The only thing I broke on mine is the stock motor from hard impact, upgraded to brushless now.

Thanks, but I didn't ask how to disable it. 8)

But I did find Tony Phalen's page that describes how to make a custom one. Too bad there isn't a better one (than stock) available for purchase.

You could just use one of these instead. I have one on my micro rs4 and it works great.

That's way too big for an 18T.
