The big brown PCB thing is a mechanical speed control, and there is a servo that controls it. You need to take out the big brown speed control + servo and replace it with your esc.
The esc should be wired to the cells and the motor and then set up to your radio gear like the instructions should say.

your best bet is to find someone locally to help you.. if your only 8, and not very knowledgeable on the car you should ask someone there who can show you.. this way you wont burn anything up..

The white ceramic piece in the metal cage will come off also. It's not used with an ESC.

Your resistor(white ceramic thing in cage) is right behind the battery slot on the right side of the car mounted to the side of the chassis.

It's on the right side of the car beside the receiver. The wires from your mechanical speed control go to it. When you start to pull out that wiring octopus, you'll see what I mean. You shouldn't have to hook up a motor for setting the ESC. Most instructions tell you to disconnect it anyway. If you want to send me a plane ticket to London, I'll show you how its done.

No need to have any motor installed for ESC setup. Generally if you hook somthing up wrong it will be the ESC that gets fried anyway not the motor. You just need to follow the ESC directions very carefully.
If your still not sure just take a pic of the car with the ESC wired up but not hooked up to the battery, and post it so we can check it for you.

Weight reduction..its a good thing
Stick it where it fits
Access the motor from the other side of the car(not the motor side)
or you could try it with that motor
btw have you got a battery ?

yep yep and yep got out the old motor in whent the new motor ta da, giving it a gentle run in!!

yer i got 2 batterys with it a 1200 and a 2400 which seems ok will get a bigger one sooner but bearings are probably a higher priority

looks good and im just about to take it for a spin 8)

the heat sink i brought thoe is no good cos the motor is shorter than the original and sits more inside the case what a waist of a few quid but il give it to my mate who has the mini cos his is stock at the moment


so its time to give him an ass whooping
