor? I have heard of using a piece of paper to mesh the pinion with the spur gear but not sure about this. I attached an image of the step in the kit instructions. Any help would be great! thanks!
  7. Ball bearings for the servo saver or just in general?
  8. Got a kimbrough 131. Looks like a good fit but what came with the kit sticks out about an 1/8 of an inch more than the kimbrough. Anyone know if that sounds like an issue? I guess it probably depends on the kit.
  9. Another question for you guys. I just tried to plug the ESC into the reciever and it doesn't fit. The ESC plug has like a tab on the side of it. Is this something I cut off with a model knife or is there and adapter? I uploaded a couple of images thanks again
  10. Would the Kimbrough 201 or 123 be the best bet? 201 kind of looks more like what came in the kit.
  11. Just as a try I put on the Futaba/tamiya one and felt like it fit well. Not loose and not too tight. I'm not sure what is should feel like though. I talked to my hobbie shop friend and he said he thought that the kit would come with a 23,24 and 25... sounds like that is not the case.
  12. Hello - I just bought a Lunch Box to build. I have not done one of these in almost 30 years so I am very new to it. First thing that is confusing me is that I have a HiTEC HS-645MG servo. Do I use the servo arm that comes with the servo or the one that came with the kit? I see that the ones that come with the kit are Futaba, Tamiya, Sanwa and Acoms. Will these work with a HiTEC servo? Also should the servo saver still be used? thanks
