Default Assembly questions of RC8

I have just a couple questions for my RC8, if anyone has the time could you please lead me through the steps.

1) Clutch Bell- how much end play should it have, the manual says to add the large clutch shim, but I don't have one, could I double up the small ones ?

2) Maybe a dumb question- which servos wires go to which terminal in the transmitter ? Such as 1,2,3, B/C or the RS232C ( my transmitter is Futaba R603FF ). And which one does the battery go to ?

If anyone has a pic of there battery box, that would much appreciated as well as the throttle linkage set up.

And yes Iam new to this whole thing if you didn't already realize.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

well for the wires...the steering goes into the number 1 slot and t/b servos goes into slot 2....your battery goes into the bat slot and transponder/ or whatever goes into the last slot

The clutch bell should have just a little play, it is okay to double up on the washers if needed.

just make sure the clutch bell can spin freely on its bearings with the nut tightened down over the washers.

Another question I had was, do you need to trim the chassis to fit the pipe. I have JP1, it just doesnt seem to fit all that well.

I have a JP3 and it does come up a little short but still fits without any trimming of the chassis. I had to make a new longer exhaust hanger but that was it.

I also run a JP3 and had no problems. Just turn the hanger post if needed.
