Default Front Dig Mod,steering mod & pushbar

I did the "Front Dig" mod by using another 1:18th board & piggy backing it to the orginal board (just the power wires run in paralle) then I used the steering wires (yellow & blue) from the board to power a Futaba S3110 mini servo making sure to use 2 - 10 ohm 1 whatt resistors in series to reduce the voltage to the servo. Also I removed the circuit board from the servo & ran the red & black wires from the servo right to the motor in the servo. And to make the connection from the yellow & blue wires to the connector on the servo I soldiered paper clips (cut to lenght) to the (yellow & blue) wires so they can be plugged & unplugged from the servo. I made a bracket to hold the servo & used a blowdart for the linkage. The blowdart is kinda spring like & acts like a servo saver & doesn't bend & stay that way. The linkage connects via a small hole drilled through the high/low switch (sides on switch sanded to slide easy). A simple screw through the gear case & the high gear keeps the rear locked. To operate the front dig you just select a different channel on the second board & switch back & forward between bands on your radio.

I also did the Hobby grade steering servo using the the same method above for wiring & mounting. This time using a Hi-tec 81MG servo. I flipped the (rear) rear which really helps! And I made a pushbar.


Update: Little mod to cage.
