[QUOTE=P-DUB]Must be that sweet tweakboard he is using


Can somebody please talk me through the electronics and the way they are being used on this car. I see a few things on it that I don't recognise.
What is it on top of the servo?
Why is he using 2 capacitors?
What is it on the right hand side of the car beside the servo under the on/off switch.
How has he worked his connections? What is plugged into what? Why is there the plug on top of the sevo?

Plug on top of the servo is no doubt for a reciver pack, which I would assume is on the right of the servo (you can see it's plugged in).
Two capacitors...dunno, more punch??
Would the thingon top of the servo be a special shockty??

I believe Orr is using a lithium receiver pack and the thing on the servo is a voltage regulator for that. The plug in top of the servo is for the voltage regulator. I also believe the transponder is under his switch.

To the right of the servo is his personal transponder, coloured in black. Notice the slight recess in it a few MM from the edge. That gives it away

Right side of the car right next to the antenna mount is the receiver without the case. Outside of that looks like the lipo receiver pack which is plugged into the voltage regulator on top of the servo. The receiver pack plugs into the red plug on top the servo but is unplugged because he is charging the lipo pack...the Smart Charger 2030 is a lipo charger. Under the switch, already said, is the transponder.

Thanks for that. But why the need for two capacitors?

One could be for speedy, the other in the reciever.

Looks like a regular AE VCS Micro shock with some sort of surface treatment on it like hard anno or teflon impregnation. It looks more gray than normal.
