Long time ago I saw this expert driver, Casey Peck Of Losi not using switch, ever since I have not been using one It was back when he raced for Thunder Tiger, so it was alittle bit ago I have not had any issues with that set-up since, I love it and have pasted that tip along myself now

I to have had to many switch failures and have been running without for about 9 months now in both my buggy and truggy with no more issues. I notch the front and rear of the rx lid and put the lipo out the front and regulator out the back and just plug them in.

I prefer the convenience of a switch, they are cheap and I replace them once a season. I hate having wires sticking out and letting dust in the receiver box, rather lose a cheap switch than an expensive receiver.
