    Sounds like the same thing that happened to my daughter's Bronco a month ago. The steering servo went first and the ESC flashed a sequence that was not listed in the manual. After restarting the ESC...

    The power is tapped directly of the battery connector (visible in the background of the photo) and supplies the winch controller, ESS sound module and 4 LEDs in the front bumper. I already changed...
  6. Steering Servo interfering with winch controller?

    The RC4WD Warn winch (RC4ZS1571) in my TRX4 Defender will intermittently start by itself and the first time actually pulled the cable so tight that it broke the hook. I replaced it with a beefier...

    I actually made a cargo box out of styrene to fit over the center section of the rack. A magnet is glued inside the box and a second one to the bottom of the roof rack. That keeps the box in position...

    Just search for Power HD WP-23KG on Amazon. They also sell a waterproof 20KG version and I have seen a comparison video on YouTube that claims that it is more powerful than the higher rated version....

    I lost mine while the truck was parked in the grass! It happened when I stopped with the wheels turned. The controller tried to center the wheels when I let go of the steering wheel but the front...

    I have installed the kit in my Defender without any problems and used it for about 6 months now. Did you use the cable with the multi-connector plug on one end? That cable fits into the power supply...

    I bought the TRX4 Defender in April and still consider myself fairly new to this. Your question is not stupid, just part of the learning curve. The Defender and Tactical Unit have the same chassis...

    Sorry for the confusion; I saw the photos in the thread and didn't realize that they also showed the smaller winch.

    Maybe you should still consider getting the small winch and an available bumper...
  15. Another option

    I installed this heavy one on my Defender. It's a little pricey but works perfectly with the Warn winch and also gives it some protection. A side benefit is that you add some extra weight to the...

    I have been using the Power HD WP-23KG from Amazon for 2 months now without any problems. It fit into location without any modifications, but I did need a 4" servo extension cable to connect it into...

    Sticky: First trail crawl in the woods

    Took my Defender crawling in the forest and tried my hand at making a short video of it. The truck is stock except for a 9t pinion to slow it down. I added the ESS Dual + sound system and made some...

    Thanks for the links, TraxxasTyro, those systems are a little more than she wanted. Both of us are newbies to the hobby and would have trouble to put all the parts together. And we are no purists for...
